Bummer. Claire "ACORN" McCaskill Caught In Obama's Tax Hike Scheme

The good news for big spending democrats is that Barack Obama proposed to raise taxes by $190 billion on businesses yesterday.
The bad news for big spending democrat Claire “ACORN” McCaskill is that she is one of the tax dodgers who will have to pay.
Missouri GOP reported:

Shifting blame to her husband and reversing her previous statements, Senator Claire McCaskill’s office responded yesterday allegations that she is avoiding U.S. taxes through her ownership of a Bermuda-based company. Through a spokesman, McCaskill’s office claimed in the Kansas City Star: “Like Warren Buffet, Claire’s husband has an investment in a reinsurance company in a foreign country that has never been a tax benefit to him nor will there ever be a tax benefit for this investment.”

McCaskill clearly distanced herself from the Bermuda-based business, placing blame squarely on her husband, the wealthy developer of low-income housing Joe Shepard. This separation stands in stark contrast to a 2004 McCaskill statement regarding her family’s finances, in which she claimed, “My husband and I are a team… We are married, and we share everything — assets, children and a house… Some have implied that the assets of my family don’t belong to me. That notion is pretty archaic.” (Post-Dispatch, July 18, 2004)

In addition, McCaskill continues to maintain that her Bermuda-based company does not exist to provide tax benefits. Of course, the only way to discern if she is telling the truth is for her to release her family’s tax returns. She has stubbornly refused to do so over the past five years.
