Proposal to fix the Federal budget

I think I figured out Obama's plan to "half the deficit." See, everyone thinks he will do it by raising taxes or cutting spending. No. He is much smarter than that and has come up with a plan that has never been conceived of before.

Obama is going to nominate every tax cheating politician for some cabinet level position thereby forcing them to pay the same rate they would try to force on the populace. The latest is Ron Kirk who was nominated for U.S. Trade Representative. Now Mr Kirk's tab of only $10,000 is small fries compared to what Tim Geithner had to pay back. But Mr Kirk obviously is not as brilliant Mr Geithner who is touted as the only man "smart enough" to understand TARP, and just so happens to now be in charge of the IRS. If Mr Kirk was that smart he no doubt would now be paying a bigger payment (tho no penalty)

Before I digress too much, I figure if Obama just keeps putting these people up for cabinet positions then he will have found himself a source of revenue no previous President has ever even known to tap.

Now for some digression...

If Timothy Geithner cannot understand the 66,000 page tax code, and he is the ONLY man SMART ENOUGH to understand a single (out of the many) bailout program, just how is ANYONE supposed to be able to comply with the illegal tax code? 66,000 pages is more than the Bible, the Talmud, the Koran, the Book of Mormon, and the Apocrypha put together! However, studying these books would take a years of dedicated study, and the tax code is revised every single year thereby negating any understanding one had previously. I refer back to the SCOTUS Doctrine known as Void For Vagueness "A statute which either forbids or requires the doing of an act in terms so vague that men of common intelligence must necessarily guess at its meaning and differ as to its application violates the first essential of due process of law." I mean, if some super brilliant person like Geithner is unable to understand this code, how is some lowly person like myself who is only 2-3 standard deviations above the average IQ supposed to understand it?

BTW, its been 9 years and I STILL can't find a law requiring the average American to pay an income tax. Nor have I seen any SCOTUS ruling that overturns their numerous rulings stating that the 16th amendment "confers no new powers" to the Federal Government, nor their overturning of the 1894 income tax as unConstitutional. (Hint: if the 1894 income tax was unconstitutional, and the 16th amendment conferred "no new powers" then the 1913 income tax is every bit as unconstitutional as the 1894 version)

Oh just read my previous rant on this. Nothing new to add really.
Or this rant
Or this one
And then there is this follow up to the one above.
