Most Ethical Congress Ever Doesn't Pay Its Own Taxes
If they are the most ethical congress ever and the Ways and Means Committee chairman doesn't pay his taxes, does that mean that paying taxes is unethical? Can I go to jail for paying taxes? I'm pretty sure I could go to jail for not paying my taxes. So what's a confused guy to do?
Obviously Rangel needs to be straightened out by the Ethics Committee. But Nancy Pelosi won't name a chairman to the ethics committee. So the ethics committee no longer meets. Is this the only way this congress can be ethical: by procedural manipulation?
