This is FOUR people who you've appointed that can't pay their damn taxes, including your Treasury Secretary?

I more wonder why, when asked, they don't tell him that maybe he should pick someone else, as their non-payment will surely be discovered in the vetting process.

The people Obama has chosen were required to sign the "ethics" statement, and fill out his "administration employment application".

Yeah...he came out and said he made a mistake when the 4th person he wanted for a cabinet position had tax problems and had to drop out. Didn't do it for the first, the second, or the third....who also had tax problems and had to drop out.
Oh, except for the one who is now the Treasury Secretary and running the IRS. He didn't drop out and Obama said that he was the only person that could do the job.
But, that's ok. He did it for the 4th.
