This article from SBWire quoted an ATR press release about the boxer, Manny Pacquiao, who found taxes too high to continue to fight in the United States:
“As ATR wrote in February:
Since Pacquiao is not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, he can keep a larger percentage of his fight earnings by taking fights outside of the U.S. The other options Pacquiao and his management team have considered are Macau and Singapore: both casino and gaming markets are comparable to Las Vegas and ideal to host a grand boxing event.”
The following blog by Chuck Muth of FoxReno calls out Assemblywoman Michele Fiore of Las Vegas who broke the Taxpayer Protection Pledge: “BLOG: Dr. Jekyll and Assemblywoman Hyde”
“You can count the number of philosophical, as opposed to rhetorical, conservatives serving in this year’s Nevada Legislature on one hand. Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-Las Vegas) is one of them. Alas, the freshman has proved to be quite the Jekyll-and-Hyde conservative.
When Fiore has been right – as with her campus carry bill – she has been very, very right. But when she’s been wrong – breaking her signed Taxpayer Protection Pledge by voting to raise the sales tax in Clark County as a payback to the cops union for supporting her campus carry bill – she’s been very, very wrong.”
Also, check out this Op-Ed by Kimberley A. Strassel of The Wall Street Journal on the IRS scandal:
“This history also casts light on White House claims that it was clueless about the IRS's targeting. As Huffington Post's Howard Fineman wrote this week: "With two winning presidential campaigns built on successful grassroots fundraising, with a former White House counsel (in 2010-11) who is one of the Democrats' leading experts on campaign law (Bob Bauer), with former top campaign officials having been ensconced as staffers in the White House . . . it's hard to imagine that the Obama inner circle was oblivious to the issue of what the IRS was doing in Cincinnati." More like inconceivable…If the country wants to get to the bottom of the IRS scandal, it must first remember the context for this abuse. That context leads to this White House.”
