All this tells me is how the government is taxing us to death. That they can collect all this money and still claim to be broke shows how they do nto know how to budget the billions we are forced to hand over to them annually.

Back in the early 80's I was on the USS Midway CV-41...haze gray and underway in the "IO"(Indian Ocean). I get a big manila enevelope from the IRS, they were busting my chops for $260.
Orignally I owed $180 but with interest it's was now up to $260. They said I should mail in the $260 ASAP to avoid further interest. I also could report to the nearest IRS Office within 60 days. I sent them the $260.
Whenever I see folks owing the IRS thousands of $$$ and for many years no less! IT P I S S E S ME OFF!!!

If you both read the story, it was the state of California, NOT THE IRS, that published those that have a tax debt...

If all Californians were to pony up 20% if income instead of 10%, the great State of Cahleeefawnia would find a way to spend all of that, and then some.
All elected officials are too emboldened with power to stop spending. We're too busy working overtime to watch what they're doing.

Spending will only stop:

1) When the bond holders realize they aint gettin' their money back, and stop lending money.

2) When these profligate spenders are terminated, either by natural causes or by angry mobs

Oh, I guess these people wouldn't have any trouble getting selected by Obama for a cabinet post, since they apparently are well-qualified (i.e. tax cheats).
