The New York Post reported recently that the Rev. Al Sharpton owes the government millions of dollars in taxes.
The newspaper said Sharpton owes the federal government $2.6 million and the state of New York $900,000. His nonprofit, the National Action Network, owes $880,000 in federal payroll taxes.
Sharpton is in the top 2 percent of wage earners and wants people in that category to pay higher taxes. He apparently believes those rules do not apply to him, otherwise he would pay his taxes promptly like the rest of us.
We should send the Rev. Sharpton and others like him a message: Pay your taxes because we need the money to bring down the national debt. This is not the first time Sharpton has had tax troubles.
