The Obama administration has achieved yet another historic first by developing an extremely effective way to collect deliquent taxes, news reports suggest. All one need do is have the president nominate the tax deadbeat’s spouse to a cabinet position.
The White House discovered this fascinating new approach to collection science a few hours ago when Sam Sayyad, husband of would-be Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, coughed up about $6,400 less than a day after news reports surfaced that he owed the money.
Solis’s confirmation process had been put on hold, but who knows what will happen now.
We have a profile of Solis by Philip Klein in the current Labor Watch.
