[I] contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
~ Winston S. Churchill ~
At one time, American workers kept 100% of their paychecks. But in 1913 the US Congress amended the Constitution in order to bypass the original intent of the Founding Fathers and levy a direct tax on American citizens.
As Senator, I would introduce the Liberty Amendment to the Constitution, which would eliminate the Federal Income Tax and repeal the 16th Amendment, replacing it with nothing. This would give every American a 7-10% pay raise across the board and force massive cuts to federal government spending.
