The ‘Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act’ (MAP-21) is so crammed full of unconstitutional provisions that even the mainstream media is up in arms, with an Investors Business Daily editorial describing the section that allows the IRS to revoke passports of accused tax delinquents as “Stalinist”.
As we reported earlier this week, Senate Bill 1813 would empower the Internal Revenue Service to bar Americans from leaving the country if they are merely accused of owing $50,000 or more in back taxes.
Despite numerous Supeme Court cases and the Constitution itself, namely Article I, Section 9, paragraph 3 , which forbids “Bills of Attainder,” arguing against the provision’s legality, the Republican-controlled House is expected to pass the bill in its entirety without much fanfare.
However, a maelstrom of dissent appears to be brewing, even amongst mainstream media columnists including the Investor’s Business Daily, a prominent national newspaper published in Los Angeles.
