Democrats Plot a Tax Revolt Over Trump

Back in December, a writer for wrote that the 65 million people who voted for Hillary Clinton shouldn't pay their federal income tax until the country drops the electoral college, in favor of a system based on the popular vote alone.  Apparently, some think the idea is a good one, but not just for the electoral college issue.  Some people believe they should give their tax money to Planned Parenthood.  Others say don't pay taxes as a rejection of Trump's border wall.  Then, there are those willing to be potential tax evaders over the repeal of ObamaCare.  What about free college?  Gun control? Or, any other liberal agenda item one can think of?

The trouble is that a good amount of the taxes being collected go to the social programs that liberals love.  Payroll and self-employment tax helps fund Medicare and Social Security.  Other taxes help those with low incomes and support such housing programs and ObamaPhones.  Then, there's Head Start, Medicaid, Food Stamps, and the list goes on.

It is simply idiotic for a bunch of liberals who voted for Hillary, along with a lot of those social programs, to not pay taxes as a way to show support for the same programs.  By the way.  They may  also want to think about when the IRS slaps a 25% penalty on their outstanding debt. Or goes after their wages, bank accounts, or property.  Of course, there is always possible jail time. The IRS has ten years in which to collect from the date not paid.  That will be well past the time Trump could still be in office.

Hillary lost. Get over it.  No amount of laying on the floor, kicking and screaming will change that.  Not paying taxes won't change it either.
