Democrats and Taxes

It seems like the Democrats are the ones who are always looking to raise taxes. Could it be because some of them do not pay their taxes?

Joe Biden wants to take (steal) money from individuals supposedly making $250,000 calling it Patriotic to do so.

New York Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel, Chairman of the tax writing Ways and Means Committee, did not pay taxes on rental income and ended up writing checks to cover taxes due on his 2004, 2005, and 2006 returns. He did not pay penalties and interest in those payments but says he will if the IRS imposes them. The IRS should not only impose the penalties and interest but they should audit his returns.

Charles Rangel claims the Republican Party has declared guerilla warfare on the Democrats and has made efforts to smear him and members of his party. Is it a smear when it is the truth? He further stated that he made a series of mistakes that are unconscionable, but there was no intention to avoid or evade the law. Al Capone might have said the same thing.

The Republicans have called for the House Democratic leaders to remove him from the chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee but they have refused to do so. Apparently Rangel is unfamiliar with the tax code when it comes to paying his taxes, so why should he be in charge of that committee?
