Congress legislates, the rest of the country follows. As I understand it, that includes the executive as well as the judiciary branches of the government.
Let’s not forget that. IRS is a small entity, but let’s face it, it has one of the biggest responsibilities of the many institutions this country has.
The famous slogan “No taxation without representation” has always held true, no matter what the politics of the day was.
But the reverse is true as well. Without taxation, the representation can very seldom be effective, if at all.
News media have reported that
A man crashed a small plane Thursday morning into a seven-story office building in Austin, Tex., that houses offices of the Internal Revenue Service. The guy was reportedly a software engineer. That means he was educated but seemingly not enough to know the difference between the designer and the implementer. Designing and implementing are the two important aspects of software development.
Apparently, the guy left a note on his website. New York Times Online reported that “The note related a long history of financial difficulties and frustrations with the nation’s tax and health care systems and with setbacks like the sharp decline of defense-related employment in southern California in the 1990s and the disruption of air travel after the Sept. 11 terror attacks in 2001.”
Moral of the story
If taxes are necessary, then American people obviously would want their own assemblies to design and let IRS impose them. Congress has created many federal agencies to implement its design of a variety of subjects. IRS is the one that U.S. Congress has given the duty of implementing the tax systems.
If anyone has grievances about the tax system, and I believe almost everyone has, they should talk to and write to their own constituent Congressman or Senator and let them know of their grievances.
The individuals working for IRS are just that, individuals, trying to make some kosher money to put some food on the table for the family.Facebook.com/doable.finance
