    So if it’s been 12 years that means it was never discussed during Obama’s era?

    This is absolutely ridiculous. I'm not paying a dime for something I had nothing to do with. Might be the issue that forces me to stop paying taxes. = file exempt!!!

    So lets assume that people are guilty until proven innocent and then still make them pay. Words can't describe how morally wrong that is. Not to mention that it turns the whole constitution on its head. I can't believe that this discussion is even happening.

    You idiots in Congress pass reparations and that'll be the last time I pay federal income tax. Federal prisons are chocked full already and you'll never be able to lock us all up. 380,000 Northern troops KIA in the Civil War was reparation enough.
