It was on this date in 1913 that the 16th Amendment to our Constitution was passed. It gave the feds the power to collect income tax from us.

The original rate was 1 percent for folks who made over $20,000 and 6 percent for those who made $500,000.

Compare that to what you're paying now. And they keep coming back, asking for more.

No more tax increases. The government agencies need to start learning to live on what they already get. Just like the rest of us.
