Obama staffers owe $834,000 in back taxes, Feds $3.4 billion
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. That’s up seven workers and nearly $4 million from the Bush administration’s 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.
And it’s not just the White House. The IRS “report finds
that thousands of federal employees owe the country more than $3.4
billion in back taxes”—a 3% increase in just the last year. The list
includes employees of,
The U.S. Senate — $2.1 million
The House of Representatives —$8.5 million
Department of Education — $4.3 million
Homeland Security — 4,697 workers, $37 million
Active duty military — $100 million+
Postal Service — 25,640 offenders, $270 million
Veterans Affairs — 11,659 workers, $151 million
Energy Department — $5 million
Department of Justice — 2,069 employees, $17 million
