It’s backwards. Only the house can originate a tax bill, and then they get to vote on whether it passes or not. The Executive branch cannot initiate a tax on it’s own.

“It’s backwards. Only the house can originate a tax bill, and then they get to vote on whether it passes or not. The Executive branch cannot initiate a tax on it’s own.”

You should be aware that the intentions of the founders and the rule of the constitution are completely subverted now. Take for example something called Obama care. The Bill with all of its taxes was created in the Senate. The catch was that they took a spending bill from the house and erased all of the text it contained(It had nothing to do with Health care). Then they simply inserted Obama care onto it and voted for it. Then sent it to the house. See how meaningless that pesky Constitution is?
