Consider that in California, millionaires on top of the 39.6 percent they'll pay to the federal government in 2013, there's an additional 14.63 percent that now goes to the state.
Add in payroll taxes, local taxes, and property taxes, and I've seen estimates that the total tax bite could exceed 60 percent here.
But the rich aren't paying their "fair share."
Regardless, it sure was nice to see a liberal - especially one that contributed to Obama's reelection campaign! - complaining about his taxes.

I think there's a point at which even a dyed in the wool hard left Liberal pays enough. Case in point. Bill Maher is on the point of jumping ship. He's paying 60% of his income in taxes living in California.
