Levin: Tax Day Should Be Day Before Elections

Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin said politicians would be more accountable if tax day were moved to the day before election day. 

He made his comments in a one-hour special on Fox News’s Hannity on Friday about his new book, The Liberty Amendments, which is the top-selling book on Amazon.com even though the mainstream press has paid scant attention to it.

Levin said he just “decided to take a look at the calendar” and realized, “the two furthest dates possible are tax day and election day.”

“Let’s make them the two closest dates possible,”

If that happens, Levin asserted, “rather than these politicians telling us what they are going to do for us,” voters can remember “what they’ve done to us.”

Levin said what politicians have done–like raising taxes or increasing spending–“will be fresh in our minds” and voters will go to the polls “ticked off about what they’ve done to us and our country.”

He also mentioned how intertwined liberty is with physical and intellectual property and blasted the government for being “like a mob” and claiming “40% to 50% of what you have” regardless of “how they waste the money or violate the Constitution.” Levin also said nobody’s income should be taxed more than 15%. 

Levin also discussed his book with a group of panelists on the show that included Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak.
