Jon Lovitz On Barack Obama

Filmed live at the Lovitz Podcast Theater in Los Angeles, April 28, 2012.

"Obama saying the rich don't pay their taxes is fucking bullshit, and I voted for the guy and I'm a Democrat.  What a fucking asshole."

"First they tell you when you're broke, this is the United States of America, you can do anything you want, go for it.  So then you go for it, and then you make it, and everyone's like, fuck you."

Lovitz detailed his taxes in another clip I saw.  He pays 35% federal income tax, 11% state income tax, 7% FICA tax, plus property taxes and city taxes in California.

That's 60% of his income going to taxes.  And he's not complaining about paying it.  What he is complaining about is Obama saying that the rich aren't paying their fair share.

Lovitz appeared with Bill O'Reilly a week later to discuss his comments.

Capitalism & 'the Markets' are Complex Systems created, overseen, operated, repaired and MANIPULATE by Complicated Humans with MYRIAD HIDDEN AGENDA (ex.: Racism, Arrogance, Greed, Egotism & Self-Aggrandizement). This fact makes them prone to HIGH RISK OF FAILURE. Moreover, said systems ALWAYS make for UNEQUAL WEALTH & INCOME distribution.

Suprise, Mr. Lovit 'fair share' is totlly SUBJECTIVE. so many WEALTHY OLD WHITE FOLKS make so much money so many LEGAL, ILLEGAL & UNLAWFUL WAYS it would take 1,000 AUDITORS 1 LIGHTYEAR to make a rational Tax Liability judgement.
AND THAT'S HOW THE OLD WHITE WEALTHY LIKE IT! Americans must FIGHT FOR A 1-PAGE '1040' FOR ALL AMERICANS!
All folks makin' over given amounts REGARDLESS OF SOURCE(S) (ex.: $1 Million, 100,000, etc.) pay a given % in Taxes.
iT'S ALL DONE ONE 1 PAGE WITH 1 DEDUCTION - 1 U.S. RESIDENCE ONLY & Taxes to be paid on all FOREIGN RESIDENCES!

the Robin Hood tax is sounding pretty good ...especially for the High Frequency Traders scam.

Ok, maybe its just me, but I don't think Jon Lovitz is the "rich" who don't pay taxes. He for one may be paying, but that doesnt mean all rich people are. Plus, is he in the top 10% of weath even? A lot of Obamas cabinet are about the same wealth, maybe more and they don't pay taxes. Mitt Romney doesn't pay much for taxes. the list goes on. Obama is an asshole though, for other reasons.
Nov 28, 2012 at 1:44 PM | Unregistered CommenterWhat?
hey "What":

1) top 10% starts at $150k income. You think Lovitz makes less?!?!

2) Romney paid $2mil in taxes last year.

Without the CFRtv, Lovitz would be making $150.00 a night

hey "jsw",

Why should Romney get away with 14 to 15 percent?

Final 2011 return:
Adjusted gross income: $13,696,961
Total federal tax paid: $1,935,708
Effective federal tax rate: 14.1 percent
Final 2010 return:
Adjusted gross income: $21,646,507
Total tax paid: $3,009,766
Effective rate: 13.9 percent
