Found this fantastic article in the Investor’s Business Daily that I had to share with you guys. It was written by Andrew Malcolm titled "36 Obama aides owe $833,000 in back taxes". I guess you cannot fault him for what his aides do with respect to their taxes…
But if he is going to run on everybody paying their fair share then why are so many of his aides delinquent on debt to the IRS? And why is he not calling them out on it? Why are their wages not being forfeited? Why are they not fired?
Malcolm humorously calls the President, "Mr. Fair Share" haha.
More revealing than just the aides that owe money, federal employees as a whole are also delinquent.
An awful lot of folks being paid by taxpayers are not paying their own income taxes. The report finds that thousands of federal employees owe the country more than $3.4 billion in back taxes. That’s up 3% in the past year.
Here is a tabular form of the data showing how many taxes are owed by the staffers by government agency.
|Agency||# Employees||Taxes Owed|
|Veterans Affairs||11,659||151 Million|
|Active Military||100 Million|
|Homeland Security||4,697||37 Million|
|Department of Justice||2,069||17 Million|
|Treasury Dept||1,181||9.3 Million|
|House of Representatives||8.5 Million|
|Energy Dept||322||5 Million|
|Dept of Education||4.3 Million|
|US Senate||2.1 Million|
While the average tax owed by delinquent USPS employee is only $450, the delinquent Obama staff owe an average of $23K!! That is six months worth of household income for the common household! This is an embarrassment.
