tax, smax & mr president's picks
3rd times the charm! apparently nancy killefer, obama's pick for chief performance officer for the federal gov, has tax issues as well...
she failed for a year & a half to pay employment taxes on household help. an ap article goes on to say "in 2005 the DC government had filed a $946.69 tax lien on her home for failure to pay unemployment compensation tax on household help"! funny b/c yesterday i changed my book of face (facebook to the rest) status to say how funny i thought the quote from senior republican was: "Listen, no wonder that Democrats don't mind raising people's taxes, b/c they don't end up paying them themselves."
