All tax legislation must originate in the House of Representatives. As long as that chamber remains in the control of people who embrace freedom and liberty we should be OK.
If not, then perhaps those who would like to be rulers instead of representatives of the people should be reminded that the American Revolution began as protests over taxes, and became open warfare when the Red Coats tried to seize colonist arms.
"The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time by the blood of patriots and tyrants." Thomas Jefferson
My several-times-great grandfather was a Private, a foot soldier in the Continental Army, who fought for our freedom. The blood of a Patriot flows in my veins.
