What about the other examples I brought up?
Everyone is fixated on the rich vs poor tax subject.
The other ones from your OP, I assume?
The child support one is a dumpster fire topic well worth debating in it's own thread. As far as CS numbers fudgers go, we've got firsthand experience
with it -- my husband's ex fudged her numbers to make it look like she earned less than him in court documents in effort to up her monthly play money
check (she made MUCH more than him, and I'm liable to get into an Abolish Child Support rant if you push me on it) It bit her in the ass, she narrowly
avoided jail and spent 2 years sending HIM repayment checks. It was fecking awesome to see someone get law-spanked into red-cheeked oblivion for a
change for grossly abusing the right to CS, but it doesn't happen often enough. She only got caught because she messed up a couple numbers filing a
request for an increase in CS, and the court's eyebrow went up & wanted a much
closer look at her finances.
Most people float on through and the government is none the wiser about anyone withholding earnings info. This is based most often in greed and not
necessity. It's not excusable.
The athletes you mentioned are celebs because they already were celebs. Not sure where you're going with that one. Moreover, between celeb and
politician behavior, it's a big stretch of time between your examples given being relevant & at their peak versus today's date, and what the boomers
found acceptable sleights of hand in sports & politics back in there day aren't acceptable anymore today. Because times, standards and expectations
If all that's not what you were meaning for me to address, you might want to be a little more specific.
