Democrats Keep Tax Cheat In Charge Of Tax Committee

Charles Rangel will be with us for some time to come, because the same Democrats who hounded one Republican after another out of office for nowhere NEAR the same level of corruption don’t seem to mind when their Chairman of their House Ways and Means Committee is a documented tax cheat, or when other members of the powerful tax committee are caught red-handed with $90,000 in their freezers.

Rangel is under fire for using a rent-subsidized apartment as a fundraising office, failing to pay taxes on income from a Dominican Republic villa he owns and using his House stationery to solicit donations to a school at the City University of New York that is to be named in his honor.

Republicans also accused him Tuesday of violating new House rules on earmarks by failing to put his name on funding for a rail connection between Manhattan and Kennedy International Airport.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “Democrats are leading the effort to turn the most closed, corrupt Congress in history into the most open and honest Congress in history.” She liked the ring of her own asinine ideology so much she said it again and again with varying iterations. “The Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history.”

To coin a phrase from a speech that Barack Obama plagiarized: It’s “Just words.”  Why do the right thing when it’s easier to say the right thing and then do whatever brings in the bacon?

Today “the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history” has two proven low-life slime balls writing our tax laws.  At this point the shocking revelation would be that there was an honest Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee.

To quote the former official “spiritual mentor” of the Democratic Party, this is a case of “the chickens coming home to roost.”  And may they leave their droppings all over Nancy’s favorite pant suit.

The next time some Democrat offers a finger-wagging lecture of how the rich “ought to pay their fair share,” just imagine the face of Charles Rangel, the powerful Democrat who cheats on his own taxes while he writes tax laws for everyone else.  And – to put it into the typical rhetoric of Democrats – just think of all those poor children who will go hungry and neglected because Charles Rangel wanted to keep money he owed in taxes in his own pocket instead of helping them.
