"Having Pelosi and Obama in charge of spending is like putting Arnold Schwarzenegger and ex-IMF President Strauss-Kahn in charge of hiring the maids. Buried in last week's news was a report from the General Accounting Office (I guess they don't do specific accounting) that thousands of companies which cashed in on President Barack Obama's economic stimulus package owe the government tens of millions of dollars in taxes. In a report released Tuesday, the GAO said that at least 3,700 government contractors and nonprofit organizations (I wonder what type of nonprofits those were) that received more than $24 billion from the stimulus effort owed $757 million in back taxes."
