I'm sure Republicans have a lot more ways to do it legally.

Who owns the businesses, the real estate, the stuff that comes with tax breaks?

It's called "Playing within the rules" Try it sometime...

Democrats.

Bill Gates - Democrat.

Warren Buffett - Democrat

Larry Ellison - Democrat

Those “Evil, Rich People” - are Democrats

As demonstrated in that article - a percentage breakdown of the 20 richest Americans shows that 75% are Democrats and 25% are Republican.

Why aren't those "evil rich" Democrats "paying their fair share" - huh?

I do play within the rules - that's why I have never taken a tax break in my life.

Having said that, I suspect Democrats have a greater propensity than Republicans to cheat, but when there are no practical cheating options available, doing so is kinda hard. When you're an illegal alien, cheating on EITC is easy, but when you're a legal worker, cheating is harder to get away with.

You are citing a blog, who cites the daily beast who did their own point system. I have no doubt that there are Democratic politicians that are tax cheats or Republican tax cheats.

What a stupid concept this thread is.

Undoubtedly certain members of this forum on the left would not find it a "stupid concept" if the title had been "Republican tax cheats outnumber Dem. tax cheats."

That just happens to not be true - so you are left with dismissing it because it reflects negatively on your party.

They should be careful sbout trying to call Romney a felon and a tax cheat. That might just come back to bite them. Kind of like when a cheating husband or wife keeps trying to say that their spouse is cheating. The ones that claim that others are cheating are the ones who are usually doing it.
