I want to ask this..if the witholding tax was repealed in 1944 by congess, then why is it still in force?
It actually was repealed and reinstituted several times. The last action being the reinstitution of it obviously.
What I want to know is how is our war with Spain going? I haven't heard any reports from the front lately and frankly I am nervous we may be in a quagmire.
What? Were not at war with Spain? Then why am I paying a tax on my phone to pay for the Spanish-American war?
They are withholding that information. :-)
Also, what about the Gramm-Rudman Bill that was to eliminate deficit spending? It is just being ignored, I think.
I know nothing about that and I share your healthy skepticism of the government but we are now in the best position we have ever been in to actually get something done. This is not a modification, it truly is a revolution.
In addition to the obvious advantages, think about all the financial instruments and derivatives that are based on avoiding or deferring taxes. All those can now be eliminated and we can put our money to better use in other ways.
