Why is it that when the words private property are used, the first thing thought of is house, land or car? Do Americans no longer consider their paychecks their private property?
Americans, there is triple taxation on every paycheck, every payday. The 16th Amendment allows Congress to take 100 percent of our paychecks. Our paychecks are our first piece of private property, because without it we wouldn't have a house, land or car. Our paychecks need defending from the hands of those in Congress who don't want to repeal the 16th Amendment.
The FairTax Bill in Washington, D.C., right now (HR25/S13) has companion legislation to repeal the 16th Amendment. Without private property rights, we have no liberty.
Do you have any private property that isn't currently taxed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, annually, semi-annually? Fair tax supporters are networking on www.FairTaxNation.com and FairTax.org. The Facebook page has 100,000 Likes. If you haven't taken the "FairTax Challenge," try it today. Get your paycheck and add up Social Security, Medicare and federal income tax withholdings. That total is what would be added to every paycheck, every payday with the passage of the FairTax Bill as written. If you consider your paycheck to be the federal government's first, no action is necessary.
Never miss a local story.
