Many of our so-called “public servants”, whose salaries are paid by our taxes, can’t be bother with paying their own! This is outrageous!
From the article:
The IRS says 276,300 current and federal workers owe about $3 billion in 2008 income taxes.
– White House: 50 staffers owe nearly $813,000.
– U.S. House of Representatives: 447 employees owe $5.8 million.
– U.S. Senate: 231 staffers owe more than $2.4 million.
Making this even more outrageous is the fact that Federal workers are incresingly making ridiculous salaries, again, from the taxes WE PAY. Please read the following articles:
