Presumptive Republican vice-presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan has released two years of tax returns, double what Mitt Romney has released, which show he has paid taxes at a much higher rate than the Bain Capital founder.
Ryan and his wife Janna had gross income in 2011 of $323,416, much of which came from investments inherited by Mrs. Ryan, and they paid 20 percent in taxes.
In 2010, Ryan paid an effective tax rate of 17 percent.
