  1. Mitt's got millions invested in the Cayman Islands
    "Although it is not apparent on his financial disclosure form, Mitt Romney has millions of dollars of his personal wealth in investment funds set up in the Cayman Islands, a notorious Caribbean tax haven." – ABC News
  2. Mitt pays a tax rate lower than most middle-class Americans
    Even though Mitt's worth as much as $250 million, "Republican candidate Mitt Romney believes his effective tax rate—the share of his income he pays in federal taxes—is around 15%, or, as he put it, "probably closer to the 15 percent rate than anything..." – Christian Science Monitor
  3. Under Mitt's own tax plan, he'd pay half of what he'd pay otherwise
    "Under his plan, Romney in 2013 would see his taxes cut by nearly half of what they would be if you use current law as a baseline." – Washington Post
  4. Mitt jokes he's "unemployed," but he's still making millions a year off investments
    "In what would be the final deal of his private equity career, he negotiated a retirement agreement with his former partners that has paid him a share of Bain's profits ever since, bringing the Romney family millions of dollars in income each year and bolstering the fortune that has helped finance Mr. Romney's political aspirations." – New York Times
  5. Mitt made over $300,000 in speaking fees last year—but called it "not that much"
    "He also said he had earned 'a little bit of income' from his book, which he donated to charity, and 'speakers' fees from time to time, but not very much.' Romney earned almost $375,000 in speaking fees from Feb. 26, 2010, to Feb. 20, 2011, according to his personal financial disclosure." – Bloomberg
