Romney Pays No Taxes ...

... under the Paul Ryan tax plan.

Actually, he does pay a small amount. Matthew O'Brien of The Atlantic estimates that in 2010, a year for which we do have Romney's full tax return, Romney would have paid an effective tax rate of 0.82%. As in < 1%. The only reason he'd even pay that is because of his income on his speaking fees which, you know, is "not very much" according to Romney himself.

I'll agree with the pundits on this: Picking Ryan sure was "bold."
