Outrageous Statement of the Day

IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman says the IRS has launched a global program to target "high wealth individuals." Now, I have no problem with the IRS cracking down on individuals or businesses who are hiding assets or playing games to avoid paying taxes. I pay my taxes and they should too. But this constant semantic gymnastics irritates me to no end. "high wealth individuals"??? Just say what you mean. You are targeting the rich. Remember when the Obama administration changed the “Global War on Terror” to “Overseas Contingency Operations"? Grrrrr.
