Former Senate Majority leader Tom Daschle withdrew his bid to become the new administration's Secretary of Health and Human Services yesterday. It seems he owed around $130,000 in back taxes for use of a company car provided by a health care company. Many Washington insiders are calling this a big loss for Americans. But do we really want someone in there who appears to already be in some company's pocket? And ahh maybe you should have payed your taxes a little sooner when you thought you might be considered for such a position?
I mean really Tom Daschle...really? Back to you Seth.
