16th amendment!!

This is a video teaching a few things about the 16th amendment. It was made for my government class!
dominiquea trotter's insight:

Since thirty-six states were needed for ratification, the failure of thirteen to
ratify was fatal to the Amendment. This occurs within the major first three of each in defects in the ratification of the 16th amendment
Even if we were to ignore defects of spelling, capitalization and punctuation, we
would still have only two states which successfully ratified.

dominiquea trotter's insight:

The Congress may impose taxes on income from any source without having to apportion the total dollar amount of tax collected from each state according to each state's population in relation to the total national population. Also Federal courts have ruled that the Sixteenth Amendment allows a direct tax on wages, salaries and commissions without apportionment

16th amendment

dominiquea trotter's insight:

O’Donnell tells on why Republicans shouldn’t quote Lincoln on taxes.Abraham Lincoln is also the only Republican president,and the only president, who has ever gotten a Republican House of Representatives to raise income taxes. Raising taxes is just making most difficult to live. I think the people in the 1% should help out those who struggle to keep a roof over there head and work hard everyday.

Definition of 16th Amendment in the Legal Dictionary by TheFreeDictionary.com
dominiquea trotter's insight:

This amendment was about income tax, and on June 16, 1909, and the states ratified it in 1913. President Willam Taft in an address to Congress, proposed a 2% federal on income tax and a constitutional amendment to allow the previously enacted income tax. It is immaterial with respect to income taxes, whether the tax is a direct or indirect tax

Congress passed the amendment in 1909. The states ratified it in 1913. It overturned a supreme court decision that ruled a 2% federal flat tax on incomes over $4,000. The decision was suprising becuase a federal income tax levied during the civil war had not been struck down.

Yes, the U.S. government did at one time run large budget surpluses, and the revenue was generated without resorting to an income tax. by Thomas R. Eddlem
dominiquea trotter's insight:

This year is the 100th anniversity of income tax,the U.S. government paid off its entire national debt without the existence of an Internal Revenue Service. Income tax has made a massive transfer of wealth from the productive to the unproductive possible, the incentives, through thousands of deductions and tax credits.

Times writers group: Let's be open to embrace changes | 16th Amendment | Scoop.it
As we enter 2013, the world of a century ago, 1913, seems impossibly distant. But there are doubtlessly some centenarians in Stearns County who still harbor memories of the nineteen-teens.
dominiquea trotter's insight:

The nation’s first minimum wage law went into effect in Oregon in February, the most significant political change of 1913 was the ratification of the 16th amendment. This talks about how nearly one in five residents were born outside of the United Staes. Also shows the relationship between federal government  and its citizens by increasing service,tac and social challenges.

The sixteenth amendment made a economical impact. It became and amendment through a series of events. Farmers made several groups because they suffered from low prices for their products. They had to pay high prices for manufactured goods. They formed politicial groups like the Grange, The Greenback Party, The National Farmers Alliance, and The Peoples Party. These groups helped set the 16th amendment into play.
