Tax Accountability’s endorsement of Ron Paul for U.S. President was featured on
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul was endorsed yesterday by Tax Accountability of TAC, a Chicago-based national taxpayer watchdog organization.  Tax Accountability is the political action arm of Taxpayers United of America (TUA).  Founded in 1976, TUA is one of the largest taxpayer organizations in the nation.
The group’s president Jim Tobin wrote a ringing endorsement of the 12-term Congressman from Texas, who is the only candidate forthright about the constitutional and philosophical antipathy toward using the police powers of government to take the fruits of one person’s labor and distribute it to another as a condition of citizenship.

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Taxpayers United of America has asked Gov. Steve Beshear to let Kentuckians know how large some of the pensions are that state government retirees are receiving.
The group’s vice president, Christina Tobin, delivered a letter to Beshear’s office on Monday urging him to disclose pension payments being made to the retirees.
Tobin said her group calculated pension payments for many of the state’s highest paid employees and found that many could be pulling down more than $100,000 a year in retirement.
Tobin said Kentuckians have a right to know how much money retirees are getting. She said Kentucky is one of the nation’s most secretive states when it comes to pension payments to retirees, even though some could draw more than $1 million dollars over the course of their retirements.
