Patricia Arquette proposes tax breaks for gays

Tax policy expert and “Medium” actress Patricia Arquette believes gay Americans should receive a 50% tax break until they are allowed to marry.

Maybe she is auditioning for a new reality show, “When Celebs Mouth Off.”

To her credit, Patty showed some self-awareness in this tweet:

    All this crap about @ChickfilA donations well I heard that donates to Pro Gay rights were is the coverage of that? no outrage nothing so quiet

    • Stephanie Snyder Staker

      what are we supposed to be outraged about? Amazon is doing what it believes is right just as Chick-Fil-A CEO in expressing his opinion. Geesh!

      • Michael Rice

        I believe the point was, they are both expressing their thoughts, yet, only one is met with outrage…..think hypocrisy..

        • tazachusetts08

          Yes that is my point Michael exactly outrage against Chickfila expressing their thoughts none with Amazon expressing theirs glad to see someone understands.

      Old Navy also donated to Dan Savage’s gay charity.

  • Michael Belba

    and I think we should tax Hollywood Tartlets at 100% – especially when they are as stupid as Patricia Arquette….

    • lillymckim

      Now THATS a tax I can get with! Right on!

  • J.N. Ashby

    If people that aren’t allowed to marry should only have to pay half the tax, then people that don’t pay taxes shouldn’t be allowed to vote. Fair’s fair right?

    • TugboatPhil

      And anyone on welfare forfeits their voting rights until fully employed.

  • Kurt Roberts

    Arquette is a babbling idiot!!!! Just like her pimp, B.O.!!!!

    • A Willful Boy

      Heh. Well, that makes us practically related.

  • Shirlene Denny

    Another inbred hollywood lib.

    A great thing about Twitter is now you know which celebrities are dog shit stupid, and which are not, because the dumbest ones can’t wait to show us.

    • James Atkins

      Jake, you rat, I almost spat Pepsi on my computer screen.

    • Frank Magistro

      Amen, Brother!!

  • Michael Rice

    Brothers and sisters are not allowed ot marry, either. if I say I want to marry my sister can I get the tax break too?

  • Timothy-Allen Albertson

    gays outta be charged double taxes what with their drain on the public health services arising from their much, much higher incidence of STDs than hetrosexuals

  • Michel Ouellette

    Sure, as long a votes are allotted proportional to the taxes you pay. 50 % would not be able to vote at all, and with her plan, gays would only have a half of a vote. I would get to vote 12 times, as I carry all. Of these whack doodles.

  • americanscott

    Oh, okay so by that math, we only have two “rights”. Apparently one is marriage and the other is…??? Just wondering because I am sure the Constitution says NOTHING about marriage whatsoever in it so my guess is she is making rights up as she goes. Maybe the other one is the right to chicken sammies!

  • vino veritas

    I’ll say this for her… she’s still pretty hot but equally stupid. Someone should have told her that school notebook scribbles are usually private and dont get displayed over the internet for the whole world to see for good reason.

  • V.L.

    So at the end, it’s about money, not about love?

  • kateorjane

    why do celebs think they know squat about serious issues?

  • Gussie Fink-Nottle


  • carmijok

    How would they identify themselves? I mean they claim it’s discrimination to have to show any kind of ID to prove your citizenship to vote…so obviously all you’d have to do is proclaim your gayness to get a 50% tax break! I think she’s on to something! Sign me up!
