Fish Fillet Posted April 14, 2004 Share Posted April 14, 2004 From CNN.... BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP ) -- Democratic presidential contender John Kerry paid $90,575 in federal taxes on $395,338 in adjusted gross income last year, according to copies of his federal returns released Tuesday by his presidential campaign. The federal tax bill amounted to about 23 percent of his income. Kerry also gave $43,735 to charity. Under 23 percent of his income??? I paid almost 10 percent higher than that on about 7 times less income. Anyways, when Dems start extolling the virtues of Kerry as Pesident I don't mind. I figure that everyone is entitled to their opinion. But please, please don't start waxing philosophic about how Kerry/Dems are the party of the working class, blah blah blah. It makes me crazy when Democratic supporters try to paint Kerry (or any other Dem candidate) as some kind of a "man of the people" who is out to help the middle class (whatever that is) in their never ending fight against those rich bastards who are out to get them.
