I think this illustrates that, whether in chart form or not, the data and our interpretation of it is what matters.
I think Heathen's position in this case is that any openness by Mitt Romney about his taxes that disproves Reid's assertions and embarrasses him would be a reward to Senator Reid's bad behavior.
So keeping his tax secrets to himself is a sort of sacrifice in furtherance of the public good. Kind of noble of Mr. Romney, if you think about it.
I agree, but only when both sides are presented, as this unusual chart did. That is why I think the Heathen Republican probably loved it so much that he posted it on his site.
Like you, he probably welcomed the rare opportunity to tell both sides of the story. Additionally, he has already posted something explaining that the tax rate Romney pays is common among the rest of us as well, so I think he would welcome the opportunity to compare that rate to the rate Obama pays.
In Romney's defense, it doesn't look like Obama managed his money very well. He paid excess taxes. I hope he manages federal funds a little better. Well, I mean if it were his hat to manage federal funds, I would hope that.
