Romney's 47%

Talking Points Memo points us to the following graph from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities:

It should be pointed out, I think, that in most states the 30% of 47% who don't pay payroll taxes DO pay sales taxes (as do the other 70% of 47%). I'll bet some pay property taxes, too.

Arch-conservative William Kristol in the arch-conservative Weekly Standard:  "Romney seems to have contempt not just for the Democrats who oppose him, but for tens of millions who intend to vote for him."
