The corporate-controlled media and leading Democrats are making a mockery of weaponizing the IRS.
Average Americans will likely feel the brunt of this bill, yet talking heads and Democrats seem to think it’s a joke.
But infusing the agency with cash to hire more agents is no laughing matter.
Doubling the IRS workforce is hilarious to tone-deaf leftists
Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act will add twice the number of Internal Revenue Service employees to the payroll.
This increase in IRS agents means more scrutiny for working Americans and small business owners.
For some reason, talking heads at corporate-controlled networks like CNN, NBC, and MSNBC are mocking the concerns voiced by Republicans about these provisions.
Not only will this plan raise taxes on Americans, but it will also put working peoples’ income tax filings under a microscope.
Democrats claim the new bill won’t impact anyone making less than $400,000 a year.
However, the Congressional Budget Office states that anyone under the $400,000 annual income threshold will still add approximately $20 billion in new tax revenue.
People like MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle think it’s funny that citizens are concerned, asking Rep. Katie Porter (D-Calif.) if she’d like to “fact-check” the claim on her show.
Other Fake News Media members claim that worries about the IRS provision are just a reflection of the “MAGA media’s hatred of government.”
Even worse, Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) stated that anyone opposing the bill just wants to make it easier for Americans to cheat on their taxes.
More agents mean more problems for the average taxpayer
Rumors have been swirling that the Inflation Reduction Act will arm IRS agents and give them more power to forcibly audit taxpayers at low- to middle-income levels.
Democrats’ counterclaim is that the real goal of the bill is to build “better technology” so the IRS can “be more helpful.”
The Washington Post published an article claiming that Democrats expect that a “bigger IRS will be a better IRS.”
They seem to think that collecting more taxes will only affect the super-wealthy and not average taxpayers.
NBC’s Chuck Todd and his panel on Meet the Press chuckled at the idea that Republicans are concerned about the negative impacts of this bill.
The reality is that a stronger, larger IRS will likely go after not just the wealthiest among us, but after the average earner, too.
Brian Riedl, a senior fellow at Manhattan Institute, stated that there will be “a large population of agents left over to audit the middle class.”
When the IRS comes knocking at your door, it’s no longer a funny joke or a humorous scenario.
Joe Biden promised that no citizen in middle- and lower-income tax brackets needs to worry about a higher chance of being audited.
Yet many experts state that increasing staff and funding is a surefire way to guarantee that the IRS will start going after everyday Americans.
