Follow up to the morning post

I heard today that the woman Obama chose to make sure the government was functioning well has also withdrawn. Apparently she didn't want her taxes to be an issue.

Wow--anyone seeing a thread here?

A couple of possibilities:

The vetting process for these people was inept.
A lot of people making a lot of money think that they can cheat on taxes and no one will notice.

Most of us struggle to get by on what we receive from our employers. Some of us might dodge on taxes if we thought we could. A lot of us meekly pay our taxes (unless we are Amish or have reasons of conscience for not doing so) because we trust that this is part of what keeps our society going.

We are part of the social compact--aren't they?
