Iowa GOP Congressional Candidate Doubts Whether Obama 'Loves This Country' Because Of Buffett Rule Support

Via: Think Progress
A Republican congressional candidate in Iowa told a Tea Party audience yesterday that President Obama does not love his country because he supports raising taxes on millionaires.
Dan Dolan, one of three GOPers running to take on Rep. Dave Loebsack (D-IA) in Iowa’s second congressional district, made the comments on Thursday at a Tea Party meeting in Lamoni. After distorting how much revenue the proposed Buffett Rule, which raises taxes on millionaires, would bring in, Dolan used the president’s support for the measure as evidence that he is unpatriotic. “I have a hard time thinking that he loves this country if he’s willing to turn them against themselves for his own advancement,” Dolan declared.
It’s amazing that anyone would complain about raising the tax rates for the wealthy when they are now paying such historically low taxes. It seems that some GOPers are either blind or just prefer to lie.
