The Washington Post reports that “Daschle Owed Back Taxes That Exceeded $128,000” over 3 years. (I wish I was making enough to owe that much in taxes over 3 years!) The reporter has the audacity (of hope, I suppose) to say that it may pose an obstacle to his confirmation as DHHS Secretary. I really don’t know what Washington Post is basing that on. It certainly didn’t hinder our current Treasury Secretary’s confirmation.
But, if companies go overseas to avoid paying taxes, then that is double plus ungood.
