KING INTRODUCES RESOLUTION TO ELIMINATE IRS
King Bill to Repeal 16th Amendment to Constitution
WASHINGTON - As W-2s arrive in mailboxes this week,
U.S. Congressman Steve King has introduced a
resolution to repeal the 16th Amendment to the
Constitution, which gives Congress the authority to
collect income taxes.
H.J. Res. 16 would eliminate the IRS and the means for
the government to collect income taxes.
"The IRS is an out-of-date, trillion-dollar-a-year
drag on our economy," said King. "Instead of
continuing to band-aid our complicated, leaking tax
system year after year, we can choose a permanent
solution and finally rid Americans of the fat leech
they feed their paychecks to."
King has been a long-time supporter of the FairTax, a
national sales tax placed on goods and services, which
would replace the income tax.
H.J. Res. 16 must be approved by two-thirds of both
the House and Senate, and then sent to the states,
where three-fourths must ratify the amendment.
