.... and heart to heart, as a C.P.A. of some thirty years experience attacks ""excessive and unequal taxation"" in the form of the income tax from its formulation in 1913 when it was ""not needed"" on down. Whether in the administrative difficulties and injustices it imposes, in the evasions and frauds it prompts, in the emotional effects (many psychopathic cases and even coronaries) it produces, or in the fallacy of the ""inability to pay"", the menace of the tax-exempt groups, the expense of its operation (the cost of the Federal government could be reduced 50% if it were removed) this attacks this type of taxation from all sides and uses supporting evidence of sorts. Mr. Ward has his own antidote and substitute, a sales tax levied on all goods at the source.... A fiscal filibuster, mostly for businessmen, and a little higher mathemathics will help.
