Nobody forces W.B. to take all the income tax deductions that he profits from.

Nor did anyone force W.B. to place a major part of his wealth into an offshore tax shelter back in '07 or '08 (well before he started mouthing off with his hypocritical "the wealthy should pay more taxes" con/sales pitch).

This guy has yet to follow Christie's (and a lot of other people's) advice to put his "check book where is mouth is" in regard to donating some of his "tax sheltered" wealth to the IRS.

Meanwhile, didn't W.B. just make a fortune off of the taxpayer funded mortgage lending industry bailout?

Yup, he sure as shucks did...
