This is getting ridiculous....

You just have to laugh...

WASHINGTON — The husband of President Obama's Labor secretary nominee paid about $6,400 Wednesday to settle tax liens that had been outstanding for as long as 16 years against his business, the Obama administration told USA TODAY this afternoon.

The disclosure came shortly before a scheduled 2 p.m. meeting of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, which will vote on Rep. Hilda Solis' nomination as labor secretary. The hearing was postponed; no reason was immediately revealed.

Seriously. HOW are these people getting away with this? Years and years ago soon after my Dad died ,the IRS said that that he had miscalculated the amount of a tax deduction of a large tract of land he had given to the boys club. They sent my Mom the notice with the penalties and interest attached. She literally fought them for years and she did get it reduced, but it was still a good amount and very frustrating.

So how do these Democrats get away with it?
