Accounting not so presidential

Dear Editor:

Wow! Romney admits to never paying more than 13 percent in taxes in the past five years. I thought I was good at avoiding taxes by paying an average of 30 percent (the maximum rate is 39 percent).

Now, I definitely want to see his recent tax returns that he is withholding. If they’re as creative as I suspect, I will fire my accountant and hire Mitt. He will be available after Romney and Ryan lose in November.
