Federal income tax laws are a few more laws that Holder feels are unfair and he shouldn't have to enforce, but only as applied to members of the Obama Administration.

since you brought it up... ... ...

As Obama demands rich Americans pay more in taxes, the IRS reveals 36 Obama aides are far behind in their taxes by Andrew Malcolm - Investors.com

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.


The Treasury Department, where Obama nominee Tim Geithner had to pay up $42,000 in his own back taxes before being confirmed as secretary, has 1,181 other employees with delinquent taxes totaling $9.3 million.



Thanks from Tony

"Then a report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) showed that many of these top executives who travel extensively for work are skirting the law and not paying income tax on their hefty travel reimbursements, as ordinary Americans are required to do.

Now we learn that Senior Justice Department officials including Attorney General Eric Holder and former FBI Director Robert Mueller used federal aircraft for hundreds of personal trips that were not properly reported, according to a report by Congress’s nonpartisan Government Accountability office issued this week.

GAO found that Holder, Mueller and other Justice Department executives took 395 unclassified, non-mission flights between fiscal years 2009 and 2001. GAO determined that the flights cost taxpayers $7.8 million."
but did he fly his dog on air force one? those vip pooches only travel first class..

idk who I loathe more--holder or Obama. 2 peas in a pod..

it would be very interesting to see an audit for mrs. Obama's vacations. I bet there are a lot of zeros behind that figure..
Thanks from azchurchmouse

I don't recall transparency ever being a platform.

There was a time when the press did their vetting and kept a president honest to a degree. There was always a little bias in the press, but subtle. The bias has been creeping for a while. You could start to catch t progressing during the later part of the Vietnam war.

It is the courts that have allowed this to happen.
Our government is responsible. The people who could hold him accountable....even those in his own party....could do something. And they don't.

What can we do? LOL Nothing. WE THE PEOPLE DON'T MATTER.

We just show up like idiots at the polls, cast our ballots for the idiots who will then go to Washington and do what THEY WANT TO DO.

Yes, future Conservatives. Almost every college freshman is a liberal, very altruistic, and anti Republican; in other words a low information voter.
