Many Americans have dreamed and fantasized about getting the abusive IRS tax code, the over 70,000 page high stack of gobbledygook no “free” country should have to endure and Senator Rand Paul, a 2016 Republican presidential candidate, just lived out that fantasy by illustrating what would be the effect on the tax code if his flat tax plan is enacted.
“How would you kill the tax code?” the text of the video asks. Would you “burn it?” Or use a “woodchipper?” Or this author’s favorite, by using a “chainsaw?”
“My tax plan would blow up the tax code and start over,” Paul said as he announced his 14.5% flat tax plan in June. “President Obama talks about ‘middle-class economics,’ but his redistribution policies have led to rising income inequality and negative income gains for families,” he proclaimed.
Is there any real American who wouldn’t love to abolish the IRS?
