According to the Los Angeles Times, in 2010, federal employees in total, owed approximately one billion dollars in back taxes, with $831,000 owed exclusively by individuals working In the White House. If that’s not sufficiently troubling, nearly eight million dollars was owed by just over 1,200 Treasury employees[i] – you know – Treasury. This is the Dept. running the Internal Revenue Service!
