One Good Reason To Raise Taxes

Bill O'Reilly might quit.

Of course, Bill-O is throwing crap on the walls to see what sticks. His fear mongering about a 50% income tax is purely wild speculation. No one in the White House has ever claimed that number, only a reversal to the Clinton Era tax rates, which were 36% and 39.6% for individuals in the top 1.2% of wage earners. And in actuality, after deductions and loopholes, they didn't even pay that much.

But hey, if Bill O'Reilly will quit working altogether because of a 3% hike in his taxes, that's all the more reason to support President Obama's revenue increase plan. I'm sure O'Reilly's narcissism will allow him to go quietly into the night and forgo the $20 million he makes a year. No more Fox. No more books. No more showing how he's so much smarter he is than everyone else on the planet. I'm sure that the self-avowed second most powerful man in the nation will go that route. Maybe he can just go back to a simple life of sexual harassment.

Lets take his ridiculous argument seriously for a moment.He says he could have his taxes raised 50%.Well he pulled he pulled that one deep from deep of the recesses of his rectum.Second he makes a reported 10million a year and say he gets taxed at 50% that means poor Billo would only keep $5million.So he would rather quit and not make any money at all if he had to settle for a lousy 5million? Pass me a bucket so I can Puke!He needs the money so he can payoff the producers hes been sexually harassing.
