HotWingConspiracy: 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.
HellRaisingHoosier: skullkrusher:sounds like the bill is directed at people who do have a job and still don't pay their taxesI realize that. And what will happen to their ability to pay bills/debts/loans/taxes when they no longer have a job?
Slaves2Darkness: ginandbacon: Because it's retarded?How so? A billion dollars owed by Federal employees it, does not seem retarded to me. Particularly when you consider that most of those, if not all took the civil servants oath.I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.Yeah, idiotic to fire people who swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, including tax laws, when they fail in those duties.
Slaves2Darkness: So let's see according to the article you won't get fired if you are making an effort to pay your back taxes and are in financial hardships. It is only those who have not paid, or are willing to make an effort to pay and get to the point where the IRS is using the legal system to compel them to pay.
Zeb Hesselgresser: Tax debts under dispute, on payment plans or those with liens filed are exempt. You have 6 months to either refute the governments claim, agree to an installment agreement, or secure the governments position with a lien.Sounds just awful.
pdee: The comments sure sound like "a Republican proposed this so it must be bad".So much butthurt.
cman: A Republican doing something about people not paying taxes and a Democrat fighting for those who dont pay their taxes? What is this, reverse day?
killershark: I think something is wrong with me because I'm kind of OK with this. Granted, I think there should be some exceptions
manimal2878: cannibalparrot: Does it still make sense when you consider the fact that back taxes could be owed due to an innocent mistake?/dnrtfa//not giving that bowtie-wearin' jackhole clicksWell, had you read the article, you would know starting the process to contest the taxes would shield you from the firing.
ginandbacon: Because it's retarded?
killershark: I think something is wrong with me because I'm kind of OK with this. Granted, I think there should be some exceptions such as military and you should get a warning first for any bills you didn't realize were outstanding. But if you're in a job that's really really hard to get fired from and getting a good government pension when you retire, you should be paying into the system.
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.
PreMortem: Until said employee is a military member Republican Presidential Candidate
