    Concerning his situation he's completely correct. The big question is whether or not that tax situation is ever addressed. I'm betting not. We will argue to raise taxes on "income" and some will claim a victory even though none will be had.

    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%
    Wait, we did this last night, so I already know the dance. Show me where he mentioned his secretary(you have yet to do this). Until you do that, he is not the one who is lying.

    Or more like you running from the Obama results when those results are posted?

    He is playing within the rules on his personal taxes. That is only reasonable and again not hypocrisy. He is stating the rules should be changed, even though that would be not in his best interest.

    It isn't obvious? When the facts are against you, you go to use special tactics.
