I’ve lost track of the number of time our resident Liberals have cited the “fact” that American tax rates are among the lowest in the world, and our rich aren’t paying their fair share. Now, however, a noted liberal pundit is admitting publicly that that’s not true
On CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS Sunday, the perilously liberal host actually complained about America’s tax code being too progressive while noting, “The top ten percent in America pay a larger share of total taxes, 45.1%, than do the top ten percent in any of the 24 countries examined” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
I hope that one of the major focuses of this election campaign will be our tax system. For too long we’ve punished initiative and entrepreneurism and rewarded sloth. That has to change.
