I have written before about the IRS and the Tax code.
This post IDENTIFIES individuals, from BOTH POLTICAL PARTIES, that have had “trouble” completing their taxes. Oops, I did not mean “trouble”, I meant, they made “honest mistakes”. No wait…..I meant “trouble”, “honest mistakes” was THEIR EXCUSE.
Here is another post that identifies an INDIVIDUAL that Obama appointed to the Treasury Department.
Did I already say that Obama appointed ANOTHER ONE with TAX PROBLEMS??
I am sure that you can find others, if these are not enough of REAL WORLD, FACTUAL articles about HIGH RANKING people that CAN NOT DO THEIR TAXES CORRECTLY. Or you can be cynical and think these are not just “Honest Mistakes” and that these people are TAX CHEATS, and are NOT PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE.
But now, I have another FACTUAL story that makes my blood boil. You can say whatever you like, but if you take an honest, unbiased look at this next story, you can come to only one conclusion. This person is a LIAR. This person is a THIEF. This person is a TAX CHEAT. This person BELONGS IN PRISON!
I am going to write a couple of paragraphs. I would like you to read them both, with an open mind, and THINK ABOUT YOUR REACTIONS. I am going to write these articles from two different perspectives. One from the Left and one from the Right.
Let’s start from the Right.
Let’s say we have a Ex-President (like Richard Nixon) and he does some lobbying for the Oil companies. These Oil companies pay him large amounts of money so that he can convince law makers to go easy on laws that restrict their drilling. Then an oil spill happens, and he helps lighten the burden of the clean up. So the oil companies pay him some more, because he is very helpful. While he was doing this, the Tobacco companies also liked the access that he had, so they paid him also. He helped keep the lawmakers at bay, so that they could keep selling their cancer sticks. Now, let’s say this ex-president had filed his taxes, for his lobbying company, but someone noticed that there “might” be some mistakes and that he needs to “re-file” for SEVERAL years to correct these “honest mistakes”.
Now from the Left.
Let’s say we have a Ex-President (like Jimmy Carter) and he does some charity work for some farmers and homeless people. This work that he does is so good that companies pay him large amounts of money so that he can continue to help the downtrodden. He goes around the world helping people that need it, and does this for decades. Then he start speaking politics and really picks some sides in some fights. The people that he is advocating for, enjoy the publicity from an ex-president and think this helps their cause so they pay him some more, because he is very helpful. Now, let’s say this ex-president had filed his taxes, for his charity, but someone noticed that there “might”, be some mistakes and that he needs to “re-file” for SEVERAL years to correct these “honest mistakes”.
Please read those two paragraphs again. Think about them. Think about your reaction.
Which one of these people do YOU think was LYING?? Did they both make “honest mistakes”? Do you think that someone that used to be President could not find someone to do their taxes correctly? Do you think one or the other did this on purpose? Is the Tax Code too complex that the former most powerful person in the world can not find someone that knows it? WHAT IS YOUR REACTION?
Here is the TRUE STORY.
Hillary Clinton. The person who was the runner-up for the Democrat nomination to be President in 2008. The person who was a Senator from New York. The person who was an Attorney. The person who was the First Lady. The person whose husband was President for 8 years. The person who was the Secretary of State. The person who appears to be leading for the Democrat nomination to be President in 2016. Hillary Clinton started a charitable foundation and CAN NOT GET HER TAXES DONE CORRECTLY.
Here is an article from Reuters.
“Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors.”
FIVE YEARS WORTH???
I’m not making this story up. Here is an article from Fox News that contains a ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FROM THE CLINTON FOUNDATION:
“The Clinton Foundation acknowledged Sunday that the nonprofit group “made mistakes” in IRS filings…”
FIVE YEARS WORTH???
These people belong in JAIL!!! And/Or the Tax Code needs to be thrown out!!!
There are NO OTHER OPTIONS.
