Abolish Federal Income Tax
Withholding and Learn the True Cost of Government
and Senate leaders of both political parties talk about
We urge them to work for passage of H.R. 1364 so
‘fiscal responsibility’ will become reality; not
rhetoric,” stated Kent Snyder of The Liberty Committee.
1364 – The Cost of Government Awareness Act was introduced
by Representative Ron Paul (Texas) on April 3, 2001.
The bill would eliminate federal withholding tax
would no longer be required to collect taxes for the
Internal Revenue Service.
Employees would receive their full paycheck and then
pay their tax bill directly to the Internal Revenue Service
as they do their other monthly bills.
"The government's premise is simple: the taxpayer
won't miss the money he never sees.... The goal of
withholding is to make the taxpayers less aware of how much
they really pay each month to fund our massive federal
government,” stated Representative Ron Paul in an April 4,
2001 press release.
The Liberty Committee is sponsoring a petition addressed to
the U.S. House and Senate leadership asking them to work for
passage of H.R. 1364. The
petition can be found at http://www.thelibertycommittee.org/taxpetition.htm
“On C.B.S. 60 Minutes II, Tuesday, April 3rd, I.R.S.
Commissioner Charles Rossotti stated, ‘We have a Congress
and everybody has the right to go talk to their congressman
or senator about what they like and don't like about the tax
code.’ We agree and that's what we are going to
do,” stated Kent Snyder.
Committee is a nationwide, grassroots organization of over
54,000 Americans whose goal is to restore the national
government of the U.S. to its constitutional limitations.
