Another Tax Evader joins the ranks in the Obama Administration?

http://www.reuters.com/article/marketsNews/idUSWBT01055020090202

U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday underscored his support for health secretary-designate Tom Daschle, despite tax errors that prompted Daschle to pay $140,000 in back taxes.

Did you know that if you applied to be a White House intern, you would most likely be turned down during the security clearance if you failed to pay your taxes?

What does this say for the Obama hand selected Administration?

  • These are the people Obama is placing in charge of determining the best use of our tax dollars. Does anyone else feel like he is trying to turn Washington into the same style of Corruptness as Chicago?

  • Transparency? Responsibility? Accountability?


    I don't think so.

  • Obama is a typical politician. They are all born liars.  Anyone who thinks Obama cares about us is a fool.  He is out for himself and those handlers who got him elected.   I am not shocked by this. I may stop paying my taxes. When the IRS comes after me I will explain I was using the Geithner/Daschle method for paying my taxes. lol

  • It seems heather that every time the man makes a wrong move ya'll consider it a non issue but if Bush tied his shoes wrong everyone went nuts!


    About the question..... It looks like Obama's spread the wealth point of view is OUR wealth not the people he hires. They can't even pay what they are supposed to pay, much less a little more to "help out the guy behind them"
