Kim Kardashian Kalled Out by Kalifornia Tax Proponents

by at . Comments

Kim Kardashian is threatening to take over the 2012 political campaign season.

First, Mitt Romney referenced the reality star's failed marriage in a recent diss of President Obama. Now, an organization of California citizens who are pushing for an initiative in their home state that would raise taxes on millionaire by three to five percent are using Kardashian in an ad.

“Not everyone was born a Kardashian, but we all need to pay our fair share,” the spot says, noting that Kim banked $12 million in 2010... but paid just one percent more in taxes than a worker who made $47,000.

The Courage Campaign and the California Federation of Teachers are teaming up to raise around $6 billion for public schools and local services through this income tax hike. They hope to get it on the November ballot.

“Don’t you think she could pay a little more?” the ad asks of Kim, as images of children, firefighters and an elderly woman flash on screen. “Especially to fund education and critical services?”

Do you think Kim Kardashian should pay more taxes?

Sarah, no. First off, that is not nearly hard work compared to what normal working people do and yet they make WAY less than her. Second of all, normal people pay a certain amount of taxes based off what they make..so the more you make the more taxes taken out. So tell me why should normal people have to pay out the amount based on what they make but yet she pays only 1 percent more than a normal person but makes a hell of alot more. She needs to pay like any normal person does. That is completely wrong that our money is taken in taxes but she is doesnt pay barely anything. If she did it would be a hell of alot more than just 1 percent more than a normal person.
