Giogump, you are making an assumption that Obama filed the long form and itemizing their deductions. Let's see, no mortage interest deduction, no medical deductions, and only charitable deductions. So, could it be he had to file the standard form? 18.4% puts him in the 1% doesn't it?

Giogump, now you can't disagree with NBC NEWS can you?

"President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama released their federal income tax returns for 2012 (.pdf) on Friday, and the First Wallet took a bit of a hit: the Obama's adjusted gross income was about 23 percent less than what it was in 2011. Their federal income tax rate was 18.4 percent, down from 20.5 percent the prior year"

This is fun - would you like more examples, or are all the news organizations lying? AND, I haven't even pasted a FOX NEWS article.

Giogump: hopefully this is enough to prove to you how wrong you are and how your hero doesn't PAY HIS FAIR SHARE. Is he a 1%er?

From ASSOCIATED PRESS Last Updated: 4:58 PM, April 12, 2013 Posted: 2:39 PM, April 12, 2013 WASHINGTON — "President Barack Obama's 2012 tax returns show he and first lady Michelle Obama paid $112,214 in taxes last year on $608,611 in adjusted gross income. They paid an effective rate of 18.4 percent for their federal income taxes.

The adjusted gross income figure is down from 2011, when the Obamas reported almost $790,000 in income. They made substantially more in previous years, with much of it coming from book sales"

"President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama earned just over $600,000 in 2012, far less than they took in during 2011, according to their tax return, released by the White House on Friday.

The Obamas reported an adjusted gross income of $608,611 during the election year, more than $180,000 less than they grossed for the previous year. They paid $112,214 in federal taxes, an effective rate of 18.4 percent. In 2011, they paid an effective tax rate of 19.2 percent"

Giopitt, the AGI Barry's AGI was $608k. As a sole proprietor, you should know that is what you pay taxes on. He and the Mrs. Paid 18.4%. Less than 3% than Romney, that all you on the left cried about!

"The Obamas "taxable income" was $335,026" where in the name of all that's holy (can I say that) did you come up with that figure? Never mind, go back to Barry's economic team.

what a waste--see dog--do you know what "taxable income" means? The Obamas "taxable income" was $335,026.--they paid $118,000 in fed. tax. Get out yer calculator, if you can tear yourself away from your little button. but I see that as about 32%---not 18%. And lonerider I believe "book sales" were included., but they were not as high as the previous year.

Jay Carney April 12, 2013 01:34 PM EDT Share This Post .Today, the President released his 2012 federal income tax returns. He and the First Lady filed their income tax returns jointly and reported adjusted gross income of $608,611. The Obamas paid $112,214 in total tax.

The President and First Lady also reported donating $150,034 – or about 24.6 percent of their adjusted gross income – to 33 different charities. The largest reported gift to charity was $103,871 to the Fisher House Foundation.

The President’s effective federal income tax rate is 18.4 percent.

ONLY 18% - WHY ISN'T HE PAYING HIS FAIR SHARE??????????

changing the election process is more complicated than a comment from a single talking head, lonerider--check out the stragety of those republican and tparty governors and legislatures in the last election[ex-Fla]--they could best inform you. But I might add--they failed miserably.

Giopitt - NO. First of all how do you know McConnell asked his staff to do it?

"I never gave him my permission to use my tax$$ for that-DID YOU"

# 1 see above. #2 I never gave Obama permission to use my tax$$ to: give Egypt fighter jets or tanks, to use our military against Libya, to invest in Solyndra, to have a party at the WH on Tuesday when Americans can't tour, to play more golf than all Presidents combined, or to let his baby's grandma live in the WH for free. Want me to continue?
