The income tax as we know it today was implemented in 1913. That mean that no one in today’s workforce has known any other system of funding the Federal government. People just assume that the income tax is the only way to do it because it’s the only way they’ve known. And of course, the politicians in DC are all too happy to reinforce that idea in people’s minds.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. On today’s FAIRtax Power Radio, FAIRtax Guy Bob Scarborough puts on his history teacher’s hat and details how the United States got along for over a hundred years without an income tax. And when you see what new insanities and absurdities the Congress Critters are trying to put into the tax code, you’ll agree that replacing the income tax with the FAIRtax is the right way to go.
