We all should pay fair share (correction: just you and me, they don't have to)

Our President told us that we all should pay our "fair share", including wealthy who in his view should pay more. (Which by the way means that Bush's tax cuts will soon go away for good and then we will really pay our "fair share".) If that's so, how come people working directly for him don't have too? And by that I mean people working at his house, White House.
"A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama’s executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven’t paid any share, let alone their fair share."
If we divide $833,970 by 36 we get $23,165 each. That more or less means that they didn't pay (or forgot to pay) any taxes. Can any body say Timothy Geithner? They guy who didn't pay his taxes and was reworded with a job as a top TAX man.
