Most Americans want the IRS to confiscate money from the wealthy and corporations

APRIL 1, 2015

IRS commissioner John Koskinen said after a speech at the National Press Club that a Republican proposal to abolish the agency will not happen because the government needs a tax collector.

“You can call them something other than the IRS if that made you feel better,” he said on Tuesday following calls by Texas Senator Ted Cruz and other Republicans to eliminate the taxation agency.

In January 58% of House Republicans supported legislation to abolish the IRS and replace it with a personal consumption tax.

“The FairTax would repeal all federal corporate and individual income taxes, payroll taxes, self-employment taxes, capital gains taxes, the death tax, and gift taxes – and replace them with a revenue-neutral personal consumption tax. Overnight, the FairTax would allow individuals to keep 100 percent of their income without the government first taking a penny,” said Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.), who introduced the FairTax Act.

Other Republicans are floating taxation reform. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and Senator Mike Lee of Utah are pushing the Economic Growth and Family Fairness Tax Reform Plan.

Sen. Ted Cruz has suggested radically simplifying the tax process. “Instead of a tax code that crushes innovation, that imposes burdens on families struggling to make ends meet, imagine a simple flat tax that lets every American fill out his or her taxes on a postcard,” Cruz said in March during the rollout of his 2016 presidential bid.
