Mitt Romney somehow accumulated 100 million dollars in non-taxed, IRA funds over the past twenty years. The absolute maximum that you can put in such funds is $30K per year. Since Romney isn't several hundred years old, he had to accumulate this astonishing tax hedge in some other fashion.
I wish I knew Romney's secret. A little simple math suggests that, if I could come up with only $3k a year, after 20 years I would have 10 million dollars. If Mitt can show how we all can do this, I will not only vote for him, I will volunteer for his campaign.
Tax experts are scratching their heads over this and other Romney financial matters. The conventional wisdom is that he hasn't released his previous tax returns because the answers to his tax mysteries are much, much worse than hiding them from the voting public.
