Obama Talks Taxes

President Obama can be boring too, when he needs. For example, today, instead of killing pirates, he’s talking taxes. At a speech today, President Obama said he’s working toward “a simpler tax code that rewards work and the pursuit of the American dream.” “We need to simplify a monstrous tax code that is far too complicated for most Americans to understand, but just complicated enough for the insiders who know how to work the system,” Obama said. “It will take time to undo the damage of years of carve-outs and loopholes. But I want every American to know that we will rewrite the tax code so that it puts your interests over any special interest. And we will make it quicker, easier, and less expensive for you to file a return, so that April 15 is not a date that is approached with dread each year.”
