Obama's Aides - Tax Cheats

36 Obama aides owe $833,000 in back taxes

Investor's Business Daily -- How embarrassing this must be for President Obama, whose major speech theme so far this campaign season has been that every single American, no matter how rich, should pay their "fair share" of taxes.

Because how unfair -- indeed, un-American -- it is for an office worker like, say, Warren Buffet's secretary to dutifully pay her taxes, while some well-to-do people with better educations and higher incomes end up paying a much smaller tax rate.

Or, worse, skipping their taxes altogether.

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.

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.

Blog author's comments - When Obama said all people have to pay their "fair share" he was not referring to members of his administration. What would happen to the rest of us if we did not pay our taxes?

Yet Obama continues to play the class warfare game and will until the election. If Obama wants to stir up class envy, the Republicans should use this information as a campaign ad.

Embarrassing for the President? Not a chance, just another day at the office for the Democrats.
