Billionaire

Wherein NPR talk about how evil rich people are.

I think it’s interesting how we phrase taxation.  For example, if a person writes off their mortgage interest, we don’t call them a tax avoider.  We recognize that mortgage interest is a legal deduction, and the person is paying the tax they owe.

But if Donald Trump takes a legal write off for a failed business, suddenly he’s a “tax avoider.”
