The same people enjoying taxpayer dollars to fund their government jobs aren't paying their fair share of the taxes. Federal employees failed to pay $3 billion in income taxes 2008.  That's astonishingly better than the $3.5 billion they failed to pay in 2007. Here's some specific offices with the amounts they owe:
  • Executive Office of the President (includes the White House): 50 employees owe $812,917;
  • U.S. Senate: 231 employees owe $2,469,026;
  • U.S. House of Representatives: 447 employees owe $5,809,631;
  • U.S. Tax Court: 3 employees owe $39,752;
  • Active Duty Military: 27,111 employees $102,474,672.
