Boxer Mike Tyson says he and his wife and family are liberals, but admits, "I had more money when Bush and Reagan was president.”

“My wife is going to kill me for that one," he said on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning.

When told that George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan believed you should get to keep your money, Tyson replied, “Yeah, I like that to work for me,” adding,” I’m going to work on that one, too, with this Obama administration, hoping this Obamacare helps us keep some money.”

Tyson currently is performing a one-man show on Broadway, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.” In the show Tyson talks about his life in an effort to raise money to pay millions in back-taxes he owes the IRS.

"I know that they say that’s legal extortion, but I’m living in this country, and if I have to pay taxes — that’s the money I paid for my life on earth,” Tyson said.
