Limbaugh saves $1.5m a year with Bush tax cuts

No wonder he’s so opposed to Obama.

When conservative radio star Rush Limbaugh roots for President Barack Obama’s failure, he may be motivated by something other than ideology.

A new analysis by the Center for American Progress Action Fund finds that the current Bush tax system saves Rush Limbaugh over $1.5 million every year….

Limbaugh is paid approximately $38 million every year — more than 99.9 percent of American taxpayers. By cutting the rates for the top two income brackets Bush effectively saved Rush $1.5 million a year.
