Who’s next? Tax troubles for president’s chief of staff
There could be tax troubles on the horizon for White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who reportedly has lived rent-free in Washington for five years but hasn’t paid taxes on the imputed income, according to reports.
He’s the latest in a growing list of President Obama’s nominees to have been involved in tax issues.
WND columnist Phyllis Schlafly writes that several of “Obama’s major nominees are mired in political embarrassment. Three withdrew their names from consideration, one sneaked through confirmation because senators were still intoxicated with the Obama honeymoon, and Obama plans to use a waiver so the Senate will approve the fifth.”
“Funny thing,” she continued, “Americans don’t seem to like it when government officials evade the taxes the rest of us pay, especially when they evade more taxes than most Americans’ entire tax bill. Apparently, that doesn’t seem to bother Obama.”
