Must Read - Obama's Den of Tax Cheats

Hot stuff by Eric Kohn today at Illinois Review: The pathetic episodes of Tim Geithner, Tom Daschle, Rep. Charles Rangel, Nancy Killefer and their respective tax cheating should have everyone furious. What's remarkable here is not only that all of these instances have occurred recently and are - with the exception of Rangel - all by supposedly vetted nominations made by President Obama, but that the roles each does or would have played in the government represent a full circle on the ethos of taxation, tax policy and use of tax dollars. Full Plate of Scandals... Is a bunch of entrenched tax cheats surrounding Barack Obama part of the "change" we were promised? Or is it just a little something extra tossed our way? Remember when Joe Biden reminded us all that paying taxes is patriotic? Uh huh. CNB RSS Feed
