Part of why our taxes are so high


Someone has to report this outrageous conduct. The news media spends to much time on Tiger and not enough time on import subjects as stated below.





Somebody spent a lot of time putting this together..... .
                        Pretty good summary of what is known - how much more is hidden?



The amount of federal taxes that Secretary of the Treasury
Timothy Geithner
 (D) failed to pay during his employment at
the International Monetary Fund despite receiving extra
compensation and explanatory brochures that described his
tax liabilities.



The amount of money that the  head of the  powerful
tax-writing committee,
 Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), was
forced to report  on his taxes after the discovery that he
had not reported income from a   Dominican Republic rental 
property. His excuses for the failure started with blaming
his wife, then his accountant and finally the fact that he
didn't speak Spanish. 



The  INCREASE in the amount of petty cash each of our
Congressional representatives
 voted to give themselves in
January 2009 during the height of an economic meltdown.
That's a $40 + million INCREASE!  See video here from Fox


The amount Fannie Mae "invested" in Chris Dodd (D-CT), head
of the powerful Senate Banking Committee, presumably to
repel oversight of the GSE prior to its meltdown. Said
meltdown helped touch off the  current economic crisis. In
only a few years time, Fannie also "invested" over
in then-Senator Barack Obama.  



The amount of back taxes and interest that Cabinet nominee
Tom Daschle (D) was forced to cough up after the vetting
process revealed significant, unexplained tax liabilities.

True:   Wall Street Journal


The approximate amount of income and deductions that
Daschle (D)
 was forced to report on his amended 2005 and
2007 tax returns after being caught cheating on his taxes.
This includes $255,256 for the use of a car service, 
$83,333 in unreported income, and $14,963 in charitable

True:  Wall Street Journal


The amount of "sweetheart" mortgages Senate Banking
Chairman Chris Dodd (D-CT)
 received from Countrywide
Financial, the details for which he has refused to release
details despite months of promises  to do so. Countrywide
was once the nation's largest mortgage lender and linked
to  Government-Sponsored Entities like Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac. Their meltdown precipitated the current
financial crisis. Just days ago in  Pennsylvania ,
Countrywide was forced to pay $150,000,000 in mortgage
assistance following "a state investigation that concluded
that Countrywide relaxed its underwriting standards to
sell risky loans to consumers who did not understand them
and could not afford them." 



The  estimated amount of donations by Denise Rich, wife of
fugitive Marc Rich, to Democrat interests and the William 
J. Clinton Foundation in an apparent quid pro quo deal that
resulted in a pardon for Mr. Rich. The pardon was reviewed
and blessed by Obama Attorney General and then Deputy AG
Eric Holder, despite numerous requests by government
officials to turn it down.  



The amount of TARP money provided to community bank
OneUnited despite the fact that it did not qualify for
funds, and was "under attack from its regulators for
allegations of poor lending practices and executive-pay
abuses."  It turns out that
 Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a key
contributor to the Fannie Mae meltdown, just happens to be
married to one of the bank's former directors.  

True:  Wall Street Journal


The upper range of net worth Rep. Allan  Mollohan (D-WV)
accumulated in four years time according to The Washington
Post through earmarks of "tens of millions of dollars to
groups associated with his own business partners." 

True:   Washington Post


($2 billion) the approximate amount of  money that House
Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) is earmarking
related to his son's lobbying  efforts. The son, Craig Obey,

is "a top lobbyist for the nonprofit group" that would
receive a roughly $2 billion component of the "Stimulus"


and this as a list of these related stories: 


$3.7 billion) not to be outdone, this is the estimated
value of various defense contracts awarded to a company
controlled by the husband of Rep. Diane Feinstein (D-CA).
Despite an obvious conflict-of-interest as "a  member of
the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee, Sen.
Feinstein voted for appropriations worth billions to her 
husband's firms."  



($4.19 billion) the amount of money in the so-called
"Stimulus" package devoted to
 fraudulent voter 
ACORN group under the auspices of "Community
Stabilization Activities". ACORN is currently the subject
of a RICO suit in  Ohio ... 


$1,646,000,000,000  ($1.646  trillion):

The approximate amount of annual  United States exports
endangered by the "Stimulus" package
, which provides a "Buy
American" stricture. According to international trade
experts, a "US-EU trade war looms" which could result in
a worldwide economic depression reminiscent of that touched
off by the protectionist Smoot-Hawley Act. 




Background:  Smmot-Hawley Act:

It's becoming a culture of corruption and  stupidity. 

In addition, these folks appear to be above the law. 

All of the aforementioned are still in office, living 
like the royalty they think they are. 

Remember: This all happened in just the FIRST QUARTER,
