What a minute.
I thought Romney said the US had the highest average corporate tax rate
at 20%?
Actually as an example, EXXON Mobile paid 2%.
“10 Most Profitable U.S. Corporations Paid Average Tax Rate Of Just 9 Percent Last Year: IRS Report”
So, Romney wants people like Exxon to pay no taxes? Can’t get much lower than 2%, or even 9%.
If Romney says it, you can believe it is a lie.
