'Render Unto Caesar' Applies to Plebeians Only "Forty-one aides to President Obama owe $831,000 in back taxes.   Meanwhile, as noted earlier, unpaid taxes have risen 37 percent among Capitol Hill staff, to $9.3 million.  Taxes, it seems, are only for the little people, not their liberal overlords.  Even the Treasury secretary, who oversees the IRS, has cheated on his taxes."

Sitting on a window ledge on the 3rd floor of a hotel room on a navy base overlooking Lake Michigan, it took a second for this to properly register in my mind this morning. 

Here's my conclusion:
A. Criminals
B. The obvious point is that if we tried this as citizens, it would never fly. Ever.
C. Our leadership is completely inept at selecting its staff, why are we comfortable as a nation trusting them with our money?

This a symptom of the Ruling Elite. They do not think that they have to abide by the same rules and laws that the Ruled must follow. There is no enforcement as they are "Exempt" by their own standards and not subject to punishment. Yes any normal citizen would be harassed beyond measure until the debt is cleared up. Just ask Aunt Becky. The IRS has been on their backs since 1989.
