Bill Maher on California Income Taxes: ‘Liberals – You Could Actually Lose Me’

Bill Maher made a comment Friday that his benefactor and hero Barack Obama should sit up and take notice of.

Speaking about the taxes the rich pay particularly in California, the host of HBO’s Real Time said, “Liberals – you could actually lose me” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

The panel discussion began with a conversation about the various budget proposals currently on the table in Washington.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow predictably slammed Congressman Paul Ryan’s (R-Wisc.) plan.

“The Ryan budget is a document that says the big problems in America right now are that rich people do not have enough money,” she mocked. “They need relief from confiscatory tax rates.”

“Well,” Maher unsuccessfully tried to interrupt as Maddow continued. When she was finally done, he surprisingly pushed back.

HMMM, Bill Maher being intellectually honest?
Sounds like he's channeling Ed Koch, trying to come off as a liberal with sanity?

Let`s see California go with a 75% income tax rate like France.

Then watch the hypocrite neo-marxist elites squeal like pigs at how unfair it is.

Learjet libs are only generous with other people’s money. Even at that it was a shocking statement.

Pray for America

LOL!! I love the look on Rachael’s face when Bill announces that “rich people are actually paying the freight”. I can practically see the cartoon balloon over her head that says, “Huh? This wasn’t in the script....”

“...the big problems in America right now are that rich people do not have enough money,” she mocked.

Actually she is right, but not in the way she meant it.
Even if the gov't confiscates all the wealth of "the rich", it won't solve the problem.

Don’t threaten socialists, Bill. Just give them your money and STFU. They might go “Kill Bill” on your disrespectin’, uppity, off-the-plantation attitude.

As long as he doesn’t show his ugly up around here he can go straight to hell as far as I’m concerned.

That video of Will Smith in France where they talked about taxes and he said oh yeah, I should pay my fair share...then they told him the rate was going to be 70 something. He got this look on his face like he just smelled ten skunks and said his comment was “God Bless America”.

Even the limo libs have a limit

Poor Bill Maher. Be careful what you pay for because you might get it. But will they lose him ..... never, no progressive will ever turn on their master .... no matter how much it hurts, they can’t admit they were wrong.

So the libtards could lose you, ‘ey, Bill? To who?
Better stay where you are at and bite the bullet.
Maybe your libtard pals at HBO will pony up some
more $ for your ample talent. Maybe you could bash
religions a little harder. Tons of high rollers never
get enough of that. One thing for sure don’t bother
us. Conservatives don’t need/want you. However,
you might impress it you build a Christian church
for a fledging congregation somewhere. Give it
some thought. Better yet, go pound sand.

If you have a good year or two and make a million a year you USED TO BE set for life.

Now, after giving 70% to the government you can expect to have to continue to work for the rest of your life instead.
