I was just listening to Mark Levin on the radio. Apparently 41 white house aids owe over 800,000 dollars in back taxes. I don't know if this is a grand total or if each of them is this far in the red. What is it with democrats and taxes? They always complain that the rich don't pay their fair share. Is this the psychological malady called projection, where you put onto other people your failings? I mean Tim Geitner, Tom Dashle, Charles Rangle, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry... the list goes on and on. They love raising those taxes and then they hide their own money.

Bill, don't even try to act like the republicans haven't done the same thing. They are just as bad and you know it.

Randy Duke Cunningham; pled guilty to tax evasion

James A. Ortenzio; GOP leader of Manhattan; admitted tax cheating (media called it "evasion") 11/15/2007 http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/11/15/manhattan-... /

Robert Beale; founder of Minnesota Christian Coalition, delegate to national Republican convention; reported in Minneapolis Star-Tribune in August 2006; World Nut Daily defends: http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=32878
(did not file federal or state tax returns for four years, even though he received at least $5,696,574 in income between Jan. 1, 2000, and about September 2004.)

Samuel J. Wurzelbacher owes the state of Ohio $ 1,200.00 in back taxes for his income. http://politicolnews.blogspot.com/2008/10/joe-plumber-t...

Robert Stears; http://www1.phillyburbs.com/pb-dyn/news/112-03012008-14...

http://www.republicanoffenders.com/Bribery2.html

So get off your high horse, hypocrite.

Here's a couple of excerpts from the original Washington Post article:

Quote:
An agency-by-agency breakdown of IRS debt is not published but is available in a redacted form from the agency upon request. Along with the Capitol Hill totals, it shows that three employees at the Office of Government Ethics owed a combined $75,000. And 41 employees at the Executive Office of the President owed $831,000 altogether - about the same amount as during the last year of George W. Bush's administration.

Quote:
On Capitol Hill, recent increases in delinquencies also may reflect the unusual nature of the workforce, which turns over dramatically when a new political party comes into power.

From 2004 through 2006, the last three years that Republicans were in power, the total amount of back taxes owed each year by congressional workers hovered just below $9 million. But in 2007, when Democrats took control of both houses, it dropped to $6.8 million. Since then, it has increased by 37 percent.

Jock Friedly, who publicizes congressional salaries on the Web site LegiStorm, said many new staffers come from the private sector, where they worked as lobbyists or in other higher-paying jobs. "They go to a somewhat lower-paying government job and then, over time, debt starts to build up," Friedly said.

During 2008 and 2009 - when the financial crisis took hold and the economy started sinking - the Senate debt increased 80 percent and the House debt increased 25 percent.

And a graph from the same article showing the total amount of federal taxes owed by congressional staff over a five year period, beginning with 2004:

So, if you have time for Levin, spend it on a great political thinker!

I don't pretend that the republicans don't do it, they are politicians after all. However, they don't go around denouncing anyone who wants to keep their money as "not paying their fair share" and they at least end up most of the time on the side that wants to lower everyones taxes. The democrats are constantly calling people greedy, Biden said that it is patriotic to pay taxes. The Obamas keep telling the young people of today to not go into jobs that pay a lot of money, instead they should give back to the community. This of course is not what they did when Michelle got the 350,000 dollar a year job denying poor people admittance to the hospital she worked at. A job they got rid of when Barack and Michelle went to washington. The hypocrites are the democrats. An excellent book on this topic is "Do as I say" which chronicles this type of democrat hypocrisy. They all call rich people greedy and then shelter all of their money from confiscatory taxation. I think it is Pelosi, or Boxer that owns wineries and bed and breakfast places. They fight to unionize their own states and then deny their employees, who work in other states, the right to unionize. So please, the democrats are the hypocrites here, the republicans are just being politicians. Tim Geitner and Charles wrangle are tax cheats, you have another democrat giving grants to her family members. If you are going to raise taxes on everything up to and including taxing the air we breath, please, pay "your fair share of the taxes you are raising."

You know what, you point to the republicans who are tax cheats and I point to democrats who are bigger tax cheats. Which one of us has the right view point. I want everyone to pay less taxes if for no other reason the "blanking" politicians are the ones who recieve the most benefits from our tax money and they don't pay their taxes. Too many on your side want people to pay more taxes to use the money to help people even knowing that 90 percent of the money will not be spent to "help people" but will in fact be used to buy votes, reward their freinds and campaign contributers and line their own pockets. The money that does sometimes help people, about half will be lost to fraud and waste. I repeat my concept, if I give someone 20 dollars to buy a loaf of bread, and they come back with just a pound of candy, no change and they tell you that you owe the store another ten dollars, because they started a tab in your name, would you ever give them another penny of your money. You apparently would. Taxes need to be lowered, people need to keep the money they earn and put it to good uses according to their needs, wants and desires and not the needs of criminals in elected office who are too lazy to pick up a gun and steal money the old fashioned way. Stop feeding the disease.

The washington post, Sunday sept. 12 2010 has a great article on conservatism and the false claims of racism the left throws against it. The article is by Gerard Alexander.
