This is how Washington works folks. Make claims that are patently false. On purpose.Yeah and, ya' know when this **** started? In 1913.
NINETY NINE ****ing years ago, my fellow boiling frogs:
In 1913, Wyoming ratified the 16th Amendment, providing the three-quarter majority of states necessary to amend the Constitution. The 16th Amendment gave Congress the authority to enact an income tax. That same year, the first Form 1040 appeared after Congress levied a 1 percent tax on net personal incomes above $3,000 with a 6 percent surtax on incomes of more than $500,000. A Brief History of the IRSYeah and, do you know how what the $3000 personal exemption was advertised as by the politicos of the time? Enough to live on.
Yeah and, ya' know how long that amount lasted before the politicos first bent the newly-coined taxpayers over the table? Till 1917 when it was reduced to $1000.
Yeah and, ya' know what it is today (it's close enough to April you ought to)? $3800.
LIES, LIES, AND MORE LIES.
Yeah and, by the way, Wyoming, GSABFDADIAF.
