What politician is going to pen that?
What politician is going to introduce it?
What politician is going to vote for it?
Do you really think you can get a Complex Majority of Congress (3/4ths) to get on board?
It would be political suicide to touch anything having to do with making the IRS a legitimate and legal entity. Politicians are self-preservationists
above all else and can be trusted to look after their careers first and foremost.
Besides, as others mentioned, justification is another word for admittance of guilt. If a politician can't state definitively their stance on an
issue, do you think they are going to admit to guilt?
Lastly, it would represent double taxation (as it already does). Labor wasn't meant to be taxed and ethically shouldn't. You are more likely to see
politicians spout Tax Reform in either the guise of a Flat-Tax or a dissolving Income Tax altogether and going for a Consumption/Consumer Tax on
non-essential items and services (much like a Federal Sales Tax). You would still have to file with the IRS, to itemize exemptions like the purchase
of a first home, but for most, it would alleviate the paperwork, the frustration, and the financial burden...but those with 5 homes, a dozen Ferraris,
and a large caviar habit are going to be hating it (too bad for them).
