Episode 21: Grover Norquist Says It's Time to END the IRS
Did you know that many of the 13 colonies were founded as tax havens from the British? Or that our Founding Fathers declared independence from Britain because King George wanted to raise the 1-2% on colonial Americans to 3-4%? Compare that to the 33% income tax that the average American pays today! Did you know that the tax on your telephone calls was originally intended to be a "temporary tax" to pay for the Spanish-American War over 100 years ago? How did taxes get so out of control between 1776 and now?
Grover Norquist, president and founder of Americans for Tax Reform is coming back on the show to explain how America has strayed so far from our anti-tax, pro-liberty roots. He has a new book called END THE IRS BEFORE IT ENDS US: HOW TO RESTORY A LOW-TAX, HIGH GROWTH, WEALTHY AMERICA.
He says the IRS has gotten out of control and he has a plan to roll back taxes and promote economic growth with the eventual goal of abolishing the IRS entirely. That's right. Abolishing the IRS! He'll map it all out for us in today's podcast plus he'll provide tips on how every American can reduce their individual tax burden. This episode is a must listen!
