Lindsay Lohan encourages Barack Obama to slash taxes for Forbes millionaires


In a tweet fired off on Friday, Lindsay Lohan encouraged President Barack Obama to consider lowering taxes for the one-percenters listed on the Forbes Magazine millionaires’ list.

Lindsay Lohan, 26, who has been very active on Twitter recently, was responding to a message posted by the Obama campaign following his Thursday speech at the Democratic National Convention.

“I’ve cut taxes for those who need it: middle-class families, small businesses,” the tweet read.

About 10 minutes later, Lindsay Lohan of the upcoming Elizabeth Taylor biopic Liz and Dick put in her two cents on the issue of tax cuts: “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.”

LiLo retweeted several more quotes from Barack Obama’s speech including: “I don’t believe that firing teachers or kicking students off financial aid will grow the economy.”

She also forwarded a plea by the Obama campaign to join the president “if you want to keep moving forward” and a link leading to Barack Obama’s re-election website.

So far, President Barack Obama has not responded to Lindsay Lohan’s economic policy proposal, and she has since removed the tweet off her page after facing a barrage of ridicule online.

While it is not entirely clear what Lindsay Lohan had in mind when she fired off the message to her 4,240,930 followers, it is assumed that she considers herself to be among the Forbes millionaires in question.


LiLo, known for her out-of-control shopping sprees and addiction problems, had an estimated net worth of $2 million last year.

Just recently, however, Lindsay Lohan made headlines after being banned from the luxurious Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles for failing to pay over $46,000 in fees.
