Hypocrite John Stewart Slammed On Taxes

Yes, John Stewart had a little hussy fit over Mitt Romney’s tax returns. Oh, and then we find out

(Bob Bartelby at Yahoo News) Here’s the problem: According to celebritynetworth.com, Stewart earns $15 million per year as his salary on “The Daily Show.” We can assume, because that is a job, he pays closer to the 30 percent rate than Romney’s 13.9 percent.

However, that’s only part of the picture. Stewart is also estimated to have a net worth of $80 million. Depending on how he is invested, he is also earning a substantial income from his $80 million nest egg. Even if he is invested conservatively, he’s likely earning investment income of $4 million per year, which would be taxed at a rate equal to Romney’s. Indeed, between investment income and book royalties, and his salary, more than likely Stewart earns more money in the fiscal year than Romney despite paying a marginally higher tax rate.

Stewart should release his tax returns, let’s see his rates.

Do you know what Liberals like Stewart are really ticked off about? That people use tax deductions to make donations directly, instead of giving the money to the Central Government to do with as they want.
