How is this even a question? ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, 100 PERCENT YES!!!! If a private citizen cheats on taxes, the government makes sure every red cent is paid back. As they should. Politicians NEED to be treated the same way. They STOLE from the American taxpayers. They should be responsible for paying every cent back. If they can’t afford to pay the money back, they can slip into and orange jump suit and pick up trash along the road like the criminals they are.
