Last night, radio host Mark Levin announced his “Levin Pre- Election Tax Proposal”, calling for a one year federal tax holiday for individuals earning $200,000 or less, and for joint and business returns with an income of $250,000 or less.
Levin was speaking after President Obama proposed yesterday to extend the Bush tax cuts for those earning $250,000 or less, but not for those earning over that amount:
“See folks, I can come up with a plan, too. Here’s one, you want to hear it? Because we can all play this game. Here’s the ‘Levin Pre- Election Tax Proposal.’
“A one year tax holiday from all federal taxes of any kind- income, payroll, capital gains, death - you name it. Excuse me, I’m all choked up. For all tax filers, with adjusted gross incomes of $200,000 or less, and all joint and business returns with adjusted gross incomes of $250,000 or less. And the status quo will apply to all filers earning above these thresholds.
“So, anybody earning above the threshold - individuals, families, businesses - you live under the Bush tax cuts. The rest of us - we pay nothing!”
