Witness the amazing truth stretching antics of the Michael Moore.
And notice how Moore delves into his typical labyrinthine word-smithing: He says that the supposed 10% French income tax “pays for everything,” and that each thing that that 10% pays for is itemized on a Frenchman’s paycheck.

I’m left scratching my head — does the supposed 10% French income tax “pay for everything” … or are there “these other taxes” as well? It’s pretty obvious it’s the latter (since there’s that French 19.6% VAT in addition to income taxes) but when it comes to Moore playing it straight, well that’s quite a bit to ask now, isn’t it?
