Interestingly, between March 1 and June 1, 2022, the IRS ordered $696,000 in ammunition. “At the point of a gun” suddenly looks very real.
Democrats passed a bill in the House last week to keep US citizens from owning what democrats call “weapons of war,” but the same bill specifically allows IRS agents to have those types of guns. This week they’re adding 87,000 IRS agents to the roster. pic.twitter.com/4wAyGpi5Ls— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) August 8, 2022
The Schumer-Manchin tax bill known as the Inflation Reduction Act, which passed the Senate on Sunday, thanks to a Harris deciding vote, raises taxes and will give the IRS billions to go into what the Wall Street Journal called “beast mode.” Forbes says: In all, the meant-to-be-inflation buster bill will dole out about $80 billion to the IRS for increase enforcement, operational improvements, customer service, and systems modernization. Think big, really big. That $80 billion is more than six times the current annual IRS budget of $12.6 billion. How can the IRS spend all of that? You guessed it, the bill says a whopping $45.6 billion will be for enforcement, and make no mistake, enforcement is the main directive from Democrats to the IRS. Get bigger, tougher and faster at collecting, and make them pay. Meanwhile, the IRS could be ramping up its police power too. The IRS is a key part of the government, but not one you usually associate with law enforcement and guns.
