98,000 Federal employees owe back taxes to the tune of $1 Billion dollars
"WASHINGTON -- Attention, federal workers: Pay your taxes or lose your job.
That was the message sent Tuesday by the House, which approved the proposed Federal Employee Tax Accountability Act aimed at the estimated 98,000 federal workers who owed Uncle Sam about $1 billion in 2010." "The $1 billion in tax debt for 2010 increased from about $600 million in 2004. "
Are you really surprised to learn that Federal employees don't feel like paying their taxes? You nor I would escape the IRS's radar if we owed back taxes but it seems
Federal employees have been getting a free ride since 2004.
Not surprising when President Obama chose certain people to staff positions in his administration he chose those that you guessed it owed back taxes too...
Bill Richardson- Undisclosed tax issues
Hilda Solis-Tax liens
Then there is Max Baucus Democrat Montana yep owed back taxes too.
Let's not forget that Warren Buffet close personal friend of Obama and the model for the "Buffet Rule" owes $1 Billion in back taxes as well.
So it is not surprising when the worker bees don't feel the need to pay their taxes when those in charge don't either.
