Believe it or not, there's a GOP win story

Yes, I'm shocked too.

Congressmen John Carter (R-TX) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) yesterday introduced the Geithner Penalty Waiver Act, requiring that the IRS assess the same penalty against U.S. taxpayers that came forward in the UBS tax fraud investigation as paid by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner for failing to pay taxes on his IMF income -- zero.

Heh.  And Indeed. 

Seriously, that's the kind of political stunt that I love.  There's also a very serious equal protection point being made, either the law is the same for everyone or it's not.
