How about the government stop spending and stop taking my money?
Taxation is theft. Repeal the 16th Amendment.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and others are rolling in their graves more than ever. Alexander Hamilton probably doesn’t mind the latest news about the IRS.
The additional IRS funding is integral to the Democrats’ reconciliation package. A Congressional Budget Office analysis found the hiring of new IRS agents would result in more than $200 billion in additional revenue for the federal government over the next decade. More than half of that funding is specifically earmarked for “enforcement,” meaning tax audits and other responsibilities such as “digital asset monitoring.”
Although Democrats say the hiring of additional IRS agents will help root out tax cheats and other criminals, federal tax revenues have steadily risen over the past several decades. Federal tax receipts are projected to hit $5.7 trillion in 2027, up from just over $4 trillion last year without additional IRS agents.
The IRS already has 78,661 full-time employees. The IRS is already one of the largest government agencies, but now it will be untouchable:
- Pentagon: 27,000
- State Department: 77,243
- FBI: 35,000
- Border Patrol agents: 19,536
The middle class will fall victim to the regime, not the rich the Democrats claim to hate:
The majority of new revenue from IRS audits and scrutiny will come from those making less than $200,000 a year, according to a study from the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation. The committee found that just 4 to 9 percent of money raised will come from those making more than $500,000, contrary to Democrats’ claims that new IRS agents are necessary to target millionaires and billionaires who hide income.
Dems' bill contains no protections for the middle-class from new barrage of IRS audits.

Do you know how you get millionaires and billionaires to pay taxes? You overhaul the tax code. They have great accountants who can find all the reductions and write-offs. There’s no such thing as tax “loopholes.” It’s all right there in the tax code.
The Democrats know they can do and say anything they want because the mainstream media will not challenge them. The talking points will gain steam, and by the time the truth comes out, no one cares.
Democrat Sen. Ben Cardin said:
"Can you understand how 87,000 new IRS agents would scare the heck out of millions of Americans?"

Stacey wrote about an IRS-licensed enrolled agent with some of the same thoughts as Cardin.
Excuse me? I guess we don’t need the 4th or 5th amendment? There’s a reason why no matter what, you always have a lawyer with you when you speak to the police. It annoys me when I see people on crime shows without lawyers.
Because we all know authority won’t twist and turn your words and actions to fit their needs and wants, right? We’ve never seen that happen.
Also, why would non-leftists fear the IRS?
