The White House’s 36 tax-delinquents put President Barack Obama’s personal office in the top tier of IRS deadbeats.
The White House’s 36 tax deadbeats owe an average of $23,165.33, far above the average federal delinquent’s outstanding debt of $13,911.
The revelation comes two days after Obama used his State of the Union speech to declare that “we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.”
White House officials declined to comment to The Daily Caller.
Republicans immediately seized on the story to taunt Obama. “Before he launches this ‘pay your fair share’ game, maybe he ought to look at his own staff and figure out whether his own people are paying their fair share,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in Fox News interview.
The Executive Office of the President has 1,794 employees, and 36 people who are behind on their tax payments.
