The real 47 percent: GOP candidate with a Ferrari pays no federal income taxes for third year

A wealthy Republican candidate who owns a vintage Ferrari and a fighter jet effectively paid no federal income tax for the third year in a row.

Investor Thomas C. Foley hopes to defeat Connecticut’s Democratic governor, Dannel P. Malloy, in the upcoming Nov. 4 election. His campaign released summaries of the candidate’s 2013 federal income tax returns to reporters on Friday, and both the New York Times and the Hartford Courant noted his total federal tax liability was just $673.

“The campaign released his 2010, 2011 and 2012 tax summaries last month; 2013 was the third year in a row that Mr. Foley effectively paid no federal income tax,” the Times reported.

Foley spent $11 million of his own money seeking to become governor of Connecticut in 2010, and the Malloy campaign has been eager to point out Foley’s lavish lifestyle.

1. Frankly, these type of attacks against...

Foley are getting tiresome.

I don't like the guy. I'm not going to vote for him. But I don't give a damn if he's rich. I won't fault him for spending his money, or having good accountants and lawyers.

I dislike him because his policies will be bad for the people and state of Connecticut.

And to be honest, if I had his wealth, I'd buy myself a yacht as well...and maybe a trainer jet also, if I had a few million to spare.
