Cutting to the chase, right here, right now, is how our fine President can easily pay for the wall. The wall he is attempting to build and taking even more abuse for our nations best interests. This surefire solution which will pick up the tab on his wall is an idea I have been plagued with ever since he, in his obvious masochistic lust, took over the Oval Office. Other people might have suggested what Im about to propose. But the idea certainly hasnt achieved much mileage, in that I have not heard this from any other source. Here I am, in this day and age, actually claiming originality? But yes, I have lost my mind. Ah, but I digress
We do a federal income tax lotto. Heres how it will work. It is so simple and failsafe that Im surprised I thought of it.
Sadly, there are not that many individual citizen tax payers. If every one of us put in ten bucks, it would help, but that’s about it. And a lot of us (including me) would not do it.
Just allow people to buy plaques to fund the wall.
Have them face out and say “You entry prohibited by: Joe American.”
Fully funded in a year. Add in bumper stickers and T shirts. “I helped build the wall!”
The ONLY tax changes need to be TAX CUTS - FORVER!
What’s the big deal about the American people, us (U.S.) paying for the border wall which is absolutely constitutional. The border wall is constitutionally supportable and mandated if necessary to prevent invasion (U.S. Const., Art. IV, Sec 4). Illegal immigration and immigration of enemies is invasion.
How much of the $4 trillion federal government is unconstitutional and should NOT be paid for by the American People? 80% or more. That’s over $3 trillion that we should NOT be paying for. The wall is legit. Most of the federal government is not.
The ONLY tax change must be MORE TAX CUTS commensurate with massive GOVERNMENT REDUCTION!
I hope he goes full steam ahead with this idea. Make it $100 a plaque or full sections for $5000. Get a T-shirt a mug too.
Tax out of the country money transfers that are not payment for goods. The money earned in this country and not spent here drains the local economies.
Great idea, but too complex since some people are below an income threshold - which means they are not even required to file an annual return with the IRS.
Just make it a ‘straight’ lotto game. You mail $5 per lotto ticket (for as many as you want) to the Federal Lotto Admin. using your SS#. There is one winner a month - the prize is $10million. No taxes!!!
It would raise $billions and cost nothing.

Stopped serious reading right there - the "lotto-like" beginnings of the idea in the excerpt kept me away from the "meat" article.
