Obama White House Continues To Be Filled With Tax Scofflaws

While President Barack Obama keeps insisting that the record government deficits piled up during his administration are to blame on the failure of the American people to pay enough taxes to the government, dozens of his White House employees continue to avoid paying their share of taxes.

The latest report from the IRS shows that 40 White House aides owe the IRS more than $333,000 in back taxes. In its previous report, the IRS found 36 aides owing $833,000 in back taxes, and in the previous year it found 41 staff members owing $830,000.

Other federal employees and retirees are equally as bad about paying their taxes. The latest report shows that 313,000 federal employees and retirees owe the IRS a combined $3.52 billion. That's $100 million higher than the IRS' previous audit showed.
