A Century of Failure: Repeal the 16th Amendment
HOUSTON, Nov. 22, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Americans For Fair Taxation® (AFFT) announced today their support for Congressman Jim Bridenstine’s (OK-1) transformational legislation repealing the 16th Amendment to the Constitution.
“As the leading advocate of replacing our corrupt income tax system with a progressive, national consumption tax, AFFT is proud to stand with Representative Bridenstine in repealing the 16th Amendment,” said Cynthia Canevaro, Executive Director.
She added, “Recent IRS scandals repeat a longstanding pattern of political attacks, taxpayer abuse and business destruction by a federal agency that knows no boundaries, has no controls and operates without an ethical compass.”
“In 1913, Congress gilded the lily when they enacted the 16th Amendment, providing the most far-reaching and invasive Congressional failure still burdening the American people today.”
Added Bill Harrington, volunteer Oklahoma FairTax director, “The 16th Amendment is an affront to the American people’s freedom. The IRS has the ability to confiscate property and impose fines on every individual in the United States without due process. We are proud that an Oklahoma Representative has stepped forward to finally address this massive injustice.”
“With the introduction of this legislation, Congressman Bridenstine has given the nation a gift. Congress can continue feeding the special interests fatted calf while ignoring the gross injustices brought about by the 16th Amendment, or they can choose to enact this legislation and begin regaining the American people’s trust and admiration,” said Mrs. Canevaro.
