Members of Congress: Abolish IRS

Members of Congress: Abolish IRS
 
Proposal would specifically take away authority to tax income

It happens rarely. A taxpayer challenging the constitutional basis for the income tax wins  in court, defeating the Internal Revenue Service, such as in the case brought by the late Tom Cryer, who was acquitted on a charge of failing to pay $73,000 to the government.
 
Now three members of Congress want to make that result the norm through a bill that  would repeal the 16th Amendment, effectively canceling federal income taxes.
 
Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Okla., argues the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the “right of people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”
 
The 16th Amendment, he contends, effectively negates the Fourth Amendment.
 
“The 16th Amendment should be repealed, and the IRS should be eliminated,” he declared.
 
Along with Reps. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and Thomas Massie, R-Ky., Bridenstine has introduced House Joint Resolution 104, “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the 16th article of Amendment.”
 
“Viable alternative plans for raising revenue fairly to support constitutionally enumerated functions of the federal government have been proposed,” Bridenstine said. “As long as the 16th Amendment is in place and lobbyists dominate Washington, these alternatives will never be considered.”

If the GOP really wants to make the 2016 elections meaningful, they should add this as a plank to the platform
