Liberal Rep Charlie Rangel (D-NY) On His Past Tax Problems: ‘Tax Code Is Too Damn Complicated’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Democratic Congressman Charlie Rangel appeared on 'Follow The Money' and host Eric Bolling asked him about his “well-documented tax problems” and why that alone isn’t proof that Americans are being “taxed to death?” Rangel laughed and humorously repeated that the “tax code is too damn complicated.”

Charlie Rangel: “When you are the biggest, most beautiful nation in the entire world, the best universities, the highest caliber of healthcare, the most powerful military nation in the world – these things cost money – roads, airports, tunnels. The only thing we should be discussing is if the tax code is fair.”
