Tax History Project -- News Analysis -- Why Repealing the 16th Amendment Probably Wouldn't Matter

Amber Bayham's insight:

This article claims that the 167th amendment is "unecessary" in this day and age, and is a "holy grail" (or something of great importance) amongst conservatives. Conservatives believe it's unecessary because the federal government would be able to survive repeal. In my opinion, I am shocked that most people agree with wanting to repeal.

GOP Rep proposes repeal of 16th Amendment

GOP Rep proposes repeal of 16th Amendment | Amber Bayham - 16th Amendment | Scoop.it
A Republican congressman has filed a bill to repeal the 16th Amendment, which allows the federal government the authority to collect an income tax. Oklahoma Republican Rep.
Amber Bayham's insight:

Oklahoma Republican representitive Jim Bridenstine wants to repeal the 16th amendment in the order to get rid of the federal tax code. He feels as long as the 16th Amendment is in place and lobbyists dominkate Washington, alternatives won;t be considered. I think this decision may be too unconsitutional for others to consider and repeal the 16th amendment, since it has been a part of our Bill of Rights for far too long.
