RICH GUY STEVE LOPEZ IS HAPPY TO PAY HIS TAXES

Steve Lopez says Arnold should quadruple the car tax. I agree with one of his points: that if the car tax is reduced, some other way must be found to fund local police and fire departments, and other public safety agencies. But I have to admit I chuckled when I read Lopez’s line: “Excuse me, but I’m happy to pay my car tax.”

Of course he is. Why wouldn’t he be? Lopez gets paid $300,000 a year to write three columns a week — and thinks it’s hilarious that you, the average citizen, are excited about saving an average of $140 on your auto registration.

There sure are a lot of rich liberals who mouth off about how happy they are to pay their taxes, and how they wouldn’t mind paying even more. I wonder how many of these folks donate a few extra thousand to the IRS every year — just because they wouldn’t mind.
