Vote to Defund 87,000 IRS Agents

TONIGHT: I’ll be voting in just a moment to DEFUND Biden’s 87,000 new IRS agents. This is the first order of new business for the Republican-controlled House. I love it.
If you recall, Democrats tried to pay for a tiny part of that reckless “Inflation Reduction Act” by turbocharging the IRS with 87,000 IRS new agents. Their idea was these agents would be used to audit more of you, hoping to churn up additional tax revenue for Uncle Sam.
Already, the media is putting out stories claiming tonight’s legislation is going to “cost” the government a lot of money. I’m sorry, but there’s something highly inappropriate to assume that taxpayers are automatically tax evaders, and therefore if we just hire an army of IRS agent to needle into every element of their tax returns, they’ll be able to unearth all this money that presumably belongs to the government.
This was a terrible idea from the start, and I can’t think of a better way for House Republicans to kick off this legislative term than to defund this nonsense.
