I'm still for a 10% flat tax rate across the board for everyone no more keeping reciepts and endless paperwork. You make a million you pay 100 grand. you make 100 grand you pay 10K. You make 10K you pay 1K. guess that would be too easy.. we could eliminate the IRS or at least pare it back. save alot of money.
oh yeah

Like most criminals, I'm sure he'll say he found himself in prison, so he can get out early cause of his good behavior.

Actually what she means, typo I gues but a "centrist", a centrist is a political person who is neither pro or con on a political subject, something to that effect, anyway not a word that is used everyday, by us normal people.

This man is human. He provided for his family. Educated his children and did not go on welfare when times got tough.

He got in trouble with the IRS and had nobody to go to but his family.

Let's try to remember that. He is no Madoff and he did not steal from clients.

Good luck to him and that he gets another chance,

So he has a few good qualities; so too did Hitler.

The fact is he broke the law, and will get a light punishment, because it's "just" a white collar crime.

I'm sure he'll get another chance, that's what this country is about. Let's hope he's learned the importance of society's rules, over the desire to hoard money.

The only mistake this guy made was that he didn't throw his hat in the ring to be Obama's Treasury Secretary. He's clearly qualified based on the recent selection.
