“Nobody’s Perfect” Give me a break!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sitting here listening to the White House Press Secretary and I just want to scream. Of course I generally support our new President but give me a break.  This isn’t accountability or new leadership.  This isn’t reformation.  This is same old government.

“Nobody’s perfect” is their response to Daschle not paying his taxes.  I want to know what would happen to me if I don’t pay my taxes.

I just mailed in a check for more than $3,200 for HALF my property taxes.  What would happen if I just “forgot” to pay,  or if I made an “honest mistake?”  If I said, well, “nobody’s perfect.”  What would happen?

Well I just checked and quess what?  The average American citizen, that’s you and me, we would, after ignoring many letters from the government informing us of our need to pay, would face …

If you continue to pursue your personal revolt against taxation, it could cost you!  The government has the right to recoup its money as it sees fit. It can:

  • Place a levy on your bank account
  • Place a lien on your home
  • Seize your car, boat, or any other personal or real property of value

Simply put, failure to file, failure to pay and tax evasion can result in any number of civil and even criminal punishments, including imprisonment.

I’m pissed off.  Why do they have different rules for politicians????  Tell me what you think?  And here’s what I think.

Let’s vet all politicians – make it a prerequisite for the job.  I’m thinking, if two out of Obama’s cabinet have now had issues with not paying taxes, there’s like a few more old dogs in Washington that think they can get away with ROBBING the American people.  It’s no coincidence, people.  They are ripping us off WHILE we pay their salaries.

Here they are, asking us to fork over billions in bailouts, when they are even keeping their own houses clean.

I’m angry and disgusted.

    That penalty is if you persist, not if you claim to have made a mistake and pay up. In that case, there is a late payment penalty, maybe, but that’s all.

      Yeah, I know. But it is the the point that they wouldn’t even pay up if they hadn’t been caught. And your average citizen doesn’t have that choice.

    Yeah, I don’t quite know how I feel about this yet. It just seems like in thie day and age, everybody has done something wrong and there is no purity left. I wanted to work for the Feds but the drug issue held me up. I would have been a great agent. I know Wendy would say, “Who cares, he paid them back.” My brother finally paid off his $125.000 he owed when he failed to pay employee taxes for 5 years. Why wasn’t this issue with Daschle caught earlier? Like when he ran initially. With all the bad hype on him in the previous years, one would think they would have drug this mess up. I think it’s irresponsible on the administrations part but what else are they gonna do? It seems like everbody has a bad rap and is part of The GOBclub.

      Indeed. I just think we should all have to play by the same rules. I regret that he didn’t stay in the job because he’s highly qualified. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be outraged that people don’t pay their taxes.

    Are you saying the average taxpayer who makes a mistake and isn’t caught will call attention to the mistake and pay up, as Daschle has? I doubt it.

      I’m not sure I understand what you’re getting at. But we’re all accountable and it’s all of us paying our taxes that make this government and system work.

    Absolutely require him to pay up and impose a penalty, but rejecting the nomination of the right person for the job on that basis is throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

    I wish he hadn’t resigned. I didn’t want that, simply the same accountability for politicians that your regular tax payer faces for flaunting the law.

  6. Man, I completely agree on that.

    There’s just way too many fools out there that can’t grasp.

    In fact, I was fightin with my best friend babyjean yesterday about this, and
    they wouldn’t admit to me that he was wrong. Now I can just show them your blog :)
