    The eye opener for me was when Obama was putting together his first cabinet and, lo and behold, Geithner and Daschel were tax cheats!  It makes one wonder how many there are.  Meanwhile I'm watching 21 year old kids just get destroyed by the IRS for not paying self-employment taxes on a 2000 dollar 10-99.  They get a tax lien and marred credit.  Geithner?  The press absolved him of wrongdoing citing how difficult it is to correctly file his taxes because he earned income overseas.  Daschel didn't realize gifts were income.  They never would have gotten caught if not for congressional inquiry.  You know, two tiered justice.  I really don't believe in this lack of resourses bit.  They have no appetite for going after influencial people.

      The IRS has been getting really hardnosed about penalties, especially for the little guy.  In the meantime, people who owe thousands and thousands of dollars in tax get it bargained down through offers in compromise.
