President Barack Obama is mulling a controversial new tax program that would require members of his Cabinet to pay taxes owed under the Federal tax code, the White House confirmed today.
While the unorthodox tax proposal is reportedly “only in the planning stages,” it is being eyed as a possible way to balance the Federal budget…
But imposing taxes on Cabinet members may be easier said than done, critics of the plan warn. “Remember, these people are not used to paying taxes,” said one White House source. “They are going to be hopping mad about this.”
