This freakin‚Äô guy.
Any jagoff who claims he‚Äôs proud to pay 40 cents of every dollar he makes in taxes is either a complete moron or a total liar.
Perhaps in Obama‚Äôs case we should learn to embrace the power of ‚Äėand.‚Äô
Look at this mess:

Did Team Biden really think bringing in Obama was a good idea?
I don't know about now, but as President he never paid that high an effective tax rate.
And tax rates today ARE LOWER. https://t.co/EK2tLEO9t7

BUT HE‚ÄôS PROUD TO PAY IT!
Last public returns.
"The Obamas paid $81,472 in total tax. The President‚Äôs effective federal income tax rate is 18.7 percent."https://t.co/EmVohJLaYg

Now, this was five years ago and it‚Äôs absolutely possible that magically Obama started paying more even though tax rates dropped A LOT, especially for those evil rich 1%rs buying homes in Martha‚Äôs Vineyard, but hey ‚Ä¶ no one has ever accused Obama of being overly honest.
Yeah, we said that twice.
Only a socialist would look at losing 40% of every dollar they earn as a "blessing"

Like your administration: WHY HAVEN‚ÄôT YOU DONE it ?@BarackObama
nothing is stopping you from writing that check during tax season

Seriously, Obama should feel free to just write a check.
I think Obama should pay more than 40 cents on every dollar since he's so proud to do it. There's nothing preventing him from contributing more‚Ä¶
