Mike Tyson weighed in on taxes and Obamacare this morning on Fox News:

"I look forward to paying off my taxes and paying off my country, because that's my duty," said Tyson, who owes back taxes to the IRS. "I know that they say that's legal extortion, but, listen, I'm living in this country, and if I've got to pay taxes, that's the money I paid for my life on earth. My wife, my family, I got one of the biggest liberal families in the world, but I have the more money when Bush and Reagan was president. I shouldn't have said that -- my wife is gonna kill me for that one. But yeah--"

"Because Bush and Reagan had this idea that you should keep your money," said the Fox host.

"Yeah, I like that to work for me," said Tyson. "I like that one. I'm going to work on that too with this Obama administration. Just seeking this Obamacare helps us keep money."
