Updated 5:45 p.m. (Central)

WASHINGTON (AP) — Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius has corrected three years of tax returns and paid more than $7,000 in back taxes after finding “unintentional errors” — the latest tax troubles for an Obama administration nominee.

It is easy to see why democrats have no problems with heavy taxation. The rule and don’t pay, you obey and pay.

Easy, huh?

“unintentional errors”

When I accidentally run over a pedestrian, it’s usually unintentional. Still illegal.

Not as large of a problem as Tom Dasch-hole had, but problems none the less.

What is it about affluent Democrats that causes them to have so many tax problems...???

Everyone is so inoculated about this, that the Governor won’t feel much heat over this at all. What will remain lost is that had she not been nominated, these “unintentional errors” would have gone un-noticed and un-corrected....

Geeze, everybody got this - do you suppose it is a trend? Apologies for duplicate post.

Remember Kansas is suspending state tax refunds for lack of funds. What a good record to be running on!

Democrats pay taxes? Why, if they had to pay them they would not be near as likely to raise them if they were expected to pay them. They just expect everyone else to pay them.

This is just too much. Three years? Unintentional? I am sickened with the fact that the law does not apply to these effing liberals. They have a lot of nerve to even consider accepting an appointment, knowing they will, once again, in a hearing, have to use the same tired excuses. It is a slap in the face to the average American.

Just in time for April 15th...

Note that her son had a game with one of the goals being "putting glass in people's food"...

The game has a title ("Don't Drop the Soap") that I find offensive.

But Governor Sebelius is "proud of her son's work".

Also, the game is currently being sold out of the Kansas Governor's Mansion...

Democrat politicians never pay their taxes thats why they have no problem with raising them for us fools that do pay our fair share.

No. That’s for the little people. Why do think they always want to raise them? Its no concern of theirs... 15%, 50%, why should one care when one just ignores paying?

What if we all just stopped paying our taxes? What if all of us filed W4s claiming 15 dependents. Obviously the IRS doesn’t come after anyone.

It is remarkable that nobody in this administration seems to be able to figure out TurboTax.

But that said... Lots of people submit amended returns. $7,000 in errors over three years just doesn’t strike me as a big deal. Assuming that her income is pretty high, it seems like a trivial thing.

Er, excuse me Ramius. I don’t know what “lots of people” translates to you in terms of folks who submit amended returns. Furthermore, I don’t care. I don’t make mistakes on my returns—nor do my family members or friends. Also, unless arrogance trumps good sense, one would think politicians would make darn sure their tax situation was in order-—given all the mucking about they do in each other’s cess pools. Don’t ya think?

It’s the arrogance thing I think. First, they feel their elitest position entitles them to, ah, certain perogatives. And secondly, they’re pretty certain that if caught their elitiest position will insulate them from accountability.

Another thing, I’m a student of patterns in human behavior. Don’t you think that all these demrat tax cheats represent a pattern? Or is all this just coincidence?

Deal W. Hudson had commentary on these bishops and their stand yesterday:

Commentary: Closing Ranks on Canon 915: Bishops Confirm that Sebelius should not receive Communion

And NYer posted the www.insidecatholic.com version at:

Closing Ranks on Canon 915 (Governor Sebelius got some bad news last week)

Do you have a source for the announcements today (Arlington, VA and Washington, DC Dioceses/Archdioceses)?

There are a couple of FreeRepublic articles on the son of Governor Sebelius game "Don't Drop the Soap", where one goal of the game is to put "glass in people's food".

See Kansas governor's son creates prison-themed board game, 'Don't Drop the Soap'

There is also this one on FreeRepublic:

What I can't understand is don't these people have accountants who do their taxes? If so, then the accountants would go to bat for them if the accountants made a mistake. If they did not report information to an accountant I can't see that being an "oversight." More like they omitted providing the information on purpose.

Or, if they don't use an accountant regularly I am sure they would have have people on their staff who handle their daily finances and keep tabs on income received (like from speaking engagements, etc.)and have it all tabulated at tax filing time. So who made the "oversight?"

As well as being crooks themselves, do these Dems also employ crooked accountants and/or bookeepers? I doubt these Dems who have had the reported tax problems handle their finances by themselves.

OK, someone with time has to peruse all of this “legislation” to see if the Imperial Legislature has exempted themselves from the confiscatory tax increases that will bankrupt us. If so, we must challenge this “budget” at the Supreme Court as unconstitutional, violating the equal protection clause.
