Obama’s budget plan calls for increased tax enforcement…just not within his own cabinet

Obama’s First Budget Seeks To Trim Deficit

So many things to write about within this article but so little patience for all things Obama!  He knows a lot of  people are outraged about the deficit spending stimulus plan.  By unveiling this latest plan to reduce the deficit, he’ll at least fool some of the huddled masses into thinking he’s not a big spender.  Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the useful idiots in the MSM are continuing their laudatory, incurious coverage of Obama.

I especially like how he’s made a couple of financial policy announcements this weekend–when the markets are closed.  Could it be that Obama has realized that the markets don’t seem to have much confidence in his abilities?  How much has the Dow tanked since America’s first true socialist president took office? 

Obama’s budget calls for higher taxes on businesses and the wealthy [a smart recession move, eh?] and spending cuts.  Of course, Obama has not targeted wasteful spending, layers of bureaucracy and redistributive programs–those things will only grow throughout his administration.  Obama’s spending cuts will be from our ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.  More for food stamps, more to keep uncreditworthy buyers in homes they can’t afford, more for health care [but only if the government deems it cost-effective] and less for defending America against Islamic terrorism.  The bright side of all of this nonsense is that at least Obama is making it easier for Conservatives to make the distinction between their policies and those of the socialist liberals currently in charge.

The real kicker for me in this article was this quote:

“Obama also proposes “a fairly aggressive effort on tax enforcement” that would target corporate loopholes…”

Now why is it that he cares whether or not corporations pay their fair share of taxes while nominating a bunch of tax cheats for positions in his administration?  Geithner, Daschle, Killefer, Solis…those are just the ones we know about so far.  Hypocrisy, any one?

An Obama appointee with integrity–she’s withdrawing!

Posted by Liberty on February 3, 2009

Performance Czar Killefer Withdraws Candidacy

I’m experiencing that feeling of deja vu this morning.  Yet another Obama appointee has tax issues!  Wow!  Let me predict what is going to be said about performance czarina Nancy Killefer’s tax problem.  “It was an honest mistake.”  Or perhaps, “She had a little glitch with her Turbo Tax.” 

“Ms. Killefer, 55 years old, failed to pay employment taxes on household help for a year and a half, the Associated Press reported. In 2005, the AP said, the District of Columbia filed a $946.69 tax lien on her home for failure to pay the unemployment compensation tax. The error was resolved five months later.”

Oh…the old employment taxes on the household help.  Well, we’ve all had that problem, right?  I couldn’t find the box on the 1040 for that one, either.

As it turns out, though, silly excuses probably won’t be necessary.  Nancy Killefer is withdrawing her candidacy, saying that she doesn’t want her tax problems to be a distraction for the new administration.  There goes the only Obama appointee [so far] who possessed an ounce of shame.  Tom?  Tim?  What about you guys?

Oh, and one more thing.  How badly would the MSM be savaging tax-challenged appointees to a Republican administration?
