Romney’s “Speaking Fees”

Jan 23, 2012

Answering a question about his taxes, Mitt Romney said: “... Then, I get speakers fees from time to time, but not very much.”

How much is “not very much”? More than $374,000 from February 2010 to February 2011!

For that amount, many of us have to do real work for 10 years, clocking in and out every single day.
