As the Obama campaign continues to press Mitt Romney to release at least five years’ worth of tax returns, vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan this evening has released his family’s 2010 and 2011 taxes. For a media so focused on tax returns, you’d think reporters would be a bit more excited to have something to do on a Friday night.
Copies of the tax returns themselves are available on the official Romney campaign site.
So, any shocking revelations?
Ryan's tax returns reveals he's a fairly successful dude who gives a sizable amount to charity. The left won't like this, somehow.—

Ryan tax returns show he paid higher effective tax rate than Mitt Romney. 15.9% in 2010 and 20% in 2011.—

Ryan and his wife paid an effective tax rate of 15.9% in 2010 on $215,417 of adjusted gross income, and a 20% tax rate in 2011 on income of $323,416. The Ryans donated $2,600 to charity in 2010 and $12,991 in 2011.
So Paul Ryan releases two years of tax returns…….and he paid 15.9 and 20% respectively AGAIN WHY IS THIS ACCEPTABLE!!??!!—
