More news on Big Shots who got caught not paying taxes. Former senator, Tom Daschle withdrew his bid for United States Health Secretary and Nancy Killefer withdrew her candidacy to be the first Chief Performance Officer for the federal government.
“Tom made a mistake, which he has openly acknowledged,” Obama said, speaking about Daschle, whom he considers a close personal friend. “He has not excused it, nor do I. But that mistake and this decision cannot diminish the many contributions Tom has made to this country.”
With all due respect to President Obama…As I mentioned yesterday…If the guy on the street got caught not paying taxes, he or she would be in deep doodoo and no-one …let me repeat no-one would care how many wonderful things he or she did for family, the community or even the country.
The reality is…Americans have a right to be outraged at tax dodgers being nominated for high ranking offices. Every American should be treated the same regardless of their social, political or economic status.
No more excuses for highfalutin folks who think they are above reproach.
