How many citizens pay taxes in the US?

According to Google, as of 2007 there are 138 million US citizens that pay taxes. Considering that the census bureau projects that there are approximately now 305,714,761 people in the US I don't think that's really accurate. That would make less than half the population in the US paying taxes.

How much money does the US mint print?

I believe that it is based on the supply and demand of the currency at the time, this way you can control inflation and regulate the supply of money and the new issuance of it and credit, tho, what has happened is that there is no regulation so, were just printing away, as the dollar is becoming worth less and less.....

What were the original 12 amendments submitted to be ratified?

The original proposed "Bill of Rights", debated and rejected at the constitutional convention included 12 articles of enumeration. The original first amendment dealt with congressional size based on population. It read as follows: "...there shall be one Representative for every thirty thousand, until the number shall amount to one hundred, after which the proportion shall be so regulated by Congress, that there shall be not less than one hundred Representatives, nor less than one Representative for every forty thousand persons, until the number of Representatives shall amount to two hundred; after which the proportion shall be so regulated by Congress, that there shall not be less than two hundred Representatives, nor more than one Representative for every fifty thousand persons." The original 2nd amendment dealt with compensation. It read as follows: "No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened." It was ratified in 1992 and is now the 27th amendment to the Constitution. -- It should be noted that the "Bill of Rights" were not included in the constitution passed during the constitutional convention. Several delegates argued that by limiting the powers of the federal government if any powers were not specifically limited, the federal government would assume itself free to regulate those that were not included. At the behest of anti-federalists and others such as George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson (in France with his oldest daughter during the convention), the "Bill of Rights" as we now know it was passed by the first congress in 1789 and subsequently ratified by the states.
