While Obama is attacking the rich, or 1%, for not paying “their fare share,” he and his family are literally living 24.22 TIMES more lavishly than the British Royal Family — and it is at the expense of the 70 million workers who actually pay NET federal income taxes:
Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks.
In comparison, British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million on the royal family.
Incidentally, that 70 million NET tax payers means they are carrying the cost of supporting the other 240 MILLION Americans who do NOT pay NET federal taxes. That is 1 NET taxpayer per every 3.43 NON-PAYING Americans. And we’re told THEY aren’t paying their “fair share.” I think Obama has a problem with the English language because — apparently — he doesn’t understand the definition of “fair.”
The issue here is simple: when Obama complains that the PRODUCERS are not paying their fair share, he means HE AND HIS SUPPORTERS are not paying THEIR fair share. That is the very epitome of the 180 degree rule.
