US History Repeated

Mar 10 2022 • 23 mins

We continue our foray into The Progressive Era and discuss the passing of the 16th and 17th Amendments.

The 16th Amendment started the collecting of a Federal Income Tax, which has increased over time.

The 17th Amendment changed the way we elect our Senators.

We go into great detail on the how, why, and the benefits  these two amendments to our constitution have provided to the people.

As always there is more to learn.
