From the mouth of the tax-cheat who is now Secretary of the Treasury;
(NECN: Washington) - Over the next several months, the president will propose a series of legislative and enforcement actions to reduce tax avoidance," this afternoon said Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner in testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee.
Can the hypocrisy be any more clear?
Obama needs to watch out, though. Cracking down on tax cheats might leave him with no cabinet.
Tom Daschle had to pay back taxes, Nancy Killefer pulled because of tax issues and now, Ron Kirk, former mayor of Dallas, owes back taxes. Oh, but Ron has agreed to pay those back taxes. Isn't that big of him? He agreed.
And, we have Mr. Big, Tim Geithner, SecTreas, who didn't pay taxes.
How many more in this misbegotten administration are - lax - on tax isues?
Well, maybe "cracking down" is subjective...
