you should have had more dividend income. Did Romney break any laws? more tax free bonds too.
why hate a smart man? paying less taxes if done legally is not a problem unless you're a hater.
the real problem is with those who dropout of high school and never contribute in this country but take take take. Or those that workk and then collect unemployment and on and off again. May be legal but certainly nothing to be proud of.
be a one employee contracting company( if you have connections) & takes no salary thus pay no earned income or social security taxes. At same time gives yourself dividend such that company makes no profit & pay no corporate tax, only tax to be paid is capital gain @ 15%. The concept of lower capital gain tax because it generates investment is a poor excuse. Dividend paying stocks have higher yields than CDs or government bonds and less risk than equities. Investors make their decision based on such and shall continue to do so even tax rate is higher. Folks have to think like a bean counter to convince themselves what to believe, don't accept opinion for granted.
