Joe Biden declared war on the American people.
But it’s not the way anyone thinks.
And now Ron DeSantis just described the scary way Joe Biden will seize money from your bank account.
Joe Biden’s new socialist spending bill included $80 billion to hire 87,000 new IRS agents.
The Biden administration – which lied about inflation being transitory, lied about the border being secure, and lied about the number of Americans it left behind in Afghanistan – claims the new IRS agents will only target wealthy Americans as well as better service to taxpayers.
“The IRS has struggled for many years with insufficient resources to fulfill our important mission,” IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig announced. “During the next 10 years, these funds will help us in many areas, including adding critical resources to not just close the tax gap but meaningfully improve taxpayer service and technology.”
That was a lie.
The Treasury Department expects to raise $480 billion from new audits.
Liberal economist Larry Summers pegged that number at $1 trillion.
And the Biden administration knows these new agents will audit middle-class Americans.
Americans who make less than $25,000 per year are audited at five times the rate of everyone else.
Biden officials claim the rate of audits on the middle class will not increase but that just means more agents will audit more of all income groups so there will be numerically more audits of middle-class Americans under Biden’s new tax regime.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called BS on these false claims by the Biden administration calling 87,000 IRS agents a “middle finger” to the people.
“Of all the things that have come out of Washington that have been outrageous, this has got to be pretty close to the top,” DeSantis declared. “I think it was basically just the middle finger to the American public, that this is what they think of you.”
DeSantis warned that the Biden administration would target independent contractors and pass-through businesses as the biggest source of new tax revenue.
“They are going to go after independent contractors. They’re going to go after small business people. They’re going to go after someone that may be driving an Uber or a handyman or all these things,” DeSantis added. “Why would they do that? Because you’re not going to be able to contend with the audit, so they’re going to crush a lot of people by doing that.”
Democrats understand that raising taxes on the middle class is a ticket to electoral wipeout.
So, the Biden administration concocted a new scheme to impose a backdoor tax increase on the middle class to fund socialist programs by hiring new IRS agents to shakedown small business owners for every nickel possible.
