Obama’s Tax Rate Hypocrisy

Taxrates-500x281

Hey, do you remember the last presidential campaign when team Obama regularly attacked Mitt Romney for paying a 14% tax rate? Well, Obama only paid a rate of 18% for 2012, but he’s still out there griping and complaining that rich folks like him aren’t paying their fair share. So why didn’t he pony up and pay the 35% rate, which in his view is only fair? Not to mention that his home, his staff, his food and his travel are all covered by the taxpayers.

“Remember what a big deal ‘fatcat Mitt’ supposedly dodging the tax man was then, and ask yourself why the president paying not much more isn’t remotely a big deal now.”

Nope, nothing to see here. Just move along.
