A Tax Day question: Did our tax dodging Secretary of Treasury pay his taxes?
An article in today’s USA Today Newspaper caught my eye. The article, “Feds pounce on tax evaders, Prosecutions up 25% since 2001.” This immediately brought to mind the controversy surrounding President Barry Soetoro alias Barack Obama’s nomination and subsequent Congressional approval of federal tax payment avoider Timothy Geithner as Secretary of the US Treasury, which ironically oversees the nation's tax collection. Well, did he ever pay those taxes he owed? Did he pay his tax liability this year?
What a wonderful role model our President chose to lead the important federal department. What does that say about the credibility of the nominator as well as the nominee? Timothy “Do as I say, not as I do” Geithner was the best choice out of 300 million mostly people who do pay their taxes?
