Remember Mr. Biden saying it was our patriotic duty to pay taxes during the Democratic Presidental Nominations? It seems not all Democrats are patriotic.
So Rangel can dodge taxes, along with most of Obama’s administration for years with little to no penalty, try doing that yourself and you will end up with garnished wages or in jail. Now what is bad is they are proposing to raise taxes while they fail to pay their own. I think its time to use the politicans for new revenue, investigate and aduit all politicans and it seems, from recent history, you can find hundreds of millions! The Obama administration is alone responsible for tens of thoushands to a hundred thousand dollars of more of back taxes not paid for years. Our leaders need to stop asking us to do what they refuse to do and they need to be held accountable to the same laws we do! The IRS is for all citizens, taxes are for all citizens, and responsibility/accountability is for all citizens. Leading by example is more then a catchy slogan or campaign sound bite. Its time we hold them ALL accountable!
WSJ led 2009 articles that highlight despite months of time Rangel still hasn’t paid his taxes!
From September 2008, not a new news item as the below shows
Mr. Rangel soon admitted having failed to report rental income of $75,000 over the years. First he blamed his wife for the oversight because he said she was supposed to be managing the property. Then he blamed the language barrier. “Every time I thought I was getting somewhere, they’d start speaking Spanish,” Mr. Rangel explained.
