    Obama’s Nutty Weekly Address: Millionaires Need to Pay the Same Tax Rate as Plumbers and Bus Drivers
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, October 8, 2011, 12:05 PM
    In his Weekly Address, Barack Obama says millionaires need to pay at least the same tax rate as plumbers or bus drivers.

    Currently a millionaire’s tax rate is 35%.
    Bus drivers and plumbers pay a tax rate around 25%.

    Honestly, what is Obama talking about?

    From the White House website:
    And, yet once again the liberal media gives the president a complete pass on this obvious lunacy.
     
  2. Will they remove the tax free status of muni-bonds.
    This is the biggest gift to the wealthy.

    He's trying to convince his ignorant followers that millionares have some way to avoid paying their taxes. These ignorant followers are the same ones out doing the protests. They don't have a clue that they are being lied to.
     
  5. Not just for the wealthy. I was able to retire waaay early because of the munis .
    Only the dumbest asshole would ask for ANY new taxes.
     
  6. You're kidding right? The current going mantra pushed by mass media is that the wealthiest top few % pay most of the overall taxes. Most people do not realize just how much tax sheltering goes on. It's a whole industry.
     
  7. You know you can easily prove your point by using the IRS data.
