Christine Lagarde, the IMF boss who caused international outrage after she suggested in an interview with the Guardian on Friday that beleaguered Greeks might do well to pay their taxes, pays no taxes, it has emerged. As an official of an international institution, her salary of $467,940 (£298,675) a year plus $83,760 additional allowance a year is not subject to any taxes. Lagarde, 56, receives a pay and benefits package worth more than American president Barack Obama earns from the United States government, and he pays taxes on it. According to Lagarde's contract she is also entitled to a pay rise on 1 July every year during her five-year contract. Other benefits include rent subsidies, dependency allowances for spouses and children, education grants for school-age children and travel and shipping expenses, as well as subsidised medical insurance. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2012/may/29/christine-lagarde-pays-no-tax The permo-oranged tranny gets the hypocrite of the year award for 2012. Especially as she was supposed to be sorting out the euro crisis which she has obviously fucked up but got a convenient escape route via the IMF because of DSK indiscretion in NY. She gets all these perks from the taxpayer so it seems only fair to step up to the mark, show some leadership and pay your share. Useless,hypocritical and bigoted .. good combination.
