No more but no less than John Q Public behind on theirs.

At present, 78% (98 people) answered 'yes.' I'm one of the 19 people (15%) who said 'no.'

Why so punitive? Catch up in a reasonable amount of time and no harm done.

Because they are to set examples, make one out of them, stick it to them..

I'm a "no," too. Let the voters address this issue at the next election, and it's a legitimate issue. What are you going to do? Plus, his debts come through various entities that are not completely personal.

In the end, in a democratic system, the voters should choose. (if there's illegality, that's a different subject).

Really? Can you show us the evidence? What exactly is the percentage of politicians at all levels who are behind in their taxes? Or is this perhaps a statistic you are pulling out of your backside because it fits your right-wing, faux news-fed anti-government fever?
