POLITICO: For Senators, Tax Questions Are Taxing. “The offices of two senators — Jim Webb (D-Va.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — told Politico that they would not answer the survey questions. The offices of Kyl and 42 other senators — 17 Republicans, 24 Democrats and Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) — failed to respond at all. Some Senate offices took issue with the line of questioning, saying it was either unfair or an invasion of privacy. Aides to one senator told Politico that they considered the survey ‘presumptuous and intrusive.’ Some Senate press secretaries encouraged others not to respond to the survey.” Taxes are for the little people!

UPDATE: Say, what I’d really like to see is a list of stock trades made by members of Congress after the September meltdown briefing . . . .
