The Income Tax should be repealed. Though the 16th Amendment is said to give the power to have an income tax, the supreme court claimed that NO new powers of taxation were created. Taking money from one person to give to another is not claimed in the Constitution. An important note is only about 1/3 of the income of the federal government comes from the income tax. If, we had the fortitude to cut spending to constitutionally allowed programs, we would not need the income tax. It is that simple!
