Bill Maher argues 0.81% of New Yorkers pay half the city’s taxes, slams ‘tax the rich’ slogan

JTN

HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher on Friday slammed ongoing progressive calls to “tax the rich,” arguing that rich Americans pay a disproportionate share of taxes and that liberals should at least be honest about that statistic. 

Maher made the argument on Friday’s episode of “Real Time.” Pointing to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s recent “Tax the Rich” dress at the Met Gala, the host pointed out that “the rich pay a lot of taxes.”

“I had some stats here,” Maher said, claiming that “the richest 65,000 New Yorkers out of 8 million people pay 51 percent of taxes.”

“It’s not like we don’t tax the rich at all,” he argued. more

    Too late, blue penis nose. They’re your people: woke, vaccinated, government-dependent, no-load, drugged-out, pedophiliac, baby-killing Democrats.

  2. I have never paid any attention to Mr. Maher, but if he is starting to share truth with his leftist audience…..GREAT!

  3. The progressive movement has inculcated the notion that envy is not among the very most destructive of sins and has elevated it to a virtue among it’s followers. Unfortunately weak minded people fall for it.
