The Other Big Hole

Today’s Suppreme Court decision highlights another seldom talked about hole in the Constitutional fence. We all know about the Commerce Clause, but no one talks about tax code. While the 16th Amendment gives the Federal government the power to tax income, was the intent behind it to give the government the power to manage its citizens’ behavior through the vehicle of tax code? If the Federal government can tax any behavior it wants at any level it wants, it has absolute control over all behavior. Today’s court decision proves that.
