    I am not impressed at all with this type of excuse from a presidential appointee. This is nothing more than the same ole same corrupt business as usual.

    I agree with you. This person should be withdrawn now and a new pick made.

    He must make quite a bit of money if he owed that much in SS and Medicare.

    The guy fucked up and made some stupid mistakes. That doesn't effect his ability to run the Treasury Department. He should and will be confirmed.

    Nope sorry excuses such as, "uh duh, I did not think I have to pay my taxes" should not qualify anyone in such a position.

    If the people do not stand for accountability in leadership then we are all screwed. If someone makes such "stupid mistakes" they sure do not belong in a position such as a treasury secretary.

    It is as bad as a bank shorting an account $80,000.00 through creative accounting to call a loan later in an attempt to steal what the bank was never entitled. In my thoughts it is just not acceptable.

    If in fact it was just a mistake he is to dumb for the office.

    Really? What about Henry Paulson? Does this mean that he should be forgiven also?

    I mean......all he really did was make some stupid mistakes with the economy, right?

    This is like putting a child molester in charge of a daycare.
