List four ways in which the government's power to tax is limited?

User Avatar
1. Taxes can only be used for public purposes only. 2. Article 1, Section 9, Clause 5 declares that, "No Tax or Duty shall be laid on Articles exported form any State"... Prohibition of export taxes. 3. Direct taxes must be equally apportioned, evenly distributed, among the states. 4. Article 1, Section 8, Clause 1. "All duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States". Which means that all of the indirect taxes levied by the Federal Government must be set as the same ratein all parts of the country.

Why is mercy killing bad?

User Avatar
The problem is the definition. Where is the line between a mercy killing and murder? What criteria divide the two? As long as there is controversy between the two definitions, there is going to be the belief that they are bad.

Why can't banks be closed for more than 3 days straight?

User Avatar
This is a perpetuated myth; a fallacy. There is NO federal law or regulation that requires financial institutions (FIs) to be open on certain days or that prohibits them from closing for a specified number of consecutive days. "The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (Pub. L. 102--242, 105 Stat. 2236) (FDICIA) was enacted on December 19, 1991. Section 228 of the FDICIA added a new section 42 to the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1831r--1) (FDI Act) that imposes notice requirements on insured depository institutions that intend to close branches." This law, however, is specific to "branch" closings which might have significant, long-term impact on local communities. As such, FIs are required to notify their prudential regulators and provide sufficient analysis and substantiation for such permanent closings. For those who might disagree, please provide a regulatory citation for your position.
