Well you knew it had to happen sooner or later. Some of you have already suggested it and I can’t say its a bad idea.
Have you paid your taxes lately? If you said
“yes” then you are in good company. Millions of Americans not only
struggle with the duty of following a convoluted tax code, but they
sweat out the approaching tax deadline. We live in fear of the IRS,
bringing in experts to ensure we comply with federal law and do it in a
way that won’t come back to haunt us.
But we’re not seeing the same concern from our leaders. In fact, it
seems all too common that national leaders are not only tax scofflaws,
but even when their tax evasion is exposed, there are few
consequences. They certainly appear to cheat, yet still get plum jobs
and perks of high office.
Seems there are a long list of those "above the law" for a President who says "no one is above the law." Not only do they seem to take a powder on the taxes, breaking the law seems to get them a ticket into office. I wonder, sometimes, if I am the only one who hears the doublespeak.
Congress should apply to themselves all of the limitations they are trying to put on businessmen, starting with Pelosi's 747.
Paying taxes, giving to charity, playing by the rules, telling the truth, not acting like deviants, and just not being total hypocrites are all abilities that seem to be beyond most politicians, and are particularly well developed deficiencies in Obama appointees.
Audit them, audit them again, and then perp walk them out of office, either by voting them out or term limiting them.
Maybe a nice term limited stay in a federal prison for Dodd might set an example….
