There is a commercial I saw a couple of nights ago that really ticked me off. It starts with the announcer’s voice asking if you owe the IRS money. Then it goes to a series of scenes with people saying how much they owed and how much they ended up paying.
Here’s the part that gets me: each of these people owed large amounts of money. One scene showed a man and woman saying they owed a few million. Yet they ended up paying less than a million.
I pay my taxes in full. Why should these large scale offenders be let off? If they can’t manage their business to the point where they pay a known bill in full, they should not be in business. Like any other creditor, the IRS should be able to force them into bankruptcy for monies owed.
Apparently it’s the hard-working people of this country who get to finance the mismanagement of businesses who then get to brag about it to us.
