The problem is that there is no problem and that's an irritant to Democrats in a race for their political futures. Romney paid his taxes and produced his tax returns to demonstrate it.
However - 36 Obama aides owe $833,000 in back taxes
Please don't wait for MSNBC to cover that story, because you'll have a really LONG wait.
How embarrassing this must be for President Obama, whose major speech theme so far this campaign season has been that every single American, no matter how rich, should pay their "fair share" of taxes.
A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama's executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven't paid any share, let alone their fair share.
Previous reports have shown how well-paid Obama's White House staff is, with 457 aides pulling down more than $37 million last year.
Nearly one-third of Obama's aides make more than $100,000 with 21 being paid the top White House salary of $172,200, each. (Investors Business Daily)The IRS' 2010 delinquent tax revelations come as part of a required annual agency report on federal employees' tax compliance. The report finds that thousands of federal employees owe the country more than $3.4 billion in back taxes.
The tax offenders include employees of the U.S. Senate who help write the laws imposed on everyone else. They owe $2.1 million. Workers in the House of Representatives owe $8.5 million, Department of Education employees owe $4.3 million and over at Homeland Security, 4,697 workers owe about $37 million. Attorney General Eric Holder is on the list too. But I suspect that he's been so busy defending himself from Congressional Indictment that it simply slipped his mind. (LINK)
