What Is Wrong With The Democrats?

No, seriously, this is getting ridiculous. Yet another of Obama’s “Best and Brightest” nominees has failed to pay their taxes.

Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius has paid back taxes and interest of more than $7,800 stemming from “unintentional errors” revealed during her accountant’s review of recent tax returns.

The White House on Tuesday released a letter Sebelius sent to the Senate Finance Committee, detailing how she lacked proper paperwork in accounting for some charitable donations and business expenses. The Kansas governor also mistakenly claimed a mortgage interest deduction on a house she had already sold.

Trust me, if this was happening under a Republican administration, the media would be calling for the head of the President.

This is completely nuts. I am a private citizen and I spend a few hundred bucks a year to have a CPA take care of my taxes and keep all the records straight. I can guarantee you that my accountant would never, ever allow this kind of error. How do you claim a mortgage interest deduction for a property you have sold? How do you “forget” you sold it at tax time?

This is not – at all – funny anymore. This is not tolerable.

Get Sebelius out of government now. We do not need this level of incompetence running the country. This is two nominees in a row with tax issues that should never have happened.

Get her out of Washington and your wallets, folks.

    Sebelius is big on infanticide and taxing people for an expensive govt-run health program that will be predictably ten times as inefficient [I worked in the Fed as an employee in the Dept. of State & even they eff-up everything they do] as the current woeful system.

    Sebelius is going to get the same puffery from the NYT that Biden got last weekend, without bringing reality into the news. Zero is beginning to become a slo-mo laugh riot, with 23 senior slots in Treasury [all subject to Senate confirmation] still not filled. Who wants to work with tax cheats and for a public relations constitutional lawyer trying to destroy the Constitution?

    I am increasingly coming to the conclusion that the IRS doesn’t bother to audit the Big People. They cheat because they know they won’t get caught. And if they have to pay to get the coveted Gov’t job, it’s just the taxes. No interest. No penalties. Meanwhile the Little People get raked over the coals as they have no way to push back. It is infuriating.

    My bad. Sebelius at least did pay the interest. One wonders how the media would have reacted if the parade of tax cheats had been members of the GOP?
