Good point Ted. I can just imagine these politicians drafting language on taxation knowing that they have a loophole here or there so at the end of the day it isn't anymore money out of their pockets.

Isn't there enough ridiculous politics in our own sport without having to get into this crap?

Seems like a non-story and bit of a reach, considering all the shenanigans that are pulled every day in this country by the weathy (see: Sachs, Goldman).

We wouldn't even be hearing about it if he wasn't a politician.

just sayin'...

I nominate this as stupidest thread ever(Besides anything started by Sunkin). I , and many of us on this board, pay an accountant to find every available legal deduction possible.
If you don't like the guy that's fine but this is a non story.

Anyone who is going to change their political option due to any comments made by someone else on any OSO chatboard, please raise your hand.
