Congress Has No Jurisdiction to Levy an Income Tax

The below session wording of Pennsylvania’s Legislature proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Congress cannot enact a income tax and apply it to the people living in the states. This is for the “Victory Tax” which was repealed after the war but the people were not told so the rape of the people could be continued. The present day federal income tax is this very same “Victory Tax.” I suggest that all reading this go to your state libraries and look in the archives in and around the year 1942 to 1944 to find the exact same type of wording that the Legislature had to come up with to collect the federal income tax. If as in the first WHEREAS the Congress cannot compel the State and it’s officers to collect the tax then it goes doubly for the people who are not political subdivision employees, but private men and women.
