U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Oklahoma) will pay a visit to Charleston, S.C. next month to speak at GOP gadfly Mallory Factor’s private “Charleston Meeting.”
Bridenstine is the lead sponsor of legislation aimed at repealing the Sixteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution – which gives the federal government the authority to collect income tax.
“The Sixteenth Amendment should be repealed and the IRS should be eliminated,” Bridenstine said in support of his legislation.
His amendment is at the heart of a national movement to ditch the income tax – one led spearheaded by the advocacy group Americans for Limited Government.
“The income tax constitutional amendment has been a one hundred year disaster for constitutionally limited government and Representative Jim Bridenstine deserves praise for beginning the process of repealing it,” ALG president Nathan Mehrens said. “The income tax has become little more than a Christmas tree of breaks, deductions and special interest subsidies which the powerful with lobbyists manipulate for their own interests and to damage those of their competitors. It is time for Congress to repeal the failed 16th Amendment experiment.”
We concur …
And if you agree, you can concur here.
Oh, gee, another GOP hack who spouts special interest talking points…because he never had the capacity for independent thought.
Ugh, was at Factor’s NY Meeting last week…Will, you should watch the video, Sen. Graham scared the hell out of people, but fmr. Va. Governor Jim Gilmore put on a show!
Things like this can’t gather any traction. You really don’t believe the IRS would let it affect them, do you? Much too much money and power at stake and it’s the personal arm of the potus. Y’all dream on.
Once again, what the hell is a gadfly? And what man would be named Mallory?

I would like to see an amendment which requires the top persons in the three branches of government to have their children locked in a cell for the numbers of days they are doing the business of the country. A mobile camera is attached to every one of the elevated persons. If, at any time the elevated person lies or uses his office in a suspicious way, his child will be subjected to low-level electrical shocks which are very painful, but leave no physical scars..
