(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?   ( divider line

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.

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.

So, as I understand it:

Poor people owe back taxes: fire them
Republican presidential candidate owes back taxes: non issue
 Democratic President cheats on wife: Impeach!

Republican Governor cheats on wife: Run off for the Senate!

Democratic President takes out two dictators with 0 loss of American lives: Tyrant!
Republican President takes out one dictator with 4000+ lives and trillion of dollars lost: Miss me yet?

heavymetal: Typical of the GOP. It seems the "solutions" they often propose either just shifts the problem elsewhere or creates a whole new set of problems. Look how the money Texas "saved" by cutting funding to Planned Parenthood was eliminated by the increased cost to the state of unwanted pregnancies by the poor. This will just take away someone's ability to pay back the taxes as well as possibly turning them into a burden on the social safety net.

that's because thinking more than one step ahead is for elitist hippies.

This bill makes as much sense as suspending students from school for truancy.

Lord_Baull: This surprises you? The cognitive dissonance that emanates from teabaggers could power the sun.

The shame thing is?  Since they inspect *our* site I can't say crap about it out of fear/knowledge it would piss them off.  Here are guys who will rant at length how government regulations and inspections are nothing less then Nazi Germany and are destroying America and unconstitutional and wastes of tax payer money and etc etc; and they're life long employees and inspectors in the DOL.

mrshowrules: 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.

The IRS can garnish your wages.  Non-issue.

I fail to see how a little sprig of parsley will help.

Great_Milenko: 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.

Geithner and...someone else (Holder?) were high-profile appointees that had something like $7,000 in unpaid taxes. When it came to light, they paid what they owed in full (pre-confirmation IIRC), but the GOP doesn't think that's fair.

manimal2878: 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.

I work with 2 - two! - such types, a libertarian and an anarchist, on a government-funded project (but we all work for a contractor, not the Feds directly). As in "there are government officials in our office/business group, we're paid via Congressional appropriations and we're subject to government contracting rules and oversight", and yet these guys who can't stand the idea of government big or small are overjoyed at earning their paycheck from it.

The Democrats should propose legislation that says any congressperson with debt - mortgages, car loans, anything - should be fired. Lets see how the Republicans react.

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.

HotWingConspiracy: 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.
