I find it highly ironic that Obama is going to sign a directive today "cracking down on tax cheats getting federal contracts." There doesn't seem to be any reference to tax cheats getting nominated for Cabinet positions, or high-ranking government jobs, but you've got to draw the line somewhere, I guess.
Jason Miller for Federal News Radio also reports:
The President will also instruct the Internal Revenue Service to review the "overall accuracy of companies' claims about tax delinquency to be sure that when a company says it's paying taxes, it's not lying," the White House said in a statement released ahead of the President's daily schedule.
That's rich. Can't have any one "lying" about anything, now, can we?
I'm all for cleaning up the process of federal contracts, but maybe we ought to look in our own house as well, Mr. Obama?
Oh, the irony.
