How about a list of Senators and Congressman ???  Rep. Charlie Rangel of New York owes more than 5 million in back taxes, as do 90 folks working for Obama, many of these tax scofflaws work in the White House and a lot of Federal employee owe millions in back taxes. A lot of these pukes work at the IRS!!!!!

what bugs me is the people who work in IRS owe taxes, the white house staff owe old taxes, congress owes old taxes.  and they go after everyone else.  if they would pay up the national debt would not be as much.

Here's the bottom line: If you want to live in the Greatest Country in the World you gotta pay your taxes. Don't like it? Move to Peru or Haiti or Sierra Leone and you'll see what a real s^&%-hole is like, where roving bands of armed thugs are the law of the land and a drink of tap water will almost certainly kill you. Here's a solution: make EVERYBODY pay their fair share of taxes, and here I'm talking about people like Dick Cheney who got a $3 million tax REFUND in 2003 or mega-rich TV evangelists who laughingly claim $30,000 in personal income but have 300 employees and 12 corporate jets at their disposal.. Simplify the Tax Code, everyone pays 20%, no exceptions, end of story.

The leftist rich fund the destruction of our culture and then refuse to pay taxes the government they wanted & those they have supported to be in charge and the uninformed voter follows along like an abused spouse.

This is the same crowd who support Obama and his "PAY YOUR FAIR SHARE" propaganda. Like I have said all along, these idiots believe in what is being said, so long as it DOES NOT apply to them. Because you see, they are among the elites, and need not pay more than what they want, just like half of Obama's staff and cabinet officers. Throw every elitist in the pokey for a few years and see how they like being treated like a common man is daily.

Do these people not have accountants and CPAs advising them?  How do you wind up owing so many taxes and ignoring the problem until AFTER the tax lien and public embarrassment?  Taxes are taken out of pay check.  I file federal and state tax returns every year and most of the time receive a refund -- not a real large refund -- but a refund.  Since the IRS seems willing to work with taxpayers, unlike the old days -- obviously these people are just ignoring their tax obligations.

Hard to feel sympathy for any of these individuals. They all had incomes that 99.999% of people only dream off. It's their responsibility to budget accordingly.  If you are making $5 million a year, you can't tell me that you are unable to plan ahead, put aside $1.5 million in the course of the year for taxes and other possible expanses, and live comfortably on $3.5 million a year.  With individuals like Cage, I am just baffled.  Guy was making as much as $15 million per movie and was making 3-4 movies per year. If you can't keep track of your money, hire someone who can.

Well, is this the same Aaron that Michael Jackson wanted to corn-hole back in the day. He gave Aaron a $300,000.00 Bentley, for you youngsters who don't remember, and his parents gave it back to Michael. Well, I bet he wishes he had went along with Michael's "pay to play," Aaron was at the top of his game then, now he's a has been... LOL

People making more money than most, are becoming delinquent on taxes.  What would they be doing if they were making income like the shrinking middle class?  Allowing them to declare bankruptcy only seems to allow them to steal more money and they end up with far more cash than any of us in the end.   Guess who ends up making up the difference?  That's right - the middle class and they still end up having a disproportionate amount more than we do and we didn't break the law or spend more than we could afford.  The rich keep getting richer off the backs of everyone else.

Again living too high for your pocket book and not paying your taxes will get you in BIG trouble.

Well entertainers as a whole think the rest of us owe them a living as well as buying their CD/s and DVD's, attending their concerts and watching them on TV etc. You will notice that a fair number are Black and that seems to align with the US populace, concerning non-payment of taxes. Well for the few that work that is.

I think Cage is better known for his lousy acting and terrible movies. He should be double taxed.

You make the money you pay the taxes,simple as that.  They just think cause their famous they can get by without paying taxes.   Do the crime,do the time.
