Nov. 18, 2013, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement praising Rep. Jim Bridentstine (R-Okla.) for a proposal to repeal the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that created the national income tax:
“The income tax constitutional amendment has been a one hundred year disaster for constitutionally limited government and Representative Jim Bridenstine deserves praise for beginning the process of repealing it.
“The income tax has become little more than a Christmas tree of breaks, deductions and special interest subsidies which the powerful with lobbyists manipulate for their own interests and to damage those of their competitors. It is time for Congress to repeal the failed 16th Amendment experiment.”
