I'd say that would result in massive hyper-inflation, plummeting the value of the dollar and putting people in a worse situation. The subsequent
sky-rocket living costs would also inflict severe pain and misery on everyone. I would also venture to argue that an abrupt end on all federal
revenues would kill millions dependent on government funding. To say that I support the preservation of the income tax is fallacious. Reform and
reduction in spending is the chief prerequisite. Unfortuantely, we are put in a quandary: The citizens have the ability to either continue or
terminate their contributions (taxes), but the government is the sole arbiter in approving federal spending. Essentially, the government must take
initiative actions in repairing this absurd system, and the citizens must then follow suit. Just my opinion though.
Edit: added quote, sentence.
