Bill Maher: Taxes Too High on Rich, Liberals ‘Could Actually Lose Me’

Even Bill Maher thinks California taxes are too high.

On his HBO show “Real Time” on Friday he was quick to jump in during a panel discussion on Washington budget proposals, Newsbusters first reported.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow slammed Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan as “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. And poor people have too much access to affordable health care.”

But the liberal Maher disagreed.

"You know what?” Maher responded, “Rich people … 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."

Story continues below video.



In 2010 Maher had a different outlook when writing on The Huffington Post, “I've done some math that indicates that, considering the hole this country is in, if you are earning more than a million dollars a year and are complaining about a 3.6% tax increase, then you are by definition a greedy a--hole.”
