Law and Order Conservatives believe that tax laws are for suckers. Ignoring, skirting, and breaking those laws is admirable. See, for example, the adoration of The Deceitful Dodger, tax scofflaw. You and I paid more taxes on our modest incomes than he and his tainted brood did for many years.
John, the IRS agent, would work on a case for years. But he was dedicated—he felt that the rich should pay their fair share.
