Golfer Phil Mickelson May Retire or Move After Democrats Pilfer 62% of His Income

It’s an Obama world.
Golfer Phil Mickelson told reporters he may retire or move after Democrats statewide and nationally moved to pilfer at least 62% of his income.
Forbes reported, via Free Republic:

Word is, Phil Mickelson is mad as hell about rising tax rates, and he’s not going to take it anymore. What follows is a brief portion of an interview Mickelson gave earlier today after carding a final-round 66 at the Palmer Course at PGA West in La Quinta – which I assure you, is not associated with the La Quinta next door to your local Denny’s – in which the golfer hinted that he is considering drastic career changes because of a combined tax rate nearing “62, 63 percent:”

Q. When you’re asked about Stricker’s semi-retirement, with the political situation the last couple months, blah, blah, blah, what did you mean by that? Do you find it an unsettling time in a way?

PHIL MICKELSON: Well, it’s been an interesting offseason. And I’m going to have to make some drastic changes. I’m not going to jump the gun and do it right away, but I will be making some drastic changes.

Q. Meaning leaving from California?

PHIL MICKELSON: I’m not sure.

Q. Moving to Canada?

PHIL MICKELSON: I’m not sure what exactly, you know, I’m going to do yet. I’ll probably talk about it more in depth next week.

    We’ll take him here in Texas. He can even carry his sidearm in his golf bag during play!

    What Obama and his team of moe-rons fail to realize is the ultra rich will protect their assets and possibly move to areas better suited for financial health.

    So, once again, it proves the middle class is the real intended target of his communism.

    Where is he going to go in the western nations that has a lower tax rate? UK, Australia, new Zealand, Canada etc? Good luck with that. He can take his citizenship and shove it. Move to Russia you frikin crybaby traitor. You make $$ from playing a game, not from REAL work.

    Falcon=== Yes sir the middle class is and always has been the target of Obama. You could confiscate 100% of the “rich” peoples money and not make a dent in the cost of government. The middle class, now you are talking a great number of people and money. People should stop and use their heads and do the math. Rush has explained this concept over and over again, you would think our elected officials would try to explain it also, but no, they just keep defending against liberal arguments with liberal speak.

    We will welcome u to Texas. Great weather most of the time!!! We have an ocean & lots of beautiful golf courses!!! One of them is in my back yard built by Tiger’s old coach!!!!

    So lincolns widow he should shut up and be raped by Obama! You are the problem. Do you realize that our government was formed WITHOUT the income tax, it wasn’t until the liberals got hold of the purse strings that taxation was imposed. They steal billions every year, and we pay for it. No better you leave this once great country you lousy scum. No one no matter how much they make should give more than half of their money to the government to be stolen by thieves and corruptocrats.

    lincoln’s widow commented:

    He lives in California. California is a basket case that just raised its income tax to the highest level in these United States. California also has very high sales and property taxes. A person with real income that is not tied to his location can move, and keep a lot of money by going to another state, right now.

    Phil: Here in Stricker’s home state, Wisconsin, our governor, Scott Walker, is making plans to lower taxes. You can winter in Florida, and make home here — and Stricker can show you all of our great golf tracks.

  • Jim Scrummy

    He needs to move to either Texas or Florida. Cali and Fed taxes are taking his cashish.

    Did phil ever think about how lucky he is to be in a country where he can make a fortune playing a game that he loves. Even if he actually does wind up paying 62%, he still will keep close to 20 million dollars a year. I make a tiny fraction of what he makes and, including all taxes, pay a fairly large percentage but am happy that I can make enough to live comfortably. When will enough be enough for these guys. And, in fact, this is a cheap political swipe since the new tax plan only adds about 4% to what he was already paying and that for only the amount over 250,000 after deductions (of which he must have many). Man up, pay your share for being given the opportunity to make a fortune.

    If I could afford it, I would gladly move to a lower tax area. To an Obamaite, you are a traitor if you don’t give them 60%+ of your income. And, since they never define ‘fair share’ this will keep going up. And it’s not like they use your confiscated money wisely. Of course, these concepts and tax rates don’t apply to Obamaites(Kerry, Kennedy, Geithner, the 48%, etc.)

    California, Illinois, and Connecticut, all morally, ethically, and financially bankrupt. Three perfect examples of how Democrat/Liberal policies will ruin our country. Even the little country of Belize can see we are headed for complete ruin. I hear Belize is advertising for Americans to move down there to protect their assets from the money grabbing, bankrupting Obama Administration.

    Alan #13…You just don’t get it…Raising taxes on the wealthy only causes them to tighten their purse strings…That means less money spent on goods and services provided by the middle class…Thereby taking away the opportunity for many to achieve their own ‘American Dream’…

  • pagar

    I don’t understand why anyone who could afford to move would live in any high tax state.
    Annie J at #15 has said it well.
    “California, Illinois, and Connecticut, all morally, ethically, and financially bankrupt. ”

    There is no sense in contributing to their disaster.

    Actually Canadian tax rates are very competitive with US ones in this higher brackets now.

    What most people fail to realise is that raising taxes on the rich is just the beginnig. The only way barrybathouse can pay for his programs and his man-like wife to travel the world is to raise taxes on everyone.
