Last week a bunch of Congressmen called in Apple execs to lecture them for -- following the law. Earlier this week Representative Keith Ellison said he was disappointed Apple Corp does not want to pay more in taxes.
Here is my question to all Democrats who think the rich people and corporations should want to pay more in taxes. I will address my question to Mr. Ellison, since he is so passionate. Mr. Ellison, when you filed your taxes last month did you take any deductions? Did you exercise your exemptions? Do you have a retirement account saving money in pretax dollars? Did you deduct from your taxes through claimed charitable donations?
Unless you put your money where your mouth is, Representative Ellison, unless you looked at your total income and went straight to the tax table and paid the maximum amount, you can just drink a big old glass of shut the fuck up you hypocritical asswipe.
Any of you class warfare 'pay your fair share" types who agree with Ellison take the same advice. Lecture me when you are paying the maximum. In fact, the IRS allows you to pay extra if you feel the need.
