Teabagger Making $100K Claims He Couldn't Save For A House Because Of High Taxes


Anyone else want to call bulls**t on this guy besides me? On C-SPAN's morning call-in show Washington Journal, a caller from Tacoma Washington called in and after carrying on about the evil expansion of government and those evil government workers and those evil government unions, the caller tells this whopper. He claims that he lives in a trailer home, and makes an annual salary of $100,000 a year, at the age of 51 he could never afford a down payment for a house because his federal taxes are too high.

The median household income in Tacoma is about $47K. Median house or condo value is about 260K. If this guy couldn't afford to buy a house by now, he's not managing his finances correctly. This is what happens to your brain after watching too much ClusterFox and listening to too much right wing radio. Brain fried and mad as hell. I only make $100,000 a year and the "man" is taking me down with all of those high taxes!!
