The young nation would build its capital city but as the climate warms this historic river poses a flooding risk to nearby landmarks. Steve walls is director of environmental programs. At the metropolitan washington council of governments has increasingly intense rainstorms upstream can caused the river to overflow and when a hurricane hits the eastern seaboard. Then we have the risk of coastal flooding from storm surges. Coming up the river as the river narrows the water level skate. Even higher in our region than in some of the coastal regions along the atlantic. Even without extreme weather sea levels are rising and pushing the river closer to flood. Stage wall says that parts of the national mall the old town neighborhood in alexandria virginia and the george washington memorial parkway already have flooding problems.

Under Your Feet
"You may remember Charles Wilson Peel as the man featured in episode thirty four all about museums in Philadelphia's independence hall above the very room where the declaration of Independence was signed. He opened a museum to display a whole bunch of unusual things. There were mammoth skeletons, ancient artifacts, a wily and well traveled little prairie dog and a wall full of portraits of very important people. He painted those VIP portraits himself appeal among everything else was a remarkable artist and the paintings that he made of the many people who lived in the late seventeen hundreds are some of the best of the time period. We should remember that in the seventeen hundreds there was no television or computers there weren't even photographs. So the average person would probably never actually catch a glimpse of someone famous like George Washington or Ben Franklin and person. which meant that they might not know what they really looked like. Isn't that funny thing to consider if you were alive at the time and wondered what a person look like looking at a portrait was just about the only way to see a famous face. So, curious people were happy to pay Peale's museum admission to see paintings of these very important people and finally put faces with the names they had heard about all the time, the old animal parts and the little prairie dog that peel had on display. Just a nice bonus. Now Peel was just one man and he couldn't paint everyone. Appeal portrait was typically an honor reserved for only the most notable people, presidents, founding fathers, famous personalities. You had to do something pretty special to get appeal portrait. And here's another thing to keep in mind. This was the seventeen hundreds in America and the early eighteen hundreds. So all of the faces that tended to fit those descriptions at that time were white faces. All except for one. On the wall that peel filled from floor to ceiling portrait's in his museum, one painting certainly stuck out to any visitor. It was the face of a black man and he was very old. And the dark skin on his narrow face was accented by white tufts of beard hair in the painting. He's wearing a knit cap on his head. Mike one you'll probably be getting out soon with the rest of your winter clothes. If you haven't already the old man's eyes looked bright and strong and his expression was one of satisfaction. It's an incredible face to look at and many people have wondered who was this man in a way the portrait happened by accident. In eighteen nineteen peel had traveled from his home in Baltimore to Washington DC to paint James Monroe the fifth president of the United States. while. They're peels. Curiosity was piqued when he heard about a free black man who is a practicing Muslim and who not only owned a home in nearby. Georgetown but was a successful business man who had helped finance the bank. This was remarkable and because this was forty six years before the civil war and the end of slavery, it was very unusual. This man was called Yaro Mahmoud. And people said he was one hundred and forty years old. That part was fake. He was probably around eighty at the time but everything else was true. Peel had to make a special trip across the Potomac River to meet Yaro talk with him about his life and have him sit for a very unusual portrait. Painting portraits takes a lot of time as you might imagine, which means there's plenty of time to talk, and that's what Yaro did. The little that we know about him today is mostly because Peel wrote much of it down. It's a pretty amazing story and one that challenges our ideas of the people who were living and thriving in. America at the time. In the year. Seventeen. Fifteen euro was only fourteen when he was captured and taken from his home in West Africa he like millions of other men, women and children was victim of the slave trade. People were kidnapped from their lands, take into another and forced into Labor. Euros people were known as the Fulani and it is believed that his family were wealthy Muslim leaders in this community. Historians think this because Yaro knew how to read and write both in the Fulani language as well as Arabic. Later in his life he learned to read and write a bit of English as well. Making him literate in three languages. That's a feet for anyone at the time but especially unusual for someone who would live much of his life and slavery. Most. Enslaved people would be kept from learning to read and write at all. But for euro, it helped him stand out. After the terrible journey on a slave ship across the Atlantic Ocean Yaro landed in Maryland where a man named Bell bought him directly off the boat. Everything and everyone Yaro new was gone never to be seen again, the man who legally purchased him was a wealthy farmer who owned several properties that depended on the work of enslaved people, farms, watermills, things like that pretty quickly though bell figured out that Yaro was more well suited for work other than hard plantation labor luckily, for Yaro, his education lead to another old, he became what is known as a body servant. In this role young Yaro traveled with bell everywhere he went. When he met with other farmers, Yaro was there. He met the people he would sell his grain too Yarra was there. When he met with powerful politicians, Yaro was also there. And nearly every one of those people would remember meeting Euro. Mahmoud. How could you not? He was obviously incredibly talented and smart, but also by being in the room when business was happening. Yaro was able to learn how to make it happen himself.
History of the US Income Tax
"But our country has this really conflicted history with the income tax. It was not designed by our founding fathers for most of American history there was no income tax at all in the years are brand new government needed some way to raise money, but there was no need to mess around with an income tax. The government had a much simpler way just. Tax The stuff that comes into the ports for a long time really the only way that they raised money was using tariff duties duties on imported goods. This is tax historian Joe, thorndike and tariffs are simple. Right? You send out a tax collector told the major ports ship pulls import us go through the manifests, check the cargo and you add up whatever you WANNA tax sugar guns, books simple. But there's one big problem with tariffs they fail you the one time you really really really need revenue tariff duties are great way to raise money as long as you're not fighting a war yet because someone's blocking airport right or sinking your ships on the way. News Yeah. And that that does tend to depress a little bit. So when in the United States do people start to think and talk about an income tax will you know the earliest? In American history that I know of comes during the war of eighteen twelve when the treasury secretary throws it out there it's it's really kind of a throw away in a report that he sends to Congress. You know, hey, we could consider taxing incomes but this suggestion during the war of eighteen twelve, it goes nowhere an income tax is actually a very complicated thing to pull off successfully there are three big obstacles to getting it. Right. The first obstacle is logistics like how do you make sure people pay a percentage of their income? Oh, it's enormously complicated because it really does come down to. The individual, who's filing this return, and that person we're going to expect them to begin with just to keep track of how much they're earning. Then expect a lot of honesty from them about reporting those records to the government and to make sure that they're actually doing the job you didn't have to create this huge administrative apparatus to go in and enforce it, and you have to give these people the power to dig through the personal financial records of every taxpayer, and that's usually pretty unappealing to tax payers and the government is not going to radically reform the tax code unless it has to. Unless, there's something incredibly expensive it needs to fund. This is how a lot of taxes come out. There's a war, and in fact, fifty years after the idea of the income taxes I floated such a war comes to pass the civil war. This is a very, very, very expensive warm Congress needs money to feed its soldiers by guns, cannon ships. So this time, it's not just one guy. Bringing up the income taxes a suggestion this time. Congress makes it law and even more importantly they come up with a way to enforce it Congress provides for the creation of the Bureau of internal. Revenue this is the first real income tax in the United States, but it doesn't look quite like the one we have today during the civil war only the wealthy had to pay income tax. And the government does this really very clever thing to get rich people to pay it. It makes tax returns public during the civil war anyone could go in and look up your income tax return or at least your report of how much you earn and the idea was that this would help improve compliance because your neighbor would see you driving around on your brand new plow and he'd. Say Wait a minute I that guy get all that money I'm going to see how much he reported on his income tax and they'd go in and they check it out and they could report to the agency and say, Hey, you know I. Don't think that this is the right number. This guy looks like he's living too large for this sort of an income they sort of conscripted. And made the tax collector. So who is living large in? Let's say Washington DC in eighteen, sixty four. Well, we pulled up a copy of the tax assessor sheets for DC, during the civil war and there happens to be a guy here Abraham. Lincoln. Address White House at the White House. Everyone knows where it is it's senator and and the taxes he paid I'm sure people were very interested in this one, thousand, two, hundred, ninety dollars. They're also entries here for restaurant owners for liquor dealers some guy lived on longboat may be in the Potomac River. It's clear from this list that people were paying taxes, the plan worked. Well, some people are paying taxes the north part of the country. Remember this is the civil war, the south. Also attempted an income tax attempted they had a much less effective, a tax system and their income tax was much less effective than the North's version. Is there a case to be made? The civil war was sort of an economic battle in the in the north was better at at that and raising money and and that's one reason at one. Oh, absolutely I mean taxes do have a lot to do with the. North. Winning the war. Not just taxes, but the North's ability to borrow money it. It just had a better economic foundation for fighting a big warlike that you know the income tax worked. So well during the war, you would think that the US government would want to keep it around I. Mean it's Nice to have extra money when you're actually rebuilding from the carnage and such but once the conflict ended, there was this big argument about whether to keep the. Income tax round or not, and now the income tax hits its second obstacle a legal obstacle. Remember how he said the income tax only hits the rich. Well, the rich did not like it and the rich have lawyers in eighteen ninety, five legal challenge to the income tax reaches the US Supreme Court here's economic historian John Steele Gordon. My great great uncle was one of the lead lawyers in that case and guess which side he was on. The trying to shoot down the income then you've got. Cable. He was a Morgan partner at five years later. The argument John Steele Gordon great great uncle made in court was that the income tax violated little document that we'd like to call the US Constitution here Ariba line to you. It says quote direct taxes shall be apportioned among the states according to their respective numbers. I will translate that for you if the federal government wants to raise money directly from people or property, then it has to divide the tax burden up equally Among the states according to their population. So if a state had ten percent of America's population, it should only have to pay about ten percent of the tax and the income tax wasn't taxing according to population it was taxing according to income. So the question before the Supreme Court is and as is often the case it's something kind of knowingly subtle and hard to follow. The question is, is the income tax eight direct tax. I stayed up late last night reading court documents. This is a huge rabbit hole of complicated things, but it comes down to this if any part of this income tax law passed by Congress, if any of the many taxes embedded inside considered a direct tax, then Congress did it wrong? The law is unconstitutional. That is the question that justices had to decide a very interesting thing happened in the Supreme Court. One justice was ill evacuate dying Justice Jackson from Tennessee who was argued before eight justices and they split four four as to whether or not the income tax was a direct tax and therefore unconstitutional. That's why we have an odd number of justices. He can't have a tire. Exactly. was. A four four time. The court decided that the case was simply too important to be tied, and so they haul justice Jackson out of his deathbed. Now odd number of justices and everybody knew that he was in favor of the income tax because he'd said. So publicly, Z. Really Dying Jesse really died two months later. So the lawyers re argue the case Justice Robert Jackson is. In the final days of his life is a pro income tax guy. So he's going to break the tie in favor of the income tax and the tie was broken case was decided five four. But the crazy thing is it was five four the other way it was a five four decision against the income tax. One of the other justices we don't know who switched his vote. and. So the tax was unconstitutional. No income tax. How do people reacted the time to this little intrigue Oh they've there would be a there was a lot of. In the papers about it, but the Supreme Court was silent as it so often is to what the internal workings we really don't know who who, really don't know who it but somebody's which their vote we just don't know. So there's this weird stretch in the middle of American history where the income tax has been ruled unconstitutional but this didn't in anyway settled the argument I mean, if anything the debate over income tax in America grew more heated. This is the time when a lot of big industrialists are getting filthy rich JP Morgan, Rockefeller Carnegie, and at this exact time, the nation has no income tax, the people who are not JP Morgan or Rockefeller Carnegie in the country. A lot of them feel those guys the rich need to bear more of the burden. So nearly twenty years after the income tax is ruled unconstitutional, we get an amendment to the Constitution the sixteen, th amendment ratified in nineteen thirteen a single sentence which begins the Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes just in time for another war World War One. So the income tax has cleared to hurdles so far logistics check legality check. The income tax needs one more thing to bring it into the modern age. One More L. Word Love the income tax of to this point has been a tax on the rich right everyone else was exempt in fact when they bring the income tax back after the constitutional amendment, less than two percent of the population has to pay. All this changes though with World War Two, the government needs more money and now ordinary folks are asked to pay again Joe Thorndike this is a is a real revolution because for most Americans, they've never had this kind of direct tax paying relationship with the federal government. You know they're paying excise taxes on alcohol tobacco or consumer goods but those things are are usually levied somewhere other than like on the consumer you know they're levied at the manufacturer level for the first time. Americans are sort of confronting the federal government as a tax collector and the middle. Class has never paid this tax before they not sure what to do a whole in nineteen forty-three show that one third to one half of people were unclear what

House Vote On Washington, DC Statehood Was Years In The Making
"Being two hundred and thirty two votes in the affirmative one hundred and eighty vote in the negative. Last Friday the House of Representatives passed legislation that would increase the number of stars on the American flag from fifty to fifty one for the first time members approved a bill that would make the capital of the United States Washington DC its own state right now. It's a federal district basically. Within a country that typically houses the national government and is directly controlled by it. The bill says that while federal buildings like the White House would still be federal property. Everything else would be part of this new state, and instead of the District of Columbia. It would be called the Washington Douglas Commonwealth named after abolitionist. Frederick Douglass in theory. It doesn't take that much to create a new state, basically the house Senate and the president. All have to be on board, but DC's history is a federal district is complicated. To explain. We have to go back to the seventeen hundreds. During the American Revolution, the Continental. Congress didn't have a permanent home. The continental capital bounced around from New York to Philly, and then as the result of a compromise between southern and northern states they met in the middle literally in seventeen. Ninety President George. Washington picked spot for the nation's capital along the Potomac River, and it was named the district of. Columbia And the founding fathers wanted the receipts they wrote into the Constitution that DC should be federal city article, one section eight clause seventeen to be exact. They said otherwise Congress in the White House could be too influenced by the state government in which it lived. Tradeoff, though was that DC? Residents lost their representatives in Congress and in the Electoral College. This wasn't something people just let slide. In fact, someone in Congress has fought for DC to become a state every year since nineteen sixty five. Remember no taxation without representation from history class. That's when Americans under British rule demanded representatives across the pond in exchange for their tax dollars in the seventeen hundreds. And you can still find that slogan on DC license plates in twenty twenty, because district residents pay federal taxes, but they don't get to elect representatives with power to represent their interests in the federal government. Instead they have a local government, but even that is still subject to federal control through something called. Rule by invoking home rule Congress can actually block any law. Local officials or residents support. Some things have changed since seventeen ninety, though in its to thirty years of taxation without representation, the D. C. Population has grown to over seven hundred thousand people that's larger than the populations of some states, including Vermont and Wyoming and thanks to the twenty-third amendment district residents now at least gets vote for president and have their vote counted. DC has three votes in the electoral college, but advocates argue three electoral votes is not enough, and they've faced opposition in large part from Republicans in Congress. That's because Washington. DC residents have voted overwhelmingly for Democratic presidential candidates, so the concern is if you make it, state dens will get more of an upper hand in Congress moving forward. Mike we said this is a fight that's come up pretty much every year for decades, but this year the fight for DC to become a state has stayed in the spotlight. That's partly because of the recent protests over racial injustice. In DC. The trump administration has sent federal officers to clear protesters from the streets. Here was DC mayor Muriel bowser on PBS last month, where the capital city were federal district where seven hundred thousand tax paying Americans and I'm the Mayor Governor County executive all at once, but because we are not a state the federal government can encroach on our atonomy. Those recent clashes between protesters and federal officers have raised more questions about whether it's fair for the federal government to have so much. Say in how the city operates. Advocates also argue that the fight for DC to become a state is a civil rights issue. The majority of the district residents are people of color which means Washington. DC is one clear example of a place in which black Americans are being denied representation. So. DC statehood passing in the house last week was historic, but to be clear. It's not likely to pass the Republican controlled Senate. And president trump is also said he opposes the idea which means this bill will probably go nowhere, but if the balance of power changes in Washington and November it could be back on the table again and other US territories buying for statehood like Puerto Rico home to more than three million Americans could also have a shot at finally becoming part of the Union. Happy for the July.
