How to End the Income Tax

Michael Cloud is the guest today on my one-hour radio show, the Downsize DC Conference Call. He and Carla Howell, proprietors of the Committee for Small Government, are leading the charge to end the income tax, via ballot initiative, in Massachusetts.

Yes, end the state income tax. Even better, replace it with nothing. I guess you could say, “Downsize Beacon Hill!”

How is this possible? What are the benefits? What are the chances?

In 2002, Howell and Cloud put this initiative on the ballot and garnered 45% — in Taxachusetts. But by state law, they’ve had to wait six years to bring it back. And now, they’re in the final days of a very large, complicated, petitioning process.

My friend Michael is my guest for nearly the full hour. I encourage you to check out the Committee for Small Government’s website.

And then, tune in.

Of course, we’ll also have a Gun Owners Update.

Call with your questions. That number is 1-800-259-9231.

Or you can email (and this is the ONLY address for the show) – CALL at DOWNSIZEDC dot ORG.

The show starts at 4:06 PM Eastern (3:06 PM Central, 2:06 PM Mountain, and 1:06 PM Pacific).

And the best way to listen is at

Happy Listening,
