QUOTE: The tax levy is inequitably distributed. By far too great a proportion of the money collected for the public use comes from those least able to pay it… The farmer, the home owner, the manufacturer, the merchant, are taxed beyond their ability to pay without resorting to that portion of their income which is necessary to their support or to the maintenance of their business.
