Barack Hussein Obama signed yet another executive order on Friday that will require the President of the United States be a federal taxpayer.
The New Yorker reported that Obama said the bill, which makes a non-taxpayer ineligible to serve as President, is “long overdue.” It is set to go into effect immediately, just before Donald Trump takes office.
“Since the President has such a large say in how federal taxes are spent, it only makes sense that he or she contribute to those taxes, too,” Obama said, pointing out that every president has been a taxpayer.
Though this is happening right at the end of his presidency and just before Trump’s, Obama urged people “not to read too much into the timing” of his executive order.
“It just seemed like the right thing to do,” he said.
Yeah, right, Barry…
Many Republicans spoke out to slam Obama for signing the order, including House Speaker Paul Ryan.
“This is nothing less than an attack on the American dream of paying no taxes,” Ryan said.
Unfazed, Obama is reportedly planning other executive orders designed to make Trump’s presidency more difficult. These orders includes one that would require cabinet members to have held at least a summer job relevant to their posts.
