Phil Mickelson Sounds Off On Paying Higher Taxes, Says He'll Make "Drastic Changes"
Published January 21, 2013
LOSING HIS EVERYMAN APPEAL? Golf Channel’s Damon Hack said of Mickelson's comments, “I don’t know what Phil’s doing, bringing his laundry from his home. Have this conversation with your family and if you have to move, that’s fine. I don’t think people, Phil’s fans, the public, people that are struggling to pay rent, are worried about a millionaire’s problems.” Golf Channel’s Matt Ginella added, “He is the guy that seems so connected with the common man, and when saying these things like he said seems really disconnected from the common man” (“Morning Drive,” Golf Channel, 1/21). Golf writer Steve Elling wrote on his Twitter feed, "Mickelson will show up at Torrey with rehearsed, researched taxation spiel, but most folks feel no sympathy. He's risking serious skewering."
