[VIDEO] Fed up Bill Maher says liberals could lose him over “ridiculous” California taxes

Bill Maher on talkshow“Liberals — you could actually lose me,” were the actual words said out loud by far Left entertainer Bill Maher on Friday. The outspoken liberal is feeling the burden of California’s high taxes and seems to have had enough.

The comment was sparked after MSNBC host Rachel Maddow argued on Maher’s HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher” that ”the Ryan budget is a document that says the big problems in America right now are that rich people do not have enough money.”

“They need relief from confiscatory tax rates,” she added.

Surprisingly, Maher fired back.

“You know what? Rich people – I’m sure you’d agree with this,” Maher said addressing former Congressman Tom Davis (R-VA), “actually do pay the freight in this country.”

“I just saw these statistics. I mean, something like 70 percent. And here in California, I just want to say liberals – you could actually lose me. It’s outrageous what we’re paying – over 50 percent. I’m willing to pay my share, but yeah, it’s ridiculous.”

Millionaires in California pay 14.63 percent in state taxes, not to mention the 39.6 percent they pay in federal taxes.

In this case, you can take away his dignity. You can even take away his freedom. But, you can’t take away Maher’s money — unless you’re President Obama.

    Where would he go? After all his anti religious vitriol, & now Romney-ization (or anti Rubio-ism) of the average joe… Congress? Imagine how he’d bicker if Eisenhower was supreme dictator, oppressing the rich with Ike’s notorious 91% income tax on the rich. Hell, if we could get Ike back, we may be able to get rid if Maher for good! Nina Simon style, or W.E.B Du Bois like. Soros, Every rapper, Buffet, liberal celebrities would all ditch US for Eurpoe, or Asia. I mean so would the Kochs, Addelson, Rockefeller and Bloomberg and every pundit, but Boy!
