David Axelrod claims Obama wouldn’t take advantage of tax breaks and tax shelters like Mitt Romney – problem is, Obama did
Heh. Apparently Obama would never take advantage of tax breaks and tax havens like that “evil” Mitt Romney does. This according to Obama senior adviser David Axelrod. Of course, this is a complete and utter lie as usual, and the pink slime media as usual allowed Axelrod to lie through his teeth. Not only does Obama make at least a third of his income from foreign sources, but he also only paid 20.5% of his income in taxes last year. Obama’s tax bracket is 35%, so obviously Obama or his accountant found some ‘loopholes’ to pay less than his fair share. How about those evil tax ‘shelters.’ Seems Obama and his wife set up tax shelters for their daughters back in April right before tax day. Now, I could be wrong here, but last I checked, tax breaks and tax shelters are actually what their names imply. Is David Axelrod going to try and blame Bush for Obama taking advantage of tax loopholes and setting up tax shelters for his children?
Wouldn’t it be nice if the pink slime media would actually call out the Obama regime (and especially Axelrod) on their blatant lies? I know, pipe dream.
