Homework Help: check american government

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, October 26, 2008 at 8:31pm.

Why does the Constitution allow the Federal Government to levy taxes?The Constitution restricted the ablility of the Feds to tax and specifically forbids direct taxes like income tax, social security taxes and other payroll deductions. It was changed by Constitutional amendment. The promise was the payroll tax would never be more than 1% and would only apply to the very rich and would go away as soon as the cost of the Spanish American war was paid off.
