White House: Daschle Had 'Tax Issues,' Shouldn't Bar His Cabinet Confirmation Do as I say - not as do! It's okay! Being a tax cheat - until caught - is not a hindrance to dishonest public service is it? After all DHHS is really about stealing money from some people to give it to others who didn't earn it. Yes, Daschle is certainly qualified to head up that kind of operation! He'll fit right in with the others. It'll all be settled in the "closed-door" meeting of the Senate. Obama sure knows how to handle "change they can believe in"!
