Seems pretty simple. There are numerous other places to start pulling power, we just need to get started.
But too many want to use the IRS to attack people and silence dissent, so that is the main reason we still have the IRS. A flat tax makes too much sense and I have called for it for years, but won't happen for political reasons. We are the only country I know of with this idiotic tax system that most can't figure out, but we can somehow trust those that say they can.
