In the latest edition of the Grover Norquist show, ATR President Grover Norquist previews the content in his upcoming book: End the IRS Before it Ends Us, out April 7.

Norquist discusses America’s history as a low tax nation starting in 1774, when the 13 colonies were paying just 1-2 percent of their income in taxes. Since then, both federal and state governments have consistently raised the tax burden on Americans through a complex web of tax hikes justified by emergencies, wars, and displacing other taxes.
