Even though registration is still required for the draft, I think it should be kept to make sure we never lack enough power to protect our country.

    The most serious problem facing taxpayers and the IRS is the complexity of the Internal Revenue Code because Congress uses the complex tax code to achieve political goals that are unrelated to raising revenue. Currently, tax revenue cannot even pay for government spending. Congress should simplify it. The existing tax code makes compliance difficult, requiring taxpayers to devote excessive time to preparing and filing their returns. It obscures comprehension, leaving many taxpayers unaware how their taxes are computed and what rate of tax they pay; it facilitates tax

Taxes on property are typically imposed only at the local level, though there may be multiple local jurisdictions that t

    Waxman And Democratic Process

    One concept of democratic representation is descriptive representation. Greenberg and Page defines descriptive representation as the entire populations are represented proportionally in the legislative body (2011, p. 330). They further elaborate that it is “highly unrepresentative,” in essence; the ideal descriptive representation would include far too many inclusions besides gender, race, age, and religion in Congress (Greenberg & Page, 2011, p. 330). Nearly impossible to incorporate all public concerns, the vast majority concerns are mainly represented. This suggests that minorities and/
