    Maybe we should demand a tax on Obama for every lie he tells. We could balance the budget in approximately 30 days.

    Where did this stippen come from??? If they take it wouldn't they be considered professional??? I grew up watching the olympics tell everyone what amatures they were until they brought in the NBA to play. Are they allowed to play in 4 years if they spend any of these winnings as in what happened to Ohio State this year??? Is the state allowed to train their athletes??? Stranger than truth.

    Those medals SHOULD be tax-free, but considering that Obummer's whole mission is to make Amerika unremarkable, just another third-world country, of COURSE he's going to punish them.

    It takes a lot of investment in time and money for an athlete to reach the Olympics. Their parents and families sacrafice to get them there. They should not be taxed. I think those who are actually professional athletes and already making millions should have to pay taxes, but not the students and amateurs.

    The medals are free. There are prize winnings attached to the medals that are taxable. They haven't paid much for their grooming and training so I don't see why they cannot pay a little tax. They will have endorsements that make them very rich.

    done....they pay a third. that is what anyone and everyone pays in America if you 'win' something. go on a game show. so now we want to exempt these ppl. okay. where does it stop? just like Obamacare...almost all of Pelosi's district applied for and received exemptions and that list goes on. but the rest of us peons can pay, right? is that fair? forgiving the medal tax sounds good but then why do you and i have to pay for our winnings?
    win a car sometime. you don't get the car. unless you have the money to pay the tax on it. that's thousands so yu take the money because, basically, yu cannot afford to win.

    NOW HEAR THIS: They are not taxed on the value of the medals. They are just like anyone else who wins prize money. The money is added to that year's income and they get taxed on the income. Don't we all pay taxes on money no matter how we came by it. Unless you are super rich then you can hide it, defer taxes, claim exemptions and so on.

    When one thinks of the Olympics Chariots of Fire comes to mind ... blood, sweat, and tears of everyday men and women. But reality tells another story. The dons who run the Olympics have let professionals compete for more than 40 years. As a result, many of those who would benefit from this tax cut are as far from amateurs as one could imagine. LeBron James, for instance, made $57 million last year in salary and endorsements. Kobe Bryant made $52 million. Michael Phelps made $10 million. Does BronBron really need an $8,700 tax cut? Does Serena Williams? Seriously? As Gabby Douglas is about to learn, a gold medal and a nice smile is worth untold mega bucks on Madison Ave.

    So Rubio wants to enact a bill that affects about 60 people, while millions are jobless, homeless and worse. And Obama agrees with Rubio. Congress can't get a jobs bill passed, but they can pass a bill giving free money to professional athletes. Priorities in this country are screwed up .Love it when our politicians tackle the hard hitting issues of the day.

    They work their whole lives to get into the Olympics. They don't live normal lives and give up so much already. Thy are super dedicated to everything they do. If they win a medal for their country they should not be taxed. They are there representing and making the united states proud. This is probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of.

    I would much, MUCH prefer to see our military tax free....they are NOT tax-free, regardless what anyone claims....they pay at the same rate as we do in the civilian world. Olympians.....these athletes make money aplenty after all is said and done. Michael Phelps net worth is between $30 and 40 million. Gabby Douglass will be roughly $1-4 million for starters....no telling what she will be long-haul. The list goes on...

    And by saying all of this, I, by no means, like increased taxes but I'm not so far out there that I think they are unnecessary. But for athletes? No. They are athletes...period. Too much is put into people like them. They get fame, endorsements, free merchandise, tax breaks out the wazoo...

    Military and all federal employees. Just think how much paperwork could be eliminated. Plus, the payrolls could be reduced to allow for the reduction in tax load. On top of that, it would jerk the Congress and President back into reality to know where the wealth of this country really originates.

    The US has always taxed winnings from all over the world, including Olympic Medals.

    Why should that change now?
