Some names would be nice. For instance, is Turbo Tax Tim the Treasury Secretary still a tax cheat?

A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama’s executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven’t paid any share, let alone their fair share.

Previous reports have shown how well-paid Obama’s White House staff is, with 457 aides pulling down more than $37 million last year. That’s up seven workers and nearly $4 million from the Bush administration’s last year.

Nearly one-third of Obama’s aides make more than $100,000 with 21 being paid the top White House salary of $172,200, each.

The IRS’ 2010 delinquent tax revelations come as part of a required annual agency report on federal employees’ tax compliance. Turns out, an awful lot of folks being paid by taxpayers are not paying their own income taxes.

The report finds that thousands of federal employees owe the country more than $3.4 billion in back taxes. That’s up 3% in the past year.

Couple this news with the fact that 73% of all jobs created in the last five months have been government jobs. Are we creating more tax cheating bureaucrats at taxpayer expense?

We have more than the usual number of left-wing critics reading the site lately thanks to the union guy’s assault on Steven Crowder in Michigan. Any of you folks have anything to say about these Obama staffers owing back taxes? Can you find a way to blame this on Bush? Come on, be creative.
