A TAX-FREE SHUT­DOWN?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

For­mer Min­nesota Gov. Jesse Ven­tura, who has been toy­ing with a White House run him­self, won­ders why Amer­i­cans should have to pay taxes dur­ing the fed­eral gov­ern­ment shut­down.

“Here’s my big ques­tion. Since the gov­ern­ment shut down, let’s keep track of the num­ber of days we shouldn’t have to pay taxes,” Mr. Ven­tura told Larry King - now host of “Pol­i­tick­ing with Larry King” on RT

“If they shut the gov­ern­ment down, we should lose our tax obli­ga­tion, be­cause what are we pay­ing for then?” Mr. Ven­tura de­clares. The for­mer prowrestler also gave insight about his own pres­i­den­tial cam­paign.

“If I run, I will of­fer the peo­ple of the United States the first op­por­tu­nity to elect a pres­i­dent who does not be­long to a po­lit­i­cal party since Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton. He is our only pres­i­dent who did not be­long to a po­lit­i­cal party at all, and this will give the Amer­i­can peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to make his­tory again,” Mr. Ven­tura adds.

“And we used to have mul­ti­ple par­ties; we had the Whig, the Fed­er­al­ist,” Mr. King be­gan.
