ManBearPig Hypocrisy! Al Gore Sold Current TV Before January 1st to Save Taxes!
Gore’s post-vice presidential work has notably centered around reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other green causes. The former vice president will pocket an estimated $100 million on the sale. According to the New York Times, which first broke the story Wednesday, Gore wanted to complete the sale before Jan. 1, 2013 to avoid getting slammed with higher taxes.
So not only is Al Gore making millions from dirty dirty Big Oil interests, but he’s cheating the government and trying to get out of his “fair share” of taxes!!
According to the Fiscal Cliff deal, earnings above $400,ooo will be taxed at a rate of 39.6 percent, up from the current 35 percent. That means Al Gore saved $4.9 million by selling out early – but I thought the wealthy don’t “need” or “want” those tax savings, right Obama?
This is exactly the principle we talked about on our last podcast – like the pigs in Animal Farm, liberals ascribe rules for everyone else but not for themselves. In other words, all man-bear-pigs are equal, but some are more equal than others!!
For Shame, Man-Bear-Pig!
