Obama, Romney and income Taxes

Earlier this year, Obama called on Congress to require the highest earners to pay at least 30 per cent of their income in taxes

Yet recently released documents show that in 2011, Obama paid 20.5% of his income in taxes

Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney is even worse. Also recently Mitt Romney released tax returns showing that in 2010, he paid a 13.9 per cent tax rate in 2010 on $21.6 million in income. My income before taxes is 0.08425% of his and yet I still have to pay the same rate as he does? WTF?!
