I thought I heard Mark Levin saying [Wednesday’s show] that we need to have a flat income tax or the fairtax in order to get rid of the IRS.
I’m not sure if Mark really supports those two mentioned taxes, but if he does someone needs to point out a flat income tax will not get rid of the IRS, nor the evils we now experience under taxes calculated from profits, gains and other incomes.
And with reference to the “fairtax”, H.R.25 proposes to create two new federal tax collecting agencies, an “Excise Tax Bureau” and a “Sales Tax Bureau“
The Excuse Tax Bureau would ***“administer those excise taxes not administered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms”***. Note that there are countless Excise taxes which are calculated from “incomes”, one of which was the Corporate Excise Tax of 1909. This of course would allow progressives to eventually leach another tax from small business owners in addition to the alleged fairtax, and would require two separate sets of books for business owners to keep which would be audited by the feds___ one for the alleged fairtax, and one for any excise taxes concocted by Congress which may be calculated from profits, gains and other “incomes”.
In addition, a “Sales Tax Bureau“ is the other federal tax collecting agency proposed to be created under the FT, and would administer the alleged fairtax in any state Congress may arbitrarily decide to administer the tax in.
In other words, under the alleged fairtax the American People will be subject to three tax collecting agencies to fill the national treasury: the Excise Tax Bureau, the Sales Tax Bureau and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms!
In order to rid ourselves of the miseries of taxes calculated from incomes, whether it be laid as an excise tax or “income tax“, we would need to add the following 32 words to our Constitution.
The Sixteenth Amendment is hereby repealed and Congress is henceforth forbidden to lay
any tax or burden calculated from profits, gains, interest, salaries, wages, tips, inheritances or any other lawfully realized money H.R.25 does not propose to do this!
Additionally, H.R. 25 also proposes to put every American Family on the public dole with its “family consumption allowance” which is a monthly entitlement check sent to every household to be used to purchase a rationed amount of tax free necessities of life, which would make voters with limited economic means extremely dependent upon the federal government for this monthly subsistence check!
Were we not warned in the Federalist Papers that control over a man’s subsistence amounts to a power over his will? And how many “poor working people” would have a vested interest in voting for progressives who would promise to increase the family consumption entitlement during federal elections if we had the so called “fairtax” and its family consumption entitlement?
There are a number of other major problems with the alleged fairtax which I will not get into now. Aside from that,. I am fully on board with Mark Levin in wanting to get rid of the IRS once and for all, and that is why I propose doing so by adding the above mentioned 32 words to our Constitution which would in fact end all taxes calculated from incomes and bring us back to our Constitution’s ORIGINAL TAX PLAN as our founders intended it to operate.
Reaching across the aisle is Washington Newspeak for a bipartisan agreement to subvert the Constitution and screw the American People.
