“This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don’t pay their taxes is f###ing bulls###. And I voted for the guy and I’m a Democrat. What a f###ing a##hole,” Lovitz said.Normally I don't really care much what the Hollywood crowd has to say, but I think Lovitz is actually channeling pretty effectively what a lot of Americans think about the whole "tax the rich" deal going on with Obama. We all aspire to a more comfortable lifestyle and being rewarded for our efforts, but if once you get there your country suddenly holds you in disdain, that's not healthy for anybody and certainly doesn't help the nation's economic situation.
“The rich don’t pay their taxes? Let me tell you something, right,” he continued. “First they tell you–you’re dead broke–’This is the United States of America, you can do anything you want, go for it.’ So then you go for it, and then you make it, and everyone’s like, ‘F### you.’”
As long as the top 10% continue to pay 70% of income taxes, and almost 50% pay no income taxes, Obama can't make the argument the "rich aren't paying their fare share" with a straight face.
