RNC To Hillary: Will You Pay The Extra Taxes You Want To Force On Other Americans?

This would mean that Hillary should write a check for over $4.6 million dollars to the IRS

(Breitbart) Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus will, on Monday, send a letter to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal tax attorney Rorrie Gregorio, asking her if Clinton has paid the tax rates she expects billionaires and millionaires to pay — or if she’s not leading by example.

Under Hillary Clinton’s own tax plan, those making more than $5 million a year would be required to pay a surcharge to the treasury. In doing the math, since 2001, the Clintons would need to pay nearly $5 million more in taxes to comply with their own proposal. Clinton’s campaign tells Breitbart News she’ll pay that much just as soon as the RNC agrees to the rest of her policy agenda.

“As Hillary and Bill Clinton’s financial and estate planner, as well as their personal accountant, I am writing to you on this annual tax day to inquire as to whether Hillary Clinton has chosen to put her money where her mouth is, and pay the additional taxes she is hypocritically proposing that other Americans of similar income pay, but not said she is willing to voluntarily pay herself,” Priebus writes in the letter to Gregorio, a copy of which was provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of its public release.

Priebus goes on

This 4-percent “surcharge” would effectively create an entirely new tax bracket for people at the top 0.01 percent, such has herself. Since leaving the White House in early 2001, at a time when she claimed to be “dead broke,” the Clintons have earned at least $186,674,757 in taxable income. In 2014, the last year in which the Clintons have publicly released their tax returns, they earned $22,787,248, their highest single year of taxable income since being “dead broke.” With the Clintons’ tremendous income, I am calling upon them to fully embrace her new tax by applying the “surcharge” to her family’s previous income since 2001 when her family income has been in excess of $10 million on average annually.

Going back to 2001, this 4% surcharge would mean a tax bill of $4,687,898.56, and the Clintons would owe $711,489.92 for 2014. Of course, as we see in the 2nd paragraph of the excerpt, Clinton won’t practice what she preaches until everyone else is forced to do the same, much like with the way Warmists refuse to walk the talk in reducing their own carbon footprints (something that neither Hillary nor Bernie will do). Priebus ends his letter thusly

Whether it was the improper use of interest deductions on their Whitewater real estate loans, or their current use of real estate loopholes to avoid fully paying the estate tax, another tax she seeks to raise, the Clintons can no longer hide their hypocritical penchant for gaming the tax system. The American people are tired of the Clintons playing by their own set of rules. I urge Hillary Clinton to put aside her family’s tax hypocrisy, put her money where her mouth is, and pay the IRS the costs of her own tax hiking agenda.

She won’t. She likes her coffers full
