The U.S. Senate’s leading proponent of tax increases on the American people — Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) was delinquent on his property taxes on until a reporter called him to ask him about it.
Brown who supports higher income, energy and investment taxes did not pay his property tax on a luxury condo in Washington, DC. He was late on his payment since last September. Curiously, Brown paid his “fair share” after a reporter called his office to inquire about why he was late.
Brown, who is battling Ohio State Treasurer and veteran Josh Mandel, is one of the Senate’s leading spokesmen for big labor and big government. Brown consistently demands that Americans pay “fair share” in taxes proposing a new surtax on adjusted gross income.
Should we be shocked to find out that Brown failed to contribute his “fair share” of taxes? It’s no different than Sen.John Kerry housing his yacht in Rhode Island to avoid paying $500,000 in sales tax on it. It’s no different than another tax-raiser Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) using a loophole to avoid paying $43,000 in property taxes.
Liberals love taxes when other people pay them. “Fair Share” Sherrod Brown is a hypocrite of the highest order. This is just the latest example.
