Do As I Say, Not As I Do

I see that Tax-Cheat Timothy Geithner is in favor of tax hikes. Of course he is--he's the guy who didn't bother paying the taxes he owed even though he signed documents up front saying that he knew that he owed them. And he's not alone--in fact, that's one reason so many Democrats support hikes. They don't bother paying them anyway, and they're allowed to cheat the system with impunity (hey, one of the most flagrant cheats is now Secretary of the Treasury!), so they always assume that they're raising the taxes on someone else, not on themselves.

And have you also noticed that none of the Democrats who support hikes have voluntarily paid the higher rates they want to impose on others? The IRS has a gift address to which taxpayers can send excess payments if they'd like--wonder why none of these guys pay what they feel the "fair share" should be?

And for any reader who feels that urge to set an example by paying more than you should to the government, here's the address:

Gifts to the United States
U.S. Department of the Treasury
Credit Accounting Branch
3700 East-West Highway, Room 622D
Hyattsville, MD 20782

And no, it's not tax deductible....

And no, I'm not so foolish as to believe that any member of Obama's cabinet, staff, family, or any of his supporters are going to do this. Remember, they're the ones most likely not to pay what they owe...
