Sec. of State Hillary Clinton recently talked to an audience about national security at the Brookings Institute in Washington.
But instead of sticking with national security, she ventured into the realm of taxation. Clinton said the rich in America aren’t paying their “fair share”—she actually applied that statement to any country “facing the kind of employment issues” we’re seeing in the US. And then she praised Brazil for “growing like crazy” despite the fact Brazil has the “highest tax to GDP rate in the Western Hemisphere.”
Clinton not only is guilty of supplying insufficient information about a country she's praising. She's also guilty of hypocrisy when it comes to taxes.
