While the media obsesses over Donald Trump’s taxes, principled libertarians like former Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) says the real problem is that the federal government believes it has a right to what someone earns.
Paul appeared on Fox Business on Monday to discuss the nature of income tax.
“The real unconstitutionality of the tax code and the income tax is the way they collect it,” Paul said. “It assumes you’re guilty until proven innocent and that turns the constitution on it’s head.”
Repealing the income tax was a position that Paul often championed both in Congress and during his three runs for the White House. He even mocked Mitt Romney for saying that half of America didn’t pay taxes.
