America does not have a problem collecting taxes. The problem is that America has is with spending. Until the out of control spending gets fixed, it wont matter what tax revenue reforms are put in place.

“Until the out of control spending gets fixed, it wont matter what tax revenue reforms are put in place.”

Absolutely. Our irredeemably corrupt and depraved political class will spend all the money they get from taxes, then write as many hot checks as they think they can get away with.

The issue is an out of control, unconstitutional, ever-growing, GOVT; be that local, State or Fed. When one can have an 'income tax', in direct violation of at least 3 OTHER Amendments (and still be 'legal/valid'); State/local flouting immigration/gun Rights, theft/graft at all levels....the spending is the EASY part. One only need read a few of the MediXYZ/SS threads here on FR to get any idea of just *WHY* ("I 'paid'...", "My ..."). $120T+ in UNFUNDED (aka Ponzi) 'liabilities', $20T+ in debt. Tell me again how we're the 'Land of the Free' and slavery was abolished. But, keep voting for the lesser; the (R) only speed us over the cliff @ 50MPH instead of the (D) @ 80MPH *rolls eyes*

Yes we do have a problem with the way taxes are collected.

Change that and people will vote for those who will spend less.

Stop all income tax witholding.

Stop all payment of property taxes through mortgage escrow accounts.

Have all taxes paid immediately before you vote with a check or cash.

You pay your taxes for the year, you get your ballot.

People would vote very differently.
