Kim Kardashian Targeted To Pay More Taxes

Kim Kardashian just can’t seem to escape criticism these days. The star of E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians is already being criticized for her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries and for wearing fur, and now The Courage Campaign, a CA-based online group pushing for progressive change in California and nationwide, is targeting Kim Kardashian to pay more in taxes.

The Courage Campaign has released a new one-minute online video that features Kim Kardashian living lavishly with jewels and furs and then makes the point that she only pays 1% more in taxes than a typical Californian making $47,000 per year. Kim Kardashian reportedly made more than $12 million in 2010.

The ad goes on to say ”Not everyone was born a Kardashian, but we all need to pay our fair share.”

The Courage Campaign is one of several groups backing a so-called millionaire’s tax that would raise income tax rates by 3 to 5 percent for individuals who make more than $1 million a year.

Kim Kardashian, along with her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, have turned their show Keeping Up With the Kardashians into a virtual empire, with spin-offs (Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami) to stores (D-A-S-H) to promotions for various products.

If The Courage Campaign is successful in getting the initiative they are backing on the ballot in November and it passes, it could raise as much as $6 billion to help fund services that have been hit hard during the recession, including public schools, programs for the elderly, and public safety.

    Throughout the course of history most people have had to render to Ceasar what is Caesar’s or face the IRS. Kim Kardashian should be no exception, especially if working people pay higher taxes than she does.

    Why should she pay more taxes? She earned the money. If she is paying what is required by law then that should be all she is expected to pay. This class warfare is a political idea created by Husseine Obama and his mafia cronies to put a wedge between the people of our country, and so he can try to look like a “Robinhood” type of hero. (That person is no hero!!!) OMG we need to get him out of our White House!

    The Courage Campaign need to mind there own business. Asking to pay more in taxes is crazy, they might as well ask every Californian to pay more in taxes. Why are they singling out Kim?
