Someone Should Ask Obama Why His Employees Won’t Pay Their Taxes

Really, though, is anyone truly surprised by this information?

The Post’s T.W. Farnum did some research and found that out of the total sum, just 638 workers on Capitol Hill owe the IRS $9.3 million in back taxes. As in, overdue. The IRS gets stiffed by the legislative body that controls its budget. How Washington works.

Privacy laws prevent release of individual tax delinquents’ names. But we do know that as of the end of 2009, 41 people inside Obama’s very own White House owe the government they’re allegedly running a total of $831,055 in back taxes. That would cover a lot of special chocolate desserts in the White House Mess.

In the House of Representatives, 421 people owe a total $6,524,892. In the Senate, 217 owe $2,774,836. In the IRS’ parent department, Treasury, 1,204 owe $7,670,814. At the Labor Department, where Secretary Hilda Solis’ husband had some back-tax problems before her confirmation, 463 owe $7,481,463. Eighty-one workers for the Federal Reserve System’s board of governors owe $1,076,733.

And the list continues, on to the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security. Is it fair to blame Obama? Not fully. He has certainly contributed to the problem by nominating people who have tax problems. This is more about the entitlement mentality for those who work in the Federal government, especially in the White House and on Capital Hill.

    Back in the mid-70s, I had a temporary job adjudicating compensation claims for the Federal government’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs. At that time, the folk-wisdom was that the employee category that had the highest rate of claims was compensation claims examiners. It isn’t just the taxes.

    There are 217 Senators? Our problems are worse than I thought.

  6. […] The rest is exactly the continuation of a hit piece that you expect. Interestingly, nowhere can anything that is illegal be found. They do mention some tax problems, probably not a good idea considering the number of Obama appointees, Congress persons (especially Democrat ones), and their staffers who have tax problems. […]
