Raise 'em, But Don't Pay 'em

What is it with the Democrats, they only like to raise taxes so everyone else can pay them, but they do not pay their own taxes.

Another nominee runs into tax problems!

It should be the first question BO's team ask nowadays.

Labor Secretary nominee Hilda Solis' husband paid $6,400 to settle tax liens against his business that date back to 1993.

To be fair, if that's possible. She says she has no business connection to her husband's car business and he says he didn't know about the liens, and when he found out - he paid them quickly.

Sounds plausible ... we shall see.

All in all, it's not pretty on top of all the others. I say she should withdraw. But, hey, that's me thinking out loud again.

absent further evidence, i don't think she should withdraw. she's the one up for secretary, not her husband. daschle did the right thing by withdrawing, but the situations here are too dissimilar for her to follow his example.

I think Frogger might be right. $6400 is not much of a crime, not on these guys' standards, and if her husband's dealings business dealings are not connected to her own that is another factor. But why is it all these people come clean just before they attempt to take a government job? Do they only pay taxes when they take certain kinds of positions? And again, remember all the BS we heard about the "VETTING" process when the fair and balanced media wanted to attack Palin? Vetting was all we heard about. What is this now, a half dozen tax cheats Obama has appointed for top positions? What's with the vetting process? CNN/NBC/ABC/CBS/MSNBC won't mention it now.
