Another Obama nominee has tax issues The nominee, Kathleen Sebelius, is up for Health and Human Services Secretary. The issue is is roughly $7,000 in back taxes she just paid. Sebelius says she made "unintentional errors". Giving her the benefit of the doubt, maybe all of these nominee tax problems should serve as a rallying cry for tax reform.

What is that I hear; a muffled but increasingly loud cry for a flat tax?
