    Obama is so arrogant, so dismissive, so derisive that Timmy TurboTax Geitner wasn't a lesson for him. No, Sir.

    Business people, corporate jets owners have to pay their "fair share" but Obama staffers, not so much

    According to a Washington Post analysis of IRS data, a total of 41 White House staff members owed back taxes worth more than $831,000 at the end of 2009.

    The arrogance of this man is unparallelled.

    They are deferred taxes, not back taxes. They are paid over a period of years. Cheney showed us how................:lol:

    The Post lists them as 'delinquent', not defered. I would be willing to cut the military some slack. When people are shooting at you, filing an IRS form is not the top priority. But the number for the U.S. Postal Service is a bit disturbing.

    It's all part of the entitlement mentality.

    If I owe 50,000 in taxes this year, I can't defer them. The only thing getting deferred will be the IRS kicking me out of my property. It must be a real pleasure to operate in alternative realities.
