One more with tax problems, and after the last bout, perhaps there was just not enough time to have these items audited in time.  The last imagestatement here some what says it all about our tax code being so complex that anybody could have tax problems, which is true, but double check before you are nominated I would say. The one danger of a statement though of such is that I could come along too and say “out insurance code is so complex that anyone could have insurance problems”…not!  This is directed for the consumer, as it is not our fault with insurance, but rather the shoe is on the other foot having to deal with the complexities of the reimbursement world of managed/unmanaged care. 

Anyway, to get approved via the hearings, pay taxes and don’t shoplift, as today’s business intelligence software will find you.  I just want the “smart people” in those positions and I had my reservations from the start on what hands on knowledge she had relative to business intelligence and the Health IT World since about 70% of the job today revolves around Health IT.  Perhaps lacking a little hands on, as data folks know this is going to tracked, your whole life’s data trail, so clean it up, before it comes to being in the media by all means, the transparency of business intelligence is here.  BD 

Sebelius and her husband, Gary, a federal magistrate judge in  Kansas, paid $7,040 in back taxes and $878 in interest on a handful of charitable donations, a home loan and other business expenses from 2005 through 2007. Sebelius said in a letter sent to committee leaders that the couple had “immediately corrected” the mistakes, which were discovered by an accountant hired to review their taxes in preparation for her nomination as HHS secretary.
Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), a member of the Senate Finance Committee, said he would question Sebelius about the tax issues on Thursday during her official nomination hearing to determine whether or not they were honest mistakes. “That’s really the threshold I look for,” Ensign said. “Our tax code is so complex that anybody could have tax problems. However, some of the people in the past should have known about them.”
