CONgress is a big money grab, and McConnell just happens

to be good at it. While not commenting on the worthiness of this project, it is pitiful that we tolerate the sacrifice of liberty in exchange for getting our money back, and with chains attached to boot.
Here's something to chew on...
If the same people who wrote the checks to the feds were the ones grubbing for the money from the feds, how long do you think this massive money-go-round would continue? Not long. If the State is writing the federal tax check, as per the Constitution, and the State is spending lots of resources to go get some or all of that money back, it won't take long for them to realize it is a fool's game, and start keeping that money at home.
Repeal of the 16th and 17th will accomplish this.

Undo what Wilson did
