Obama Cites Tax Dodger Marc Anthony to Push Higher Taxes
 

Tuesday's Obama gaffe is another example of his aids apparently not informing him of all the facts.

Obama was talking about taxes on the rich, and referred to himself and singer Marc Anthony as people who would pay more.

Singer Marc Anthony performed at the Obama event.

What Obama may or may not know however is that Anthony has / had numerous tax liens placed upon him and property, and has failed to file tax returns in the past !!!!



Tuesday, President Obama attacked Mitt Romney and Republican lawmakers for opposing increased taxes on the rich. The President referred to himself and singer Marc Anthony, who performed at the event, as examples of those individuals who would ideally pay more under his plan:

(Note Obama's facial reactions during the speech -- no teleprompter again ?)





Governor Romney disagrees with my vision. That's what democracy is all about: we choose. His allies in Congress disagree with my vision. They've got a different approach. Neither of them will endorse any policy that asks folks like me or Marc Anthony to pay even a nickel more in taxes.


However, Anthony may not be so eager to contribute more to the Federal Treasury. The singer has been cited for millions in unpaid taxes multiple times over the years:

According to a New York judgments and liens filing dating back to March 29, Anthony (under his real name, Marco Antonio Muniz), was hit with a tax lien on some property he owns in Long Island. But that's not the only time he's failed to pay the government its due.

The Latin popster also had a lien filed against the same piece of real estate in December of 2009, this one for $1.6 million, bringing the total amount owed to the IRS to a whopping $3.4 million.

...

In 2007, the crooner paid $2.5 million in back taxes to federal and state governments for failing to file returns on nearly $15.5 million in income over a five-year period.

This report was from 2010. The current status of Mr. Anthony's tax filings is unknown.



More negative news for Obama !

Voters will be short-tempered in November

It's true he was serve from the IRS because he did not pay taxes from 2000 to 2004 but he blamed his accountant and in 2010 he was served again because he did not pay taxes on some real estate he owned. He blamed management. The only thing is that he paid the full amount and the charges were dropped.

You would think if Buffet really anted the rich to pay more taxes he would start by paying what he actually owes.

Using public documents, a certified public accountant detailed Berkshire’s tax problems to Americans for Limited Government researcher Richard McCarty, revealing the damage could be close to $1 billion

So because his views and discussion points don't follow your politics and you label him a troll....classic. Mr. Kettle, meet Mr. Black...I am sure you two will get along just fine.

You wasted a handful of characters, bandwidth and personal time to contribute nothing -- maybe that should be the new tagline of ATS.
