that is dishonest on several dimensions
1) he has not said what his secretary makes so there is a failure of proof
2) secondly, he has structured his compensation so as to have a minimal salary thus avoiding taxes though he pays 35% on his salary but his overall rate, mostly investment income is lower
3) unless his secretary is making 200K or so her EFFECTIVE tax rate is still lower than his. what he claims is her next dollar is taxed probably at 25% while his at 18%
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
Some of us are investment managers who earn billions from our daily labors but are allowed to classify our income as “carried interest,” thereby getting a bargain 15 percent tax rate. Others own stock index futures for 10 minutes and have 60 percent of their gain taxed at 15 percent, as if they’d been long-term investors.Is that not clear?The mega-rich pay income taxes at a rate of 15 percent on most of their earnings but pay practically nothing in payroll taxes. It’s a different story for the middle class: typically, they fall into the 15 percent and 25 percent income tax brackets, and then are hit with heavy payroll taxes to boot.
