George Soros to Enjoy ‘Shared Sacrifice’ of Paying $6.7 Billion Tax

George Soros is often called the “Godfather of the Left” for supporting a worldwide network of progressive causes with over $550 million in donations.

Now, according to an Irish regulatory filing by Soros, he will soon be enjoying the shared sacrifice of paying a 50 percent tax that will wipeout a quarter of his net worth.
