Charlie Rangel can’t seem to understand the tax code, which is excusable because most liberals can’t. However, there’s one catch. Charlie Rangel is in charge of the committee that writes the tax code. You would think someone that spends his time writing and editing our million page tax code would have a pretty good handle on what is good and what is illegal, but of course that makes too much sense. Instead, the spitting image of Dracula seems to think that rental property income is tax-exempt and the price of other properties flunctuates with the mood he’s in. Well, it doesn’t seem to work that way for the rest of us. Here are the details on Charlie’s latest little tax dilema:
Most know of Charlie’s tax dodging ways when it came to his rental property in the Dominican Republic. He was just slightly confused with the fine print that he wrote, and thought that his out-of-country property was there tax-free. Since he’s a liberal, he got a slight slap on the wrist from Queen of Congress, Nancy Pelosi, and was told he could pay up if he felt so inclined. But apparently he didn’t learn then (In his defense, I don’t know why he’d learn a lesson. He didn’t get in trouble.), and now is cheating his own rules once again. The latest little omition from his taxes was a house that he sold in Washington, in addition to a home that changed value three times over a few year span; going from $50,000 to $100,000, then even as high as $5oo,000. Of course Charlie sites the changes and omition as simple mistakes that could happen to anyone. Well he is right about that; however, if anyone else had made these so-called “mistakes” they’d be sitting in the tax-evasion dungeon underneath Charlie’s office. How ironic.
Charlie’s got to go. And all the other tax cheats, evaders, and the loophole posse can follow him on his walk of shame. I consider myself a forgiving person, but come on. Whose anyone kidding that Count Rangula (Had to) wasn’t fully aware of his alleged “mistake”? No one with a half a brain buys that bull crap. We have got to start extending the same punishments to those with power that we common folk are faced with. We don’t get fifty million chances to get it right; they actually expect us to *GASP* obey the law. Something needs to be immediately done with Rangel, Geithner, and the rest of the tax-evasion crew. How about they pay back what they owe, inluding penalties? That’s a start.
What do you think about the tax-evaders running amok in our government? I know, let’s all just make “mistakes” on our taxes and see if we just get a warning. How does that sound? Leave your comments on this below or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
