Paying Taxes.. Not us.. says Government Employees

S. Lindsey's picture

The IRS reported that 276,300 current and retired federal employees owed $3,042,200,000 in 2008, down from $3,586,784,725 in unpaid taxes in 2007.

Fifty White House staffers owed a combined $812,917 in 2008, the IRS said. Up on Capitol Hill, slightly more than 4 percent of House staffers owed Uncle Sam $5.8 million, compared to 3.2 percent of Senate employees that owed almost $2.5 million.

Why is it when we are struggling everyday to pay bills, debts and tax liabilities Government employees seem able to skate by without paying.

When we have to pay our "fair share" it seems like the elite amoung us never do.

We have to hold "OUR" Government accountable. We have allowed them to get out of control. This isn't a Left vs. Right issue it's a Up vs. Down issue.
