Obama and Taxes: I Guess Only The Little People Pay Taxes

Posted by revkharma on February 3, 2009

Sunday on ABC “this week” Sen. Jim DeMint from South Carolina had this insight:

I mean, people are struggling to pay taxes on a very small amount of income. And when he’s got this huge amount of — you know, I can see now why liberals don’t mind if the tax rate goes up, because they’re not going to pay it anyway.

Even better, and less reported was his follow up statement:

But we need to look at it. And I would just — I wish they would just say, “Hey, our tax code is just incomprehensible. We need to change it.”

With just a few very short words Senator DeMint has found not one, but two pearls of great price. Look at the Great and Powerful Obama, and his administration. Treasury Secretary committed tax fraud, admitted it, and still was appointed. HHS nominee finally was forced to withdraw when it became apparent that some senators actually can feel shame. It still seems, that even after having crowed that once he realized that he owed the taxes they were paid, he apparently has still NOT paid the FICA taxes due on the value of his limo and driver.  Obama has also had his “performance czar’ withdraw over HER failure to pay taxes.  Bill Richardson, from New Mexico has already withdrawn from his cabinet nomination, for financial irregularities.  Charlie Rangel, chairman of the House Ways and Means committee, is also a tax cheat, in addition to having several different rent controlled apartments in NYC for business use. That arrangement violates so many laws I can’t even count them.

So, here we have Obama, once more pledging ( as did the ‘honorable and ethical’ William Clinton) to have a more ethical administration than in many years. His cabinet is rotten with tax cheats and dishonest politicians of all sorts. Yet he lectures and cajoles others on their moral imperatives.

Oh, one more… remember when he said that Americans couldn’t heat their homes the way they want?

We can’t drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times, whether we’re living in the desert or we’re living in the tundra,

turns out that this applies to everyone except him. Michelle Malkin reports the following:

The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.

“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

Dishonest, deceptive, and sure to be destructive.  We need to work to stop Obama and his administration. Now is the time, don’t let him get momentum!

As always

Keep the Faith
