Does anyone pay taxes?

I have to ask with three high profile nominees having back tax issues: does anyone in this country pay his or her taxes? Completely? On time? Without the risk of public scandal?

Now I know that Tom Daschle's post-senate taxes are more complicated than my family's. My wife and I have never worked for the IMF. But we did have a household employee, and we (the my wife part of we) worked very diligently to make sure we always paid those taxes and kept good records. And we aren't expecting any White House nominations.
