Another Nominee With Tax Problems
Posted on Feb 5, 2009
What exactly was the point of that endless questionnaire Team Obama famously had prospective worker bees fill out? A fifth Obama nominee has run into some controversy, the fourth due to a failure to pay taxes, although in the case of Labor Secretary-designate Hilda Solis, her husband is to blame.
It seems Mr. Solis recently had to settle $6,400 in tax liens on his business. Those aren’t exactly of Tom Daschle proportions, but it makes one wonder, given how rampant this has been among the select group of Obama nominees, whether anyone actually pays taxes.
No wonder we have such a huge deficit.
Beyond the tax issues, Republicans felt that as labor secretary, Solis would commit the crime of being too friendly to labor groups. How dare she?!
