I think if you're a government employee and you owe taxes you should be either
be suspended or terminated. Too many Americans work too hard to pay their
salaries, and if they can't contribute too, then replace them with someone who
will. As a government employee, I feel you're MORE obligated to pay your taxes.
Sounds like the federal government employees are simply following the lead of
the government itself. Just pay what you can and don't worry about the rest. I
don't know, maybe downsize the 1,800 people employed in the president's cabinet.
Just getting rid of hairdressers for the Mrs. would cut that down to 1,700.
As I understand it, Government workers make better wages than the general public
especially when you factor in benefits and retirement. This make the fact that
they are behind even worse.
Obama has spent tens of millions of our money per vacation. More than all the
GOP candidates earn combined in a year. Should he give a little back in taxes?
Maybe, tighten the belt and sacrifice a little? Set an example?
