The conservative freakout over the president’s tax return has begun. Drudge and the National Journal are screeching over the president NOT qualifying for the Buffett Rule because he only made around $800,000 last year.
He didn’t earn more than a million dollars last year. So?
Meanwhile, how did you do this year? The president paid a 20 percent effective tax rate on $800,000. How about you? Did you get a refund? Did you pay more? Have you ever been audited? Let fly!
