    Yep, It

    Earlier this week Elizabeth Warren was asked by the Boston Globe a seemingly simple and straightforward question about her taxes: In 2011, did she pay the 5.85% rate (which is voluntary) on her Massachusetts state tax form? Since 2001, as I explained in a previous post, residents of the Commonwealth have had the option – if they so choose – to pay a higher tax rate than the 5.3% minimum. And since the former consumer advocate raked in more than $700,000 last year, the Globe believed their inquiry was an appropriate and reasonable one. At the time, however, she refused to answer the question and though I was quick to criticize her silence, I acknowledged that it was still possible she paid the top rate. Unsurprisingly – according to the Brown campaign – it’s clear she did not.

    Hey, she didn't have to, so she didn't. She may continue to demand that the laws be passed to make her do so.

    Same with all those, THAT COULD HAVE CHOSEN TO PAY MORE TO IRS, THROUGH CONTRIBUTION, but chose not to. Including some on this board, along with Obama and many, many others. The rules and ability to do so are there, they choose not to.

    She's a 1%er.

    I don't hear the left blasting her for being out of touch.

    She was no consumer advocate there,either.
    she sucked rocks,and only appeases complaints to her own interests.

    It's almost like you are looking for those that are screaming for 'fairness' to lead by example? Silly.

    Of those who earn more than 250K yearly and post on this board, I doubt one pays more taxes voluntarily.

    This OP has no significance.
