Putin’s First HUGE Mistake Oligarchs “Pay Your Taxes”
uh-oh… looks like Putin The Great has made his first huge and I mean HUGE mistake, calling on Russian Oligarchs to finally pay their taxes instead of stashing huge wads of tax-evading cash outside Russia.
This is going to go over like a load of bricks as Putin’s Russia is a very model of what our right wing Republican dream is to be… a non-tax-paying thug-ocracy where strong men bow to no one, most especially the tax man.
If Putin indeed is putting the Russian version of the IRS into action, look for a quick chopping off the head of Putin by the ruling Oligrarchs and Military Generals. But without taxes Oil revenue can only go so far in paying for any sort of military buildup as the EU looks to move away from energy dependency on Putin.
