Bill Maher.. Hypocrite?

I think so.

Last Friday night, Bill Maher spent time on his HBO show blasting away at liberal tax policy. “You know what?” he asked. “Rich people – I’m sure you’d agree with this – actually do pay the freight in this country.” After noting that California’s wealthy carry the vast bulk of the tax burden in the state, he said, “I just want to say liberals – you could actually lose me. It’s outrageous what we’re paying – over 50 percent. I’m willing to pay my share, but yeah, it’s ridiculous

I don't pay attention to anything Maher does or says.

He is a sellout.

Yes, he's a hypocrite. But

Yes, he's a hypocrite. But so is my sister. She works as an independent consultant, so she actually see's all the taxes that have to be paid, including the full social security tax. She complains about how much money she has to pay but voted for Obama, and pulls the lever for Democrats every time. Of course employees are really paying the same taxes -- when employers hire someone they know they will have to pay half the social security and various other taxes, so they deduct that from what they're willing to offer in salary.

Douglas-fir... tree?
