NH Income Tax Protesters Arrested

US Marshals posing as sympathizers finally got the Brown family of NH that was resisting income taxes as unconsitutional. They are slated for major time in prison.

The Browns do not make a ton of money. He is a retired exterminator and she is a dentist. They sought only to not pay federal taxes as they argued that the 1913 constitutional amendment that allowed for wage taxation was never properly ratified.

I cannot imagine the Founding Fathers agreeing that people who refuse to pay income tax are jailed, as they never prescribed such a tax.
