It appears that Ron Paul is against having Charlie Rangel leave the Ways and Means (Taxes) Committee due to his problem paying taxes.
As predicted, the Democrats stomped down Rep. John Carter’s resolution calling for tax cheat Charlie Rangel to be ousted from the Ways and Means Committee, which he chairs. A few Republicans crossed the partisan line, including Texan Ron Paul, voting to let Rangel keep his seat on the committee.So much for our one official Libertarian in Congress. Another reminder of why I am no longer a Libertarian. At least the Republicans in general make no pretense of being honest. Making them honest crooks. If there is such a thing.
Mississippi Democrats Gene Taylor and Travis Childers voted to kick Rangel out, and they’re probably still sore about the way Rangel insulted their state.
