War on Women: Obama’s Secretary Probably Paid a Higher Tax Rate Than He Did

The always intrepid Keith Koffler drops the bomb.

According to Wikipedia, Johnson is 31 years old and now attends Harvard Law School. I don’t know about her personal life or what her deductions would be, so I can’t assume any children or deductions.

On a $90,000 salary, she would pay $16,578 in federal taxes, $3,780 to Social Security, and $1,305 in Medicare taxes.

That adds up to a total federal tax burden of $21,663 on $90,000 in adjusted gross income, or a tax rate of 24 percent, well above Obama’s rate of 20.5 percent, even though Obama’s 2011 salary was nearly nine times the 2010 salary of his secretary.

Oops. An Obama Rule, anyone?

Maybe someone should ask Jay Carney, although he probably knows a lot of people named Johnson.

Speaking of the Democrats and their He-Man’s Women Haters Club, the Soros flying monkeys have a bit of an equal pay problem of their own.
