Evil, Greedy 1%er, Barack Obama, Pays Less In Taxes Than His Poor Working Class Secretary...

[T]he most recent information about salary regarding Obama’s secretary is for his former secretary, Katie Johnson, who is listed by the White House as having made $90,000 in 2010.

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, but if we assume she has two children like the Obamas, her taxable income would be about 73,000, her federal taxes would amount to about $14,000, and her Social Security taxes would be about $5,000.

That adds up to a total federal tax burden of $19,000 on $90,000 in adjusted gross income, or a tax rate of 21 percent, just above Obama’s rate of 20.5 percent.
