    Governor File #1: Governors will pay their fair share of taxes, and not exploit every loophole they can find to worm out of it.

    Governor File #2: Governors will lead by example and not ask citizens to do or pay anything they wouldn’t pay.

    Governor File #3: Governors earning $190,000 a year despite any charitable contributions they may have made, will agree to at least pay 10% in income tax to the people of the state that elected them.

        Thats the point I will pay my full share on 30,000 and he should pay full share on 190,000. Laws need to change if you can wiggle taxes on that amount down to $52 the system is broke!
