Let's be clear, tax avoidance is legal, tax evasion is illegal. In the former you take your income and look for the legal ways in which the law allows you to keep more of it. Isn't that nice? In the latter you do what dozens of Obama White House folks do and EVADE the taxes. You either don't pay them as TREASURY SECRETARY Tim Geithner and White House employees have chosen to do or you hide your money like those drug cartels that the President sold guns to in Operation Fast and Furious. Capice?
Now the Presidents right hand man, David Axelrod is taking to twitter to suggest that there's something malevolent about tax avoidance.
Now, of course, the people who brought you the trillions in spending, million dollar stimulus jobs, and recovery summers 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 probably don't understand that. This is why they should be gone.
Still, it makes you wonder if this is the next gambit of the greedy, money grubbing Obama Administration: demonizing tax deductions. Sure sounds like it.
