So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

Sanders sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew Friday identifying a number of executive actions he believes the IRS could take, without any input from Congress, that would close loopholes currently used by corporations. In the past, IRS lawyers have been hesitant to use executive actions to raise significant amounts of revenue, but that same calculation has change in other federal agencies since Obama became president.

Perhaps we should examine where the US Constitution enumerates the powers of taxation.

US Constitution: Article 1 – Section 8: (Powers of Congress):

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

US Constitution: Article 2 – Section 2: (Powers of the President)

(no powers whatsoever regarding taxation enumerated)

Yet another unconstitutional power grab by President Emperor Obama
