re: Detroit Public Employee Pensions - Guess Who's Paying... - BaylorTiger
[quote]the city shouldn't skate[/quote] It has NO money to pay for it. They can't print money and they can't borrow at the level to meet the obligation. Detroit and the people in it dug their own grave. I feel the same way about the rest of us; we deserve the gov't in DC that we have. ...

re: SS, Treasury target hundreds of thousands of taxpayers for parents’ debts - BaylorTiger
Something is missing here. You are not legaly obligated to pay the debt. However, as someone mentioned, if there is an estate it MUST pay the IRS debt first before any inheritance is distributed. If you inherit the wealth and don't pay the oustanding debt associated with it you now owe it. T...
