The Rich Need To Pay Their Share

Just not rich aids of Obama...

A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama’s executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven’t paid any share, let alone their fair share.
Taxes are for the little people, like me evidently.
Update from Maggie's, it seems our Senators and Congressmen don't like paying taxes either!

Boot them out! Then let's tax the poor! I'm serious ... that will give them an interest in what's being done in their name in Washington.

1. This news comes as a shock to exactly who? There have been so many dead beat tax cheats in the Obama administration, a person has to have a "program" to tell the "players" apart.

2. Obama's attack on the rich is just a cover to increase taxes on everyone. He knows that taxing the rich would/could not make a dent in the deficit or national debt, but increasing taxes on the middle class could increase revenues for additional government spending.

3. People of wealth will always have means to find tax code loopholes to mitigate increases in their marginal tax rate.

4. The tax code is so voluminous that there is no way to tweak it around the margins to make it fair for anyone.

5. Consider the tax cheat politicians who can change the tax code. Their self interest is evident. They will only make changes that do not interfere with their campaign revenue sources.
