Don't you get it? The scoundrels at Jeckyl Island who owned 1/6 of the WORLD at that time, needed to get the 16th Amendment in place so they could print money ad infinitum and use the IRS as our Gestapo-our police state.

Rapscallions have been manipulating the system for at least 100 years through lies, lies and more lies, with the courts in cahoots. When, oh when, will we arise and get these evil people out and our Constitution back? When is the word TREASON going to be used???

When the law was written, its supporters assumed states would be eager to participate and get access to enormous subsidies from federal taxpayers. Instead, more than half the states challenged the constitutionality of the law in court, and at least that many are likely to refuse to set up the so-called exchanges through which the new entitlement subsidies flow.
