When "We the People" havediscovered mistakes in the Constitution We have worked to repealthose mistakes. HR:25 is such a Bill. Titled the Fair Tax Bill it allows for a orderly progression from the current failed FederalIncome Tax (mistake). Passage of the 16th Amendment allowed the firstFederal Income Tax! Before this Amendment only "uniform"Taxation was allowed by Article 1, Section 8.
Below is an examination of the historyof our current failed Federal Income Tax and how it was firststructured. These are 1913 Rates after the 16th Amendment passed allowing the first Federal Income Tax. There were no deductions thetax was flat but graduated for income. This was because the FederalIncome Tax was sold as a tax on the wealthy that would not apply toopoor or middle class Citizens.
Note: $20,000.00 in 1913 would be~$476,000.00 in 2013 Dollars!
Nominal Married Filing Jointly
Marginal Tax Brackets
Tax Rate Over But Not Over
1.0% $0 $20,000
2.0% $20,000 $50,000
3.0% $50,000 $75,000
4.0% $75,000 $100,000
5.0% $100,000 $250,000
6.0% $250,000 $500,000
7.0% $500,000 -
These rates are well below the 10%rates proposed by some who oppose HR:25 and support a flat 10%Federal Income Tax. What are you paying today, 30, 35, 40 + percent?
Once the 16th Amendment passed, theunscrupulous Representatives and Senators behind the Income Tax pushknew they could increase the Tax rate or change the Wage & Incomerange. They would no longer be bound by the restrictions of theConstitution. The Citizens would be at the mercy of the FederalGovernment. In less than 5 years the rate more than doubled alongwith an expansion in the Income base! Note they have done this withimpunity since 1913! These unscrupulous Representatives and Senatorsbehind the Income Tax as well as many in Congress today knewmanipulation of the the Income Tax Code would give them great power.
Since 1913 this change in taxationpowers has allowed the Federal Governments, IRS to punish the Citizens of the United States with little or no restraint. The Income Tax hasallowed Senators, Representatives & Presidents to pay offcontributors and lobbyist using loop holes and special tax rateswhile striking fear in the harts of Citizens speaking out againstthese abuses. And now the Federal Government can use not only theIRS but Health Care as a weapon of control.
The 16th Amendment has allowed theFederal Government to become the uncontrollable parasite it is today. There can be no Federal Tax Reform without the repeal of the 16thAmendment to the U.S. Constitution! When someone promotes reform ofthe Federal Tax Code without the provision to repeal the 16thAmendment they are working to keep control in the hands of Governmentnot the Citizens!
We will be part of the greatest peace timepolitical struggle ever witnessed by the Citizens of the UnitedStates when HR:25 is put before the full House. There are Trillionsof dollars in favors and paybacks at stake. Don't be fooled, studythe history of the United States before 1913 and after. The greatestgrowth and prosperity for the Citizens of the United States occurredfrom 1776 too 1913. In contrast the Federal Government its Debt, Taxburdens and abuses grew exponentially after passage of the 16thAmendment which allowed the first Income Tax!
