Democrats: Pay your taxes as we say, not as we do!

Democrats: Pay your taxes as we say, not as we do!
Al Ritter

It seems that Democrats are all for higher taxes on the rich, but when push comes to shove they try to avoid them too!

Charlie Rangel this week became immersed in his ethics investigation, the stone walling for the last few years is finally over. The once chairman for the Ways and Means Committee (the group who writes the IRS rules) has come under scrutiny for his rent controlled properties in NY city and his Dominican Republic vacation properties, and various other charges, that he as the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, knew were against the law. Rangel was replaced by another despicable Democrat with IRS problems of his own Pete Stark who tried to claim a homestead tax on his secondary home in Maryland which isn’t allowed.

We are all aware of Democrats who have skirted their IRS obligations, only to miraculously discover the error of their ways once they were named for specific Obama cabinet posts. Unlike us they were only made to pay the “oversight” in taxes, but not the penalties and interest.

Just this week we watched as John Kerry was exposed trying to skate his own state excise taxes on his 7 million dollar yacht, by docking it in Rhode Island. I don’t think anyone would question that if this wasn’t exposed he would have never come clean on this tax indiscretion.

I’m not asking that politicians be held to some higher morality, let’s just hold them to the very same laws they write that WE have to adhere to.

There is no morality with these people in the Democratic Party. They are as morally banckrupt as Satan. Grant.
