NBC Politics - Mitt Romney's tax returns: He earned $42.5 million, will pay $6.2 million in taxes So he had a Swiss bank account and a Cayman account too, pay's only 13.9% because he's lazy and makes money off of money....and still calls himself a man for it. Is 13.9% fair? Is making money off of money and not really working and getting taxed a lower rate then the rest of us fair? They say he's worth 150-250 million, one of the richest people ever to run for Prez.... I'll give Newt some props though, he payed around a 31% tax rate! But he's as sleazily as they come too, what does that say about good old Mitt?
