Ryan's 20 percent

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.

“Governor Romney apparently fears that the more he offers, the more our campaign will demand that he provide.”
