I think it was yesterday the articles started appearing online, and on my drive home there was a bit on NPR about it. I think one article I read had Marco Rubio piping in about how the tax laws are overly complicated and Olympians paying taxes on their winnings was just an example of how stupid they can be.
Maybe I'm just an ***... but what makes them so special that these winnings shouldn't be taxed? They work hard and represent our nation on the international scale. So do many Americans who do various other jobs. It just doesn't make sense to me that this one thing is being selected as an outrage in taxes.
