something taxes

Recurring Theme: There's something about taxes
OK. You know about the Secretary of the damn Treasury, and you know the first-anointed potential Secretary of HHS, and you know about the White House performance chief, and now we know about two people lined up for Treasury jobs but are now S.O.L., and we know (from our report here 1-29-2009) about D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry. Now comes news that 22 members of the Georgia legislature either owe back taxes or failed to file at least once in the last six years. (Bonus: The state senate's Democratic leader is one who failed to file, and when a colleague proposed a new ethics rule to punish tax scofflaws, the Dem called the colleague a "bloodsucker.")

For the people doesn't mean much any more.

How hard can it be to pay your taxes? I'm flat broke and I still manage to do it. There seems to be some kind of weird correlation between how much money you make and whether or not you'll actually pay. Is it a matter of "I'm rich so these rules don't apply to me" or is it just "I want to stay rich"?
