Mitt Romney Would Pay 0.82 Percent in Taxes Under Paul Ryan's Plan "In 2010 -- the only year we have seen a full return from him -- Romney would have paid an effective tax rate of around 0.82 percent under the Ryan plan, rather than the 13.9 percent he actually did. How would someone with more than $21 million in taxable income pay so little? Well, the vast majority of Romney's income came from capital gains, interest, and dividends. And Ryan wants to eliminate all taxes on capital gains, interest and dividends." http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2012/08/mitt-romney-would-pay-082-percent-in-taxes-under-paul-ryans-plan/261027/

How do you get capital gains? Easy. You invest your capital that you have previously paid income tax on. The key there is "invest". What are you investing in? Easy. Small buisness. What does that investment do to the economy? Easy. Makes it grow. What happens if you tax capital gains? Easy. Domestic investment is reduced. Is that a good thing? Easy. No
