Yes the Democrats are such law biding citizens:
As one leading Democrat put it: "Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter."
That Democrat was then-Sen. Tom Daschle in 1998. The same Tom Daschle, we've since learned, who failed to pay more than $100,000 in back taxes for perks he received as one of Washington's most relentless influence-peddlers -- that is, until he realized he might receive a job in the Obama administration spending the money most Americans conscientiously send to Washington.
Treasury secretary, Timothy F. Geithner, also failed to pay taxes he owed (even though he surely must have known he owed them) until it became politically expedient to pay them. Now he runs the IRS. Take that, suckers.
Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the supreme tax-writing body in the United States, the House Ways and Means Committee, is under investigation for, among other things, dodging taxes. His excuse for his admitted mistakes is that he was sloppy and ignorant, but not criminal. Geithner and Daschle make similar noises.
What does any of this have to do with Sen. Hernandez? You always seem to have trouble staying on topic. Do you suffer from ADHD?

From the 'THEY don't pay enough' file...

"...that the U.S. average marginal effective tax rate is around 40%. This means that if the average worker earns $100 from additional output, he will be able to consume only an additional $60."

"...indicates that raising tax rates further will significantly reduce U.S. economic activity and by implication will increase tax revenues only a little."

Evil rich white DEMOCRATIC people...

"In his book Who Really Cares, Syracuse University professor Arthur Brooks cited data showing that people earning more than $100,000 per year give away 3.09% of their income. But those earning less than $20,000 a year give away a lot more 4.58%. The average South Dakotan family gives 75% more of its income to charity than the average family in San Francisco.(South Dakotans are more religious and more likely to tithe.)"

white people are the ones that put Obama in Office!!!!Why are you making this lie up????
I see whites and blacks together all the time. My favorite performer is Darius Rucker who is happily married to a white woman and performs with an all white band and sings (sit down for this) COUNTRY MUSIC! I was responding to the poster who made the racist statement that blacks were doing all the looting on Staten Island. I simply pointed out that there are no blacks on Staten Island so the looters must be white.

Cars and knives serve other purposes. They are not specifically designed to kill people. Firearms are designed for that purpose only. Nobody but trained law enforcement or the military has any business having one.

Have you an opinion?

Throw the book at the one unable to control it's HATEFULNESS--and it's hands.

Like there wasn't law enforcement everywhere already--attending to the herd pack mob situation.

Cigarettes and firearms account for the highest percentage of health care costs. If they were both banned, health care costs could be cut in half. Christmas was designed to increase Walmart and other giant corporation's year end profits on the backs of their slave workers. If people want to celebrate it that's fine, but it should not be a paid Federal Holiday. What ever happened to separation of church and state?

Your ADHD is really starting to show. Who said anything about food stamps? We were talking about EBT cards. Retailers may not enforce it but the law states that you do have to show photo I.D. And you cannot withdraw cash from any ATM machine using one. The only way somebody could use an EBT card to buy drugs would be to buy some food and sell it or trade it. I doubt if you could get very much crack for a loaf of bread.
