Taxes and Patriotism

John on February 3, 2009 at 11:29 am

Remember during the campaign when Joe Biden said it was patriotic to pay taxes? Gateway Pundit does:

Biden said: “It’s time to be patriotic… Time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”

But, what if democrats don’t pay taxes?…Are they being unpatriotic?

First, it was Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner who didn’t pay taxes and lied about it.

Then it was Health and Human Services nominee Tom Daschle who ran into a little glitch when it was discovered he didn’t pay taxes either. Hey…nobody’s perfect!

Now, it’s first chief performance officer nominee Nancy Killefer, who failed for a year and a half to pay employment taxes on household help. She withdrew her candidacy today.

Daschle is out now too, as of half and hour ago. Is this what Woodward was talking about?

Over at Hot Air, AP notes that the above list doesn’t include Charlie Rangel and Caroline Kennedy, both of whom had tax problems recently.
