Okay but isn’t the 16th unconstitutional?
How is the 16th amendment unconstitutional?
Please, tell us you're joking.
An amendment to the Constitution is de facto Constitional.
yes, and there is evidence that it was not properly ratified!
The whole purpose of an amendment is to change the constitution. So if the income tax was unconstitutional before, the 16th changes it in such a way to now allow it. Of course this depends on the amendment having been ratified lawfully according to the dictates of the constitution in the first place.
