Eric Holder Charging Taxpayers Millions for Personal Travel

Members of the Obama Administration live and act above the law.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/holder...163800997.html

"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."

Don't know who wrote the article, but they're idiots. I travel on business on a weekly basis. My reimbursements ARE NOT TAXED. No legitimate business expense is taxed. I pay for food, hotel and gas, and the company pays me back. I am not taxed on those payments, and the company writes them off their taxes.

Personal travel using company assets are different. I have personal use of my company car. For that I pay tax on it's use.

If they are using government vehicles for personal travel, they do not pay tax on it, they are supposed to PAY BACK THE EXPENSE, the actual cost of that travel.
Thanks from waitingtables and RNG

Does that mean that we can count on the IRS to check up on Holder? Who refuses to investigate the same IRS; what a screwed up Administration.

Personal use of Federal aircraft is the problem, $7.8 million of non-official personal use.

And who is paying for Michelle Obamas....trip to China? Taking her daughters and her mother.....for what?

Are taxpayers paying for it?

The facts....no reporter traveling on the GOVERNMENT plane.

White House won't reveal how much trip will cost us.

Out of 22 events planned reporters get to see her 2 times...but not talk to her.

She will appear for photo-ops and public events that are 'pooled press' – just one reporter or photographer noting her comings and goings.

WE PAY FOR THE ENTIRE TRIP. NO ACCOUNTABILITY. And Obama said his administration would be open and honest.

What a joke...what a lie.
