Serena Williams: I Don't Live in Paris Because of the New 75% Income Tax Rate

As NewsBusters reported in June, tennis star Serena Williams thinks France's top 75 percent income tax rate "doesn't seem legal."

On the CBS Late Show Thursday, Williams took her criticism further telling host David Letterman that although she loves the city and spends a great deal of her time there, "I don't live in Paris. You know, they have that new tax rule which is like 75" (video follows with commentary):

So Williams won't live in Paris because of the taxes, but she would have voted for the tax-hiking Barack Obama in 2008 if her religious beliefs didn't prevent her from participating in elections.

As I've said for years, it takes a lot of rationalizations to be a liberal these days.
