The House to taxpayers: The law is for thee, not for me

Tax season is upon us.  Well, some of us anyway.  Here's a little news out the House via Don Surber to give you a warm and fuzzy feeling as you write that check to the US Treasury:

From Politico: “Legislation that would force government and Hill staffers to pay back taxes or lose their jobs was pulled from House committee markup today after Democrats hit the brakes. Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.), who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee that oversees government workers, told POLITICO he was concerned that the legislation would kick workers to the curb before it could be determined if the IRS had erred.”
For those of you not blessed to have a cushy, over-paid job doing government work, well, pay up sucka.  Catching breaks isn't for schmucks in the private sector.
