Massive Tax Code – Shot Show
Look at how many pages are in the federal tax code
As they rush to file their taxes by April 18, Americans are rightfully frustrated with the complexity of the 74,608-page-long federal tax code.
The federal tax code is 187 times longer than it was a century ago, according to Wolters Kluwer, CCH, which has analyzed it since 1913.
Amazingly, in the first 26 years of the federal income tax, the tax code only grew from 400 to 504 pages. Even through President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, the tax code was well under 1,000 pages. Changes during World War II made the length of the tax code balloon to 8,200 pages.

Two Valley Border Patrol agents’ wives asking Nancy Pelosi to visit the border
Two Valley Border Patrol agent wives are calling out Nancy Pelosi to come and visit the Southern border, just as President Trump did.
Both wives of Border Patrol agents lived in uncertainty for the last month, as their husbands were required to protect our border, not knowing when their next pay check would be.
Now they are speaking out about the dangers their husbands face and why we need a border wall.
“We the wives of the RGV, Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol,” wrote Jill Demanski, addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a Facebook post.
Border Patrol Wives Challenge Pelosi: Come Visit Border, Don’t ‘Bring Any Security Detail’
Throughout the lengthy partial government shutdown, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi steadfastly refused to negotiate with President Donald Trump on funding for necessary border walls and barriers and dismissed out of hand the very real security concerns with regard to the porous southern border.
Prior to the temporary end of the shutdown on Friday, a couple of wives of U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley sector of the Texas/Mexico border wrote a letter to Pelosi. The letter requested she pay a visit to the border to see for herself what the situation in that area was like.
