My Talking Point #3: ELVIS thought Paying taxes was patriotic. Most working people do.

The King Elvis Presley is said to have paid more taxes in his liftime than anyother us citizen up to that point.

At times he even turned down the advice of tax shelters and other things saying in effect....

"....let the government take their share. I'll just make more money"



What do Republicans have against working hard and making money?

1. I think Warren Buffett has said he should pay his fair share of taxes.

2. Bill Clinton said that he should pay his share of taxes, during the 2004 DNC convention
Of COURSE its patriotic to pay taxes! Especially when we're at war!! What happened to support our troops?

Republicans are such jerks.

4. Yes, but you have to remember:
"Elvis Presley was a model citizen"
