Looks like Mr."Fair Share"own people owe $833,000 in back taxes"

When Obama whines that everyone must pay their “fair share,” he must not mean those working in his administration. Obama has had a tendency to hire those who refuse to pay their fair share. How embarrassing this must be for President Obama, whose major speech theme so far this campaign season has been that every single American, no matter how rich, should pay their "fair share" of taxes. And according to Andrew Malcolm of IBD, a new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama's executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes.

Previous reports have shown how well-paid Obama's White House staff is, with 457 aides pulling down more than $37 million last year. That's up seven workers and nearly $4 million from the Bush administration's last year.

The biggest tax offenders also include employees of the U.S. Senate who help write the laws imposed on everyone else. They owe $2.1 million.

The country's chief law enforcement agency, the Department of Justice, has 2,069 employees who are nearly $17 million behind in taxes. Like Operation Fast and Furious, Attorney General Eric Holder has apparently missed them too.
