Tax Code Overhaul

Journalists Roger Runningen and Ryan J. Donmoyer wrote for Bloomberg News 25 March 2009:

------------------------------------------------------------------

President Barack Obama is putting former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker in charge of a tax-code review aimed at closing loopholes, streamlining the law and generating revenue, budget Director Peter Orszag said. Volcker, 81, who heads the president's Economic Recovery Advisory Board, is being asked to take a look at the laws in an effort to rebalance the tax system.

------------------------------------------------------------------



They could start by reviewing the Constitution, especially the mandate that government was never granted the power to lay a direct tax upon the inhabitants of the States.

Funny how the cries of those who claimed Bush was trampling all over the constitution (and he was in some cases) are silent when President Goodwrench is doing the same thing. The Constitution is merely an outdated document according to our dear elected leaders. It's just a rough guideline that doesn't need to be followed anymore. This shit has to stop!

Was there a point to your ranting or were you just reminding us what an idiot you are?
