Cost of Government - Tax Withholding
||April 7, 2001
Dear liberty activist,
Government dishonesty is nowhere more evident than in the
both in the way the American citizen was conned into
accepting it, and
in the way so much tax money is currently being
deception of withholding.
"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
government...," stated Representative Ron Paul.
Tax bureaucrats have been only too successful in lulling
to sleep. That is why Representative Ron Paul
introduced H.R. 1364 -
The Cost of Government Awareness Act on April 3, 2001.
H.R. 1364 will end federal income tax withholding.
Once employers are free of the burden of tax collecting for
state and we productive Americans begin to write checks to
government along with our other monthly bills, the true cost
we pay to fund our massive federal government will jump out
at us. An
enlightened debate on spending and tax reform can then begin
millions of once-unaware Americans can voice their opinions.
Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of politicians and
threatening to cut off the seemingly endless flow of money
Washington. They will fight passage of H.R. 1364,
because, even though
it is a small first step, our success would mean the
beginning of the
end of taking the American taxpayer for granted.
If any part of you is hesitant about ending the deception of
and igniting a nationwide debate on the true cost of
read the compelling "Finding and Purpose" section
of H.R. 1364 at
Because we are stronger, with over 54,000 of us working
activists through The Liberty Committee, we can take on this
battle. Here are three things you can do:
1. House and Senate leaders of both political parties
"fiscal responsibility." Passage of H.R.
1364 will substantially make
"fiscal responsibility" a reality; not rhetoric.
Add your name to our
petition addressed to the House and Senate leadership.
2. Ask your U.S. representative to cosponsor and work
for passage of
H.R. 1364. Go to
3. Spread the word among your friends. Ask them
to do these three
Then wait for the explosion. Once productive Americans
month after month, with the now-hidden price they pay for
the debate we are calling for will begin for real -- thanks

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.
