With the senate passing the ironically named "inflation reduction act", which even Bernie Sanders said wouldn't reduce inflation, the Biden administration looks to greatly increase the number of IRS agents, as well as arm them.
From the Post Millennial:
The poorly named Inflation Reduction Act, passed over the weekend by Senate Democrats, is slated to create positions for nearly 87,000 new IRS agents, 70,000 of whom will be armed.
This brings the total to nearly 170,000 under the bureau of tax collection. The cost of this new initiative will be about $80 billion, and it's all part of a bill meant to lower costs to Americans.
This was noted as well by Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who told The Post Millennial that "The bill is terrible. It's basically Joe Biden Build Back Better agenda, that a lot of Republicans called 'build that broke..."
It raises taxes on all Americans except those earning between $10,000 and $30,000 annually, and it has provisions, through the IRS, to audit more middle-class Americans and to go after those with delinquent tax bills. Biden has consistently promised that Americans making less than $400,000 would see no new tax increases.
Biden's legislative "victory" is a bill that would increase inflation, raise taxes, and increase the size of the tax collecting agency.
The IRS has been beefing up lately, and it has been noticed by more than a few in DC.
Only the Criminal Investigation Division of the IRS can carry guns, but the IRS has been buying more guns and ammunition in recent years, snapping up nearly $700,000 in ammo in early 2022. The bullet buy prompted Representatives Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Jeff Duncan (R-SC) to introduce the "Disarm the IRS Act," to prohibit the IRS from buying ammunition.
This year the IRS has spent $700,000 on ammo alone.
Why in the world would the IRS need to be arming up like this?
It ain't because they're going after their wealthy corporate friends, I'll tell you that much.
Thomas Massie of Kentucky points out the irony here:
The democrats take "weapons of war" away from law-abiding Americans while arming one of the Left controlled alphabet agencies with these exact weapons.
Arming the IRS with "weapons of war" ... what are we to make of that?
