Why do Democrats Like Taxes? Because They don't Pay Them!

I know, it's an old joke, but it keeps coming back around...

We know most Democrat voters pay no taxes, but it appears that the same can be said of the Democrats they vote for. 

Another year, another gang of tax cheats in Obama's administration and the Democrat-controlled congress have made the headlines.   Well...  actually, the back pages.  Only Republican malefactors make headines.  Anyway, ace reporter T.W. Farnum of the Washington Post found the following...

41 White House Tax Cheats
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.
638 Congressional Tax Cheats
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.

Over at the Justice Department, which is so busy enforcing other laws and suing Arizona, 1,971 employees still owe $14,350,152 in overdue taxes.

Then, we come to the Department of Homeland Security, which is run by Janet Napolitano, the former governor of Arizona who preferred to call terrorist acts "man-caused disasters." Homeland Security is keeping all of us safe by ensuring that a Dutch tourist is aboard every inbound international flight to thwart any would-be bomber with explosives in his underpants.

Within that department, there reside 4,856 people who owe the tax agency a whopping total of $37,012,174.

And they're checking our pockets for metal and coins?
This is a corrupt, decadent government that not only steals our freedoms, but steals our money as well.

Always known but seeing the figures is disgusting, the f@#king hypocrites.

What happened to "pating taxes is patriotic"?

OK for me but not for thee, that is the progressive motto

It applies to enviro sins as well

I get the distinct feeling that cheating on taxes is probably a bipartisan, and nonpartisan, ubiquitous civil sin. But I suppose it is true that when Remocrats cheat on their taxes it's a little more hypocritical than when Republcians do it. Of course, admitting that means admitting that Republicans are naturally more corrupt than Democrats, so I don't know what you're so happy to point out about this.


Silverfiddle said...

While your opinion is a reasonable conjecture, Jersey, the story doesn't say that.

Is says the democrats aren't paying their "fair share."

I think it is hilarious.

Just like Universal Healthcare won't apply to them.
