How should Obama and Congress go about ensuring that their own staff pays their taxes?

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/thousands-federal-wo...

"Data from the Internal Revenue Service found that more than 279,000 federal employees and retirees owed $3.4 billion in back income taxes as of Sept. 30, 2010.

The data showed that 467 employees of the House of Representatives, or about 4.2 percent of the workforce, owed more than $8.5 million. In the Senate, 217 employees, or about 3 percent of the workforce, owed $2.13 million.

Obama's staff was not immune, either, with 36 people in Obama's executive office of nearly 1,800 workers — about 2 percent — owing the government $833,970 in back taxes."

    Perhaps we should have a department dedicated to that very task.

    We could call it "The Internal Revenue Service".

    Enforcing the law on all Americans - especially those that should be serving the people. Seems there's a lot of self-serving going on in washington.

    I think the IRS should take care of that.
