(The Daily Caller)   A new bill would require government employees be fired if they owe back taxes. Democrats on the committee opposed the bill. Hmm, wonder why?   (dailycaller.com) divider line 217
    More: Unlikely, back taxes, committee opposed, Elijah Cummings, Jason Chaffetz

Because it's retarded?

Cummings said. "It is much, much, much more difficult to recoup the delinquent taxes from someone who is unemployed."

Common sense?
 
2013-03-21 07:42:37 AM  
I thought people who owed taxes got their wages garnished or went to prison?
 
2013-03-21 07:51:04 AM  
they actually PAY taxes?

So Wesley Snipes and Willie Nelson can never be mailmen. That sucks.

Until said employee is a military member.
 
2013-03-21 08:31:58 AM  
Because its dumb? Should we fire every employee who has any crime or misdemeanor on their record?

Republicans never do anything anymore that doesn't have some ulterior motive, and they certainly never do anything just because it makes sense.  There has to be some particular person (read:  Democrat) who has a forgotten property tax bill out there somewhere.  This is targeted legislation.

Of course, the other thing they seem to be good at is passing bills that end up blowing up in their faces, so Boehner probably has a missed quarterly payment out there somewhere just waiting to be discovered.

So removing earning power from someone that owes money is a good idea because...well shiat some teabagger is going to have to walk me through this.

Because once someone makes a mistake in life, they must be punished and punished forever... unless it's me or my family then forgiveness must be swift and complete.
 
2013-03-21 08:47:36 AM  
Because they understand how this would impact military families, and they care about military families?
 
2013-03-21 08:50:12 AM  
Why are these people intent on making government jobs the wort possible jobs people could want?  Only ensuring that good talent goes elsewhere and the people that fill these jobs are from the bottom of the talent pool.
 
2013-03-21 08:50:33 AM  
They are probably just protecting the Republicans.  Later they will push through a bill that will allow more Republicans to marry.

I assume this deadbeat who's yet to pay up on his taxes supports this fullheartedly, and would be happy to explain.

Anyone want to bet that members of Congress would be exempt from this?

I would be more impresses if it also applied to congress critters.
 
2013-03-21 08:54:11 AM  
Meh.  Kind of makes sense to me.  Your job is funded by taxes, if you aren't paying them too, that's kind of hypocritical.

Makes me think of the Tea Party types that I work with, (I work in a .gov position)  they should also be fired or at least have the self awareness to quit.

Can't the Daily Caller go just one day without spraying so much liquefied chili shiat on the virtual walls that it makes me embarrassed to live on the same planet as the farknuggets who "Write" (for lack of a better term) for it, or at the very least refrain from licking their own spicy, dripping Pollocks up afterwards?

/That was rhetorical.

Haha, Oh Not-Joe the Not-Plumber, you captured America's distilled derp and parlayed it in to an exciting career of undermining everything you supposedly stand for. We all thank you.

Good. I am sure the GOP cares as deeply about the wealthy not paying taxes. Right.........RIGHT??
 
2013-03-21 08:59:48 AM  
Because Republicans are always fully committed to everyone paying their full share of taxes (so long as they make less than $50,000 a year)?

A lib getting butt hurt about being punished for not paying his taxes is like a conservative complaining about not being able to cheat on his wife.

How are they supposed to pay the back taxes if they don't have a job?

I was asking that when the EU was pushing Austerity on Greece.. 'Okay, so they're not paying back what they owe.. you want them to fire everyone?'

Does it still make sense when you consider the fact that back taxes could be owed due to an innocent mistake?

Cuz poor people won't pay taxes?
 
2013-03-21 09:11:54 AM  
The Democrats should propose legislation that says any congressperson with debt - mortgages, car loans, anything - should be fired. Lets see how the Republicans react.

Invisible Dynamite Monkey: Why are these people intent on making government jobs the wort possible jobs people could want?  Only ensuring that good talent goes elsewhere and the people that fill these jobs are from the bottom of the talent pool.


I think you answered your own question. Republicans can't get elected on platforms of "government bad" if the government is effective, so they do what they can to make the government as ineffective as possible.

The Democrats should propose legislation that says any congressperson who proposes legislation that limits your rights based on faith, sex, age, economics, education or race - should be fired.  Of course, it would be as useful as the GOP trying to repeal Obamacare, but at least you could see the GOP squirm and piss and moan, even some of the devout libertardians.
 
2013-03-21 09:19:50 AM  
And I'm sure that no Republican government employees anywhere owe back taxes.  Methinks they haven't thought their cunning plan through.
 
2013-03-21 09:20:02 AM  
I think it's a better idea to garnish their wages....

They could bottle subby's taint sweat and sell it on eBay as holy water, you know, if they were boostrappy and all.

Fark It: I think it's a better idea to garnish their wages....


You mean, keep them working so they can actually pay off their debt? That's just crazy talk.
 
2013-03-21 09:21:45 AM  
How about they oppose it because it's f*cking stupid and counterproductive.  Not only does inflicting more financial hardship decrease the chances that they'll be able to pay the money back, but it also means that all the training you've sunk into that person, along with their understanding of the job that came through experience just walked out the door.

Just a few steps away from indentured servitude, then the Confederate states can have their cheap labor force back!

The governor of Michigan appointed a manager for the city of Detroit.  Within hours it is discovered he had a lien against his home because of unpaid taxes.  Snyder quickly released a statement saying the unpaid taxes weren't a big deal.  Moral of the story, it is OK if republicans do it.

The fun thing is that they could totally pitch it as a "freedom" bill.  They could call it the Keeping America Safe From Sharia Law, Anti-White Racism, and Anti-Heterosexual Discrimination bill.
