Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Taxes

According to ABCNews, it is the duty of everyone making over $250,000 a year to keep making as much money as they can so that they can pay higher taxes. Well, they don't quite put it that way. They just call it a "dodge" to purposely make less than that to avoid the extra taxes.

So I wonder what they call it when a large number of Obama's cabinet picks made that much money or more and just simply didn't pay their full share? Which is the greater sin in their eyes?

According to the poll results, though, most Americans don't think there's anything wrong with "dodging" taxes legally. Good for them.

On a related note, Roger Simon emails to Instapundit:
“Why don’t we nominate everyone for the Obama cabinet? That way everyone will have to pay his or her back taxes and the IRS will be spared zillions in personnel, lawsuits, etc.? It might even lead to a balanced budget.”
