Gingrich Jabs Romney on Taxes

The New York Times notes Newt Gingrich "poked fun" at Mitt Romney's acknowledgment that he paid about a 15% tax rate because his income was largely returns on investments.

Gingrich has long proposed a 15% flat tax option for all taxpayers and said, "I assume this afternoon Mitt will endorse my flat tax proposal and have every American pay at the rate he paid.''

He also offered to dub it "the Mitt Romney flat tax.''
