If President Obama is serious about tax increases (sorry, I meant to say “spending reductions in the tax code”) and increasing overall tax revenue, he should start by first calling a cabinet meeting and ordering everybody in the room to pony up what they owe.
US Attorney General Eric Holder and his brother failed to pay the property taxes on their childhood home in Queens, which they inherited last August after their mother died, The Post has learned.
And because their ailing mom, Miriam, was already behind on two quarterly tax bills when she succumbed to illness on Aug. 13, the charges went unpaid for more than a year — growing to $4,146.
It wasn’t until The Post confronted Holder last week about the delinquency that he and younger brother William Holder finally paid up Friday, including $73.14 in interest.
There are plenty of ways to lead in Washington, but “by example” is usually the least desirable option. But It’s possible Holder was completely unaware, although you might expect a US Attorney General to at least be inquisitive about the tax obligations in something he inherited a while ago, even considering the unfortunate circumstances.
In language that might make Barbara Boxer care about things like this a little more, by not paying their fair share, Obama’s tax-lax cabinet members along with some of ma’am’s delinquent liberal colleagues in Congress could be doing untold long-term damage to Planned Parenthood.
