This is why left-wing crumbums like Rangel are always looking to try and raise taxes: because they don’t pay them anyway!

Imagine that. Democrats have such poor memories. Bill Clinton forgot that he sex with that woman. Ted Kennedy forgot that there was a young woman in his car.

Gee...that’s funny! I once forgot to claim $600.00 on my tax form and got sliced and diced for months over it.

It’s a foregone conclusion that he will not be removed from the Chair. Maybe he’ll be forced to pay ALL the penalties and interest we little peons would have to pay for doing something similar on a much smaller scale.

Crap, I’m dreaming again.

Funny how those elitist RTAT congressmen/women can “overlook” paying their taxes, isn’t it? He should go to prison for income tax evasion. This is not the first time for Charlie. The socialist pos!

Is this anything like when Sandy Burger forgot he had classified information stuffed in his pants?

Rangel should spend the rest of his life in prison. But he’ll never even be indicted.

Laws are for little people, remember this is “Animal Farm” where some animals are more equal than others. The Congressman is one of them.

Of course, we must not forget that he is chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, chiefly responsible for writing and revising the Tax Code. Kinda like having a tax cheat as Secretary of Treasury. Wait a minute! WE DO have a tax cheat as Secretary of Treasury!!! So I guess it’s OK.

I know I’m wasting my breath when I say: “How the hell can this guy continue in his committee chair, no to mention congress with his obvious, open record of tax evasion?”

Obviously just an oversight. Or a faulty tax preparation program CD. Or he got a phone call just as he was inputting the info. Or maybe Bobby Byrd’s dog, Billie, ate his notes!!

It’s starting to be an everyday occurance that these “eletist, arrogant, narcassistic, self important pukes” that have tha audacity to call themselves public servants get away with these antics. There will be a reckoning and it is called an election! VOTE THE TRASH OUT!, or better yet throw their sorry butts in the pen like they would do to me. Man, all these theives are starting to become tedious with their excuses of “I made a boo-boo so please forgive me”. Nuff said, I’m peeved.
