When given the chance to put their own money where their mouths are, liberals tend to renege.
Having criticized her Republican opponent for voting against a millionaires’ tax measure, U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said here Friday that she opted not to pay a voluntary higher tax rate in Massachusetts.
“I paid my taxes, and I did not make a charitable contribution to the state,” Warren, who worked with the Obama administration to create the new consumer financial protection bureau, said when asked if she paid a 5.85 percent state income tax instead of the standard 5.3 percent — a choice given to Massachusetts taxpayers.
Elizabeth Warren also claims to be the “intellectual foundation” of the “Occupy” protests. Warren Buffett has yet to open his checkbook and give the IRS the difference between what he already pays and what he thinks he should.
