Rep. Charles Rangel is the Teflon Rep! Even though he apparently knows nothing about paying his own taxes, he's keeping the chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee—which is involved with the country's tax code!

Republicans had drafted the resolution to kick Rangel out of the powerful position—Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) said, "The man who is in charge of writing the nation's tax laws doesn't pay his federal income or property taxes." The vote was 243 to 156, pretty much along party lines; Politico, however, notes that Democrats "Reps. Gene Taylor and Travis Childers joined nearly all of the Republicans" to vote for Rangel's removal. Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio)'s spokesman Michael Steel said, "These votes show that support for the Democratic Leaders’ decision to sweep this matter under the rug is starting to crack."

An unnamed representative from Rangel's office told Fox News the resolution was a "highly partisan effort... Let's look at this resolution for what it really is -- a highly partisan effort designed to undermine the important work in Congress on health care reform."
