Obama Likes Tax Cheats Like Bill Clinton Likes Big Macs and Loose Women

It’s a freakin’ epidemic. Hilda Solis, a congress critter and Obama’s nominee for Labor Secretary, is married to Sam Sayyad. He has tax problems.

Geez.

Los Angeles County records showed 15 outstanding state and county tax liens against Sam Sayyad and his auto repair business, totaling $7,630. Two other liens worth $981 were released in 1999 after Sayyad repaid the taxes owed, according to county records.

Solis’ financial disclosures list Sayyad’s business, Sam’s Foreign and Domestic Auto Center, as one of the couple’s main assets, worth between $50,000 and $100,000. The disclosure form Solis filed after her nomination also lists bank accounts containing between $250,000 and $500,000.

Solis and Sayyad were unaware of the liens until USA TODAY asked about them Tuesday, White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said. He said Sayyad paid about $6,400 to Los Angeles County on Wednesday to settle the liens, but he plans to appeal.

How the hell are you unaware of tax liens? Seriously. You get notices. You get bills. And you are not aware?

What is it with these people? Are there any Democrats who pay taxes? Bueller? Bueller?

Nota Bene: And still we will not hear a single Democrat talk about simplifying our tax system. Oh wait, this wasn’t a complicated tax system. This was a flat out failure to pay an assessed tax. Nothing hard here.
