Paul Krugman on Mitt Romney’s “47% Percent” Gaffe

Actually, if you look at the facts, you learn that the great bulk of those who pay no income tax pay other taxes; also, many of the people in the no-income-tax category are (a) elderly (b) students or (c) having a bad year, having lost a job — that is, they’re people who have paid income taxes in the past and/or will pay income taxes in the future.

    really wants to understand this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost hard
    to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).
