Apparently, US presidents can declare that some taxes are optional for a period of time.

Thank-you President Obama. Your declaration that a President doesn't have to enforce a particular tax is surely the most important thing you've ever done.

And, I thought you didn't have a clue about the US Constitution.

The next Republican president can unilaterally give us all a tax cut. Can cut estate taxes to zero. Can cut corporate taxes by any amount.
