Mitt Romney brings in just over $20 million a year according to his most recent tax returns. That is a lot of money. Let’s try to put that amount of income in perspective by comparing it to the income earned by an average hourly wage employee. To make as much as Mitt Romney received, a person would need an hourly wage job that paid $10,000 an hour. So a $10,000 bet is just an hour’s pay. No problem.
