Regarding Thursday’s opinion piece, “It’s time to repeal the income tax,” I have a question for all those who think federal income tax should be repealed: How do we pay for the programs which we need to sustain a decent lifestyle and for the federal agencies which protect us such as the Food and Drug Administration and Environmental Protection Agency?

The solution to the current IRS scandal is to fire those who participated in and found guilty of any discrimination against organizations applying for 501(c)(4) status.
