AND WHAT ABOUT ALL THE TAX "CHEATS" THEY DON'T KNOW ABOUT? Sez the New York Times:
On Tuesday the Senate Finance Committee will hold hearings on tax shelters that, committee aides said, will feature testimony that tax cheating continues unabated and that the numerous crackdowns announced over the past two years by the Internal Revenue Service have had almost no impact. ...
As a result many businesses and individuals are breaking the law because their risk of detection is small and even if they are caught they are unlikely to be punished or even made to pay the taxes. ...
About eight of 10 known tax cheats are let go without having to even pay the taxes, interest or penalties.
Now, this is clearly an outrage, people! All of you who think the government is entitled to more of your earnings should just pay up -- right now! The federal government simply can't survive on the revenue from those two "known tax cheats" who had to fork over their dough. How do you expect it to go on bashing small mid-eastern countries, smashing pot growers, or buying up land for the sake of obscure warty toads and U.N. eco-liberationists if you don't send it your money??? Shame, shame, shame. Positively un-PatriotActic. Grumblegrumble. Downright American.
