    Those were his words.
    The first were an exaggeration, but the last one was spot on....and the primary reason for the remark.

    So, if you're a politician who advocates higher taxes on high incomes and a stronger social safety net -- but you yourself earn enough from various sources that you will pay some of those higher taxes and are unlikely to rely on that stronger safety net. A remarkable number of people look at that combination of personal and political positions and cry "Hypocrisy!"

    No, it isn't. Supporting policies that are to your personal financial disadvantage isn't hypocrisy, it's civic virtue.
    LOL

    What a load of BS spin. Making millions through non-profit shenanigans is the pure definition of hypocritical greed. You clearly don't understand that for sure.

    Civic virtue. Geeze, that is pathetic.

    Not only that but the dig on the 47% isn't even true, of the 47% of Americans that don't pay federal income taxes, most of them work and they also pay payroll taxes.

    You know who I call moochers? The multi-billion dollar corporations that hire slick accountants and lobbyists so they avoid paying taxes.
    Of course they have taxes taken off of their paychecks, but then when they file their Federal Income Tax return, they get back more than they paid in, so they end up not paying any federal income tax. I know one person who had $3000 federal income tax deducted from their pay last year, then when they filed their federal return, they got a $7000 refund. There are many people like that, and most are dependent on receiving that refund. That's not being insulting, it's true.

    In what way does your comment relate in the slightest degree to what I posted? I for one would like to see that.

    Do you think Hillary should have mentioned that her son in law is a hedge-manager? What about that Chelsea was hired as one after she graduated?

    Should she have been saying what she did about those hedge managers knowing her family members are involved in it?

    You seriously think that every voter who was a non-net taxpayer voted for Obama?
