No true. I'm not sure about the crooks big guys, but Nancy Killefer only owed $298 in back taxes, which she paid in 2005 along with $49 in interest and $600 in penalties.

Had to share this though we're (OK I'm) getting a bit off topic.

Today's Honolulu Advertiser ran a cartoon which (if I can describe this) showed the President's new plan to balance the budget. He's going to continue nominating folks to cabinet positions - and those folks will then have to pay their back taxes. Ok, ok, maybe you had to be there.
