MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow released President Trump’s 2005 tax returns which not only ended up being a huge nothingburger but it ended up blowing up in her face as it was revealed that Donald Trump paid a higher tax rate than many notable politicians. President Trump paid $36.5 million in income taxes on the $153 million that he earned in 2005 which is a 25% tax rate according to the Associated Press.
MSNBC Comcast which is the company Maddow works for only paid a 24% tax rate according to Citizens for Tax Justice.
Trump paid a significantly higher tax rate than President Obama did according to The Washington Times.
The Washington Times reported: President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama paid more than $81,000 in taxes last year on reported adjusted gross income of $436,065, for an effective tax rate of 18.7 percent, according to tax returns released Friday afternoon by the White House.
Socialist fraud Bernie Sanders, who believes that people need to pay very high taxes, had a tax rate of 13.5% according to Fox News Insider.
And he added that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) paid an effective tax rate of 13.5 percent a few years ago, far below Trump’s 2005 rate of 25 percent.
Once again the plans of the left have not only failed but have blown up in their faces!
