According to an article in the WSJ today, the Treasury's inspector general for tax administration said on Neil Caputos Fox Business Network, that his staff has found at least 53 cases of IRS employees filing "illegal or inappropriate" claims for the $8,000 first time home buyer credit.
It is more than evident that a large number of "people" will cheat from home, classroom, in transactions, through government to get ahead. As Fox TV channel reported on their recent series "American Greed", people cheat because they think they can get away with it and everybody's doing it.
Why would people trust our government? Elected and appointed officials lie so much to get elected or appointed, it becomes part of their human nature. Depending what group they are addressing or making promises depends on the group they are addressing. They are not consistent. When wrong, they adamantly deny they are wrong.
The Republicans attack the Democrats and vice-versus but when they get in power, they do almost exactly the same thing. That reminds me. Andy McKenna for Republican Governor? I think not. However, OI will support a Republican and my person of choice base on known facts, is Dan Proft.
No wonder people who think they are honest are angry. The question hangs like the last leaf on a fall tree, are the angry people honest, in what they say or do?
