Fischer Tries To Mock Rep. Carol Shea-Porter And Fails Miserably
As we have noted several times before, self-awareness is not one of Bryan Fischer's strong suits and his cluelessness was on full display once again this afternoon when he attempted to mock Rep. Carol Shea-Porter for saying that the corporate tax rate in America was "just a suggestion."
The point that Shea-Porter was making was entirely accurate, as she was simply acknowledging that the effective tax rate actually paid by corporations is far lower than the set federal rate. In essence, the tax rate is "just a suggestion" because corporations don't really pay that.
But Fischer played a clip of Shea-Porter making this true statement and then mocked her for it, saying "tell that to Martha Stewart, tell that to Bernie Madoff, tell that to who knows how many people are in prison for treating the tax code as if it were just a suggestion."
Of course, Stewart went to prison for insider trading and Madoff went to prison for running a massive Ponzi scheme ... so any connection between these examples and the issue of corporate tax rates exists only in Fischer's "twisted mind":
