The IRS terrorizes the American taxpayers.
That is going to get even worse once they hire the additional 87,000 agents the Democrats funded last year.
But Nancy Pelosi and IRS agents are furious over what House Republicans are up to.
Abolish the IRS
Representative Buddy Carter (R-GA) has reintroduced the Fair Tax Act, which would replace the federal income tax with a national consumption tax.
Even better, this bill would eliminate the IRS.
The bill comes at a key time as the IRS is set to hire 87,000 more agents to aggressively enforce the antiquated tax code against hard-working Americans.
The IRS and other federal agencies have simply become too powerful.
Republicans must do something to rein them in, and this bill certainly does that.
“Instead of adding 87,000 new agents to weaponize the IRS against small business owners and middle America, this bill will eliminate the need for the department entirely by simplifying the tax code with provisions that work for the American people and encourage growth and innovation,” Carter said.
As of this writing, the bill has twenty cosponsors.
“I support the Fair Tax because it simplifies our tax code. This transforms the U.S. tax code from a mandatory, progressive, and convoluted system to a fully transparent and unbiased system which does away with the IRS as we know it. It is good for our economy because it encourages work, savings, and investment. Thank you to my colleague Rep. Buddy Carter for leading this effort to simplify the system for American taxpayers,” Representative Bob Good (R-VA), one of the bill’s cosponsors said.
It will get a vote
While the bill has been introduced before and gone nowhere, this time it will actually receive a vote on the House floor.
As you can imagine, this bill never would have seen the light of day while Nancy Pelosi was Speaker.
It also never would have gotten a vote under GOP Speaker Paul Ryan.
The fact that this bill will be voted on is a major victory for conservatives that was made possible by the 20 House members who withheld their votes for Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
Allowing a vote on this bill was one of the many concessions McCarthy had to agree to in order to win the votes of several Freedom Caucus members.
There will also be votes on a balanced budget amendment, a Texas border plan, and an end to all remaining coronavirus mandates and funding.
In addition to getting floor votes on conservative priorities, conservatives will get more spots on powerful committees.
On top of that, conservatives got much needed rule changes such as requiring 72 hours to allow members to read bills, breaking up the so-called “omnibus bills” into several separate bills, and making it more difficult to raise the debt ceiling.
Despite the slim Republican majority, actual conservatives now have more power in the House of Representatives than they have at any time in recent history.
And it is all thanks to a small group of conservatives taking a stand and demanding things change in the House.
