Based on the ruling by the Supreme Court this morning, it appears that Congress has acquired new taxation powers. Essentially, Congress can now fine the failure to do… whatever. These are some of the taxes that are now, according to the Supreme Court, entirely constititional:
If you haven’t had a child, you have to pay a tax penalty of $10,000 a year. Get to procreating.
If you fail to tithe at least 10% of your income to a recognized, tax exempt church, you will be assessed the balance as a church tax.
If you don’t own at least one firearm per adult in your household, you are assessed a tax of $10,000 a year.
If you fail to fly an American Flag outside your home on Flag Day, you will be assessed a $10,000 tax.
