Even the Washington Post says Obama fibbed during his Kansas speech
> http://www.lauraingraham.com/b/Even-the-Washington-Post-says-Obama-fibbed-during-his-Kansas-speech/-43239380013509665.html

The Washington Post reports:

?Some billionaires have a tax rate as low as 1 percent -- 1 percent. That is the height of unfairness.?

This is a striking statistic. But the only evidence that the White House could offer for it was a TV clip of a conversation on Bloomberg TV, in which correspondent Gigi Stone made this assertion during a discussion about the tax strategies that the very wealthy use to avoid paying taxes. The TV clip was promoted by the left-leaning website Think Progress.

Stone quoted from a Bloomberg News article last month that reported on such tax strategies, which mostly involve complicated ways to defer paying capital gains taxes. But the article never made the one-percent claim. It also noted that the IRS had gotten more hostile to such transactions in recent years.

An administration official conceded the White House had no actual data to back up the president?s assertion, but argued that other reports showed that some of the wealthy pay little in taxes.

Oh no! Can it be true?:rolleyes: Do politicians lie? Does O'bama lie? Oh hell yes!;)
Some just lie more than others. At times it just seems to be a game they play. It is very important that they win. I don't think that most of them give a damn if we lose. My evidence? Look at the faces of those we trusted to do the countries business. Now see what they have accomplished while draining the treasury.:mad:

The "1%" is one of those myths circulated by the leftwing to get the votes of people with IQs under 80 - and it's hilarioius to see obama starting to get so desperate that he would use it in a speech. :p
