Mitt Romney released his tax returns from 2011 today. He made roughly $13.7 million from his investments. He paid $1.9 million in taxes and gave over $4 million to charity.
Giving 30% of your earnings to charity speaks loudly to the construct of a persons character because it’s what you do when you don’t *have to*.
Despite all of Mitt Romney’s shortcomings, most of which are optical stiffness, he and his wife are very genuine, honest, caring and generous people.
