Tax Problems Halt Labor Secretary Hearing

Who is vetting these people?

A Senate committee today abruptly canceled a session to consider President Obama’s nomination of Rep. Hilda Solis to be labor secretary in the wake of a report saying that her husband yesterday paid about $6,400 to settle tax liens against his business — liens that had been outstanding for as long as 16 years.

Let’s put this in perspective: Solis has been in Congress since 2001. How hard is it to vet an elected member of Congress? Obviously, pretty hard.

The Obama administration is rapidly becoming a farce. Do any of these Democrats pay taxes?
