    ….Washington’s individual income tax and its enforcement agency, the IRS, cannot be fixed, repaired, reformed or rehabilitated. They are a cancer eating away at this nation, her taxpayers and our economic engine.

    Congress created the income tax in 1913, and for 100 years the IRS has operated exactly as intended, as an agent of control with total impunity, even down to the political targeting of individuals and groups.

    After all, Congress and Washington’s finest lobbyists — many of whom previously served as members of Congress or congressional support staff — made it possible for IRS bureaucrats to write all 73,954 pages of the tax code.

    In combination with IRS enforcement, the income tax is the perfect mechanism for Congress to exact control, fund hidden political agendas, stuff campaign coffers and gain entree into an elite millionaires club.

    Wall Street Journal columnist and former Reagan presidential speechwriter Peggy Noonan wrote in January:

    “Someday history will write of our era, and the biggest scandal will be the thing we accepted in our leaders; chronic and endemic selfishness. History will be hard on us for that.”

    That said, the American people clearly are fed up. They are tired, demoralized and collapsing from a tax code and enforcement agency that does Congress’ bidding while plundering earnings and destroying individual lives and businesses…..

    The IRS is not necessary except for political power and power hungry maniacs will not give it up. They all need to go along with the IRS.

    I contend the IRS can be fixed - if a POTUS and a Congress that would put its foot down.

    Does anyone have any information concerning the ROI for running the IRS?

    What does it cost to run the IRS compared to what it brings into the US Treasury?
