Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson told "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade this morning that he hoped to save money with Obamacare and was "looking forward" to paying off back taxes with his auto-biographical one-man show (video below).
"Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" has been touring the country since February and will continue through May, according to the show's website.
“I’m so proud to be in this,” said Tyson. “I look forward to paying off my taxes and paying off my country, because that’s my duty. I know they say that’s legal extortion, but listen, I’m living in this country and if I got to pay taxes, that’s the money that I paid for my life on Earth.”
“I’ve got the biggest liberal family in the world, but I had the more money when Bush and Reagan was president! Oh I shouldn’t, my wife’s going to kill me for that.”
Kilmeade then countered: “Bush and Reagan had this idea that you should keep your money,” without mentioning that President Reagan raised taxes 11 times during his presidency. President George H.W. Bush also raised taxes, breaking his famous "read my lips" promise.
“Yeah, I’d like that to work for me. I’m going to work on that one to with this Obama administration, see [if] this Obamacare [can] help us keep some money," said Tyson.
