Flat-tax. Reduce the size of government collecting taxes, reduce business accounting overhead, and reduce lawsuits since enforcement will be easy: you made $X, you owe $Y.
So how do you know what "latte liberals" pay and what range of deductions they may or may not use?

Two today and Richardson. Who else? Those are the three I mentioned.

Your question was "I mean how many nominees have had to w/draw already?"

What was the name of the federal department in charge of saving? Only ones I know about are just spending ones.

The next time you have run in's with the IRS, just say "I made an honest mistake" and see what their reaction is.

Again, we give Obama the same respect that Libs gave Bush. How about the whole rant of illegitimacy after 2000? How about the deplorable vandalism of the White House by the outgoing Clinton Administration? Not just W keys missing but porn left in the copiers and of course the actual theft of White House property by the Clintons.

Quite frankly I think Obama has been getting fair treatment. The only thing people have been pinging him on are his politics. Nobody here or in the news is going after him personally.

This is what happens when you play with pigs in the mud.

Obama is a smart man who knows how not to get into trouble. The only issue is that he has had to rely on the Chicago political machine to get where he is today. That in turn takes payback. Now those who are being paid back are turning out to be taxevaders and who knows what else.

I am sure that if a CIA agent visited Obama at his retreat at Camp David or somewhere else, and urgently warned him that terrorists are about to hijack airliners, he would immediately spring into action and at least do something to prevent the attack. Unlike Bush, who said to that CIA agent who came to see him at his Crawford Ranch: "OK, now you have covered your ass". And after these words Bush went back to what he was doing - clearing brush. Without taking any action to prevent the 9/11 attacks. Which qualifies as criminal negligence.

Somehow we do not hear much about that on Faux News. The entire 9/11 "investigation" was a sham, with the White House stonewalling the investigation every step of the way and Condoleeza Rice lying through her teeth and claiming that "nobody could have foreseen this". This despite the fact that Bush was given classified briefings in August 2001 about possibility of an attack against the US using hijacked airliners.

But it doesn't come anywhere near an Obama $T1+ barrel of pork, now does it?
