Practically Speaking

No wonder Democrats don't mind raising taxes. They don't pay 'em!

Just for fun!, Politics, TAXES

In case you did not catch this one, from the land of Truth is stranger than fiction or You can't make this stuff up, another Obama Cabinet pick confirmation was stalled yesterday.

Why? Because of unpaid taxes! Tax snafus add up for Obama team:

The confirmation of another Cabinet member stalled Thursday because of unpaid taxes after USA TODAY disclosed that the husband of Labor secretary nominee Hilda Solis paid about $6,400 this week to settle numerous tax liens against his business dating to 1993.


Disclosure of the long-unpaid taxes prompted the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on Thursday to abruptly cancel a scheduled vote on Solis' nomination. The committee wants the administration to review the matter and report back, said Anthony Coley, spokesman for Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., the committee's chairman.

So I am beginning to understand why the Democrats* don't mind raising taxes--they don't bother to pay them! They of course expect the rest of us to pay up. 

*Legislators, Politicians, etc.
