President Obama’s tax rate was 20.5%, lower than his secretary’s.
As President Obama mounts an aggressive campaign on what he calls tax fairness, his own tax burden has fallen to the lowest of his time in the White House, lower than many who make far less — including his secretary.

First, I’m surprised he allowed this info to get out.
Second, I’m also surprised he didn’t help her cheat, what with there being 12% fewer IRS agents this year, they have already admitted that there will be fewer audits this year.

Loving the irony. I’m guessing they’ll be crunching the numbers again to find a few deductions she misssed to get that number down.

Where is your Fairness now?

BTW if you missed it, that secretary is listed as making as 95k / yr. So she’s well over 100k after figuring in all the bribes, hush money, and assorted other grease.

Has any Democrat suggested lowering the tax rate for secretaries? I thought not.

He got the lower tax rate because he claimed Uncle Omar and his Illegal Aunt as dependents.

Even the WaPo’s Millbank called Obumbler’s “Buffett Rule” a “gimmick” – what’s going on with the MSM, do they realize they’re biting the ass they’re supposed to be kissing?

Don’t worry, the media will be begging Barry for forgiveness.

“I’m sorry, My Lord. Reporting this was a momentary lapse of reason. Please let me back in the house. Pleeeaaazzze?”

And he’ll let them back in, but not without some admonishment like he did SCOTUS. And they will once again behave and circle the wagons around the Prez and attack Fox news. Life will soon be back to normal.

I make only 5 figures and pay the same rate. Anyone got Buffett’s number?
