In response to a tweet from Obama on his Twitter page last Thursday, saying, “I’ve cut taxes for those who need it: middle-class families, small businesses,” Lohan tweeted back on her Twitter page, “@BarackObama we also need to cut them for those that are listed on Forbes as ‘millionaires’ if they are not, you must consider that as well.”
However, Lohan did retweet some of Obama’s own tweets approvingly, according to Mediaite, including his stance against firing teachers and “kicking students off financial aid.”
Lohan has been in trouble with the Internal Revenue Service over her own taxes, and is facing tax liens on over $140,000 in unpaid taxes from 2009 and 2010 (see IRS Slaps Lindsay Lohan with Another Tax Lien).
She reportedly is set to earn over $2 million this year, according to TMZ, for playing Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime TV movie called "Liz and Dick," posing for Playboy, acting in the movies “The Canyons” and “Scary Movie 5,” appearing in a cameo on “Glee,” and modeling for Philipp Plein and Jag Jeans.
