Best Reason So Far

Bill O’Reilly threatened to quit his job if President Obama’s plan to tax millionaires passes.

If Barack Obama begins taxing me more than 50 percent, which is very possible, I don’t know how much longer I’m going to do this. I like my job but there comes a point when taxation becomes oppressive. Is the country really entitled to half a person’s income?

In the first place, no one is talking about taxing him 50 percent. Second, even if the rate was 50%, it wouldn’t be “half his income;” that’s not how the tax code works.

But if doing even close to that is enough to get this waste of chemicals off the air, then by all means pass the damn bill.
