Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a rocketing star in the Republican Party, has come up with an idea for what a few of those 87,000 new Internal Revenue Service agents should be tasked with doing:
Auditing members of Congress who supported the creation of that army.
It is Joe Biden’s “Inflation Reduction Act,” which actually is forecast to not reduce inflation, that added billions of dollars to the IRS budget to add thousands of agents.
They are expected to put average low-income and middle-income Americans in their bull’s-eye, violating Biden’s campaign promise that on his watch no American making less than $400,000 a year would pay more taxes.
“Those IRS agents are going to be mobilized to go after people that the government doesn’t like,” DeSantis warned.
“This is not something where they’re only going to be going after billionaires. In fact, billionaires all have accountants and lawyers. They’ll be going after people who are not going to be able to defend themselves against these audits,” he said.
“You know they actually proposed an amendment when this was being debated in the U.S. Senate saying none of these agents can audit [those making] under $400,000 a year, and the Democrats voted that down. They did not want to protect Americans that are making under $400,000. The question is why would they not have wanted to do that.”
He continued, “Because they want this to be something that is going after sole proprietors and handymen, and people that own restaurants, people that drive an Uber,” he said. “So it’s going to be those folks that are going to be least able to withstand an audit … because that’s really the low hanging fruit. You go after that [and] you’re probably going to be able to scrounge up a lot of stuff. So that’s not a good thing for an economy. to be unleashing the IRS.”
Further, he said the tax code is “incomprehensible,” “so if they go after you a lot of times they’re going to be able to find something , especially if you don’t have an accountant or lawyers.”
So what should the new army aim at?
“I thought it was really, really reprehensible that they be mobilizing 87,000 IRS agents and I think every member of Congress that voted for that bill should be required to be audited every year by the IRS.” (WATCH:)
The Washington Examiner reported DeSantis previously equated Biden’s IRS expansion to the president giving people “the middle finger.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: How is it possible that the greatest and freest nation in world history has so rapidly come under the control of serially lying, deranged, power-mad sociopaths – leaders with nothing but contempt for America, for its history, its Constitution, its Judeo-Christian culture and its people? Orwell’s “1984” points directly to the answer: The elites are changing America’s language itself, so that people’s words – and therefore, their very thoughts – inevitably come under the control of the ruling class. It’s a way of bending reality in real time, so that what is illusion appears to be true, while what is real and true appears to be lies, misinformation, “hate speech,” “conspiracy theories” and “extremism.” This extraordinarily powerful but little-understood weapon of war employed 24/7 by the Marxist left is completely explained, exposed and exploded in the August issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower agazine, “NEWSPEAK 2022: How tyrants and lunatics are enslaving Americans by redefining everything.”
