Ted Cruz criticizes plan to hire 87,000 new IRS employees

| August 9, 2022

Senator Ted Cruz warns about a provision in the spending bill that increases the size of the IRS. He attempted to use an amendment to remove funding allocated to hire 87,000 new IRS agents. Cruz indicated that the pending growth of the IRS would result in their being larger than the Pentagon and three other departments combined.

From Just the News:

“My amendment would have struck the funding for 87,000 new IRS agents,” he tweeted. “But Democrats want to target the American people and their small businesses will more audits. These agents aren’t going to go after billionaires.”

“Democrats want to make the IRS larger than the Pentagon, the State Department, the FBI, and the Border Patrol combined,” he argued. ” That’s a terrible idea. We should abolish the IRS!”

Cruz warned in a separate statement that the new IRS agents will be targeting the middle class, not the wealthy.

“According to expert analysis, it will supercharge the IRS with 87,000 new IRS agents to target Americans with 1.2 million new audits, more than half of which would be for people making less than $75,000 a year,” he said.

Show me the man, I’ll show you the crime… Seems I’ve heard that somewhere before.. maybe a murderous commie thug / hero of Commissar??? Comrade Beria…
Or we could go with criminals are easier to rule.. paraphrased from another hero of the Commissar, Stalin himself…

“The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
Ayn Rand

Thanks Tox, I was afriad I might have mixed up my citations.. Stalin said “it doesn’t matter who votes, what matters is who counts the votes” or something close to that.

But you were correct on “Show me the man, I’ll show you the crime”, Beria, of the Soviet NKVD

Your parents fought on the side of Stalin. You’re the problem.

Of course Himmler and Mueller (more heros of the left… ooh, they claim to hate them, but they follow their playbooks..) would be proud too

How about Joseph Goebbels propaganda speeches 101 which they have down pat.

Thanks Jeff, I definitely should have included him

Didn’t your pappy fight on the side of Stalin?

Retro SS patches on the collars and a P-38 or 9MM luger on their belts would be the new fashion rave among the 87,000 new SS IRS audit and election integrity strong arm enforces.

IRSSS flows just a bit better don’tcha think?

Drake

Not really. According to the age you claim, your pappy was an ally of Stalin and the Communists. So, your father was a traitor.

“White House Economic Adviser Won’t Say If 87,000 New IRS Agents Will Audit Those Making Under $400,000”

https://www.foxnews.com/media/white-house-economic-adviser-wont-say-87000-new-irs-agents-will-audit-making-under-400000

“White House economic adviser Jared Bernstein appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box Monday and was interviewed by host Brian Sullivan, who questioned him about the impact the Inflation Reduction Act will have on taxpayers.”

“I want to be clear, is the president guaranteeing nobody making under $400,000 will be audited [by the new agents]?” asked Sullivan.”

“No, no, no. That’s not what I said. Nobody
making under $400,000 will pay higher taxes under the Inflation Reduction Act,” Bernstein said.”

“If they are doubling the size of the IRS then who are they gonna go after?” asked Sullivan, while also mentioning small businesses.”

“Bernstein did not answer the question regarding who the extra IRS agents would audit…”

Five million rounds of ammo for pistols, sub-machine guns and some sniper rifles. I am thinking they plan to do roundups of those they intend to “audit.” All they will need now is some cool Hugo Boss designed uniforms for their staffel.

Drake

Well, your side fought for Communism and Stalin. Kind of ironic, isn’t it?

Maybe then those motherfuckers will answer their phones.

You are dreaming. Lizard people don’t answer phones. I for one am in favor of more IRS lizard people. The amount of tax fraud that goes on is crazy pants. Since I refuse to cheat on my taxes and have all the records to back it up it is kind of like complaining about getting more police. Sure, you can have toomany but we aren’t anywhere close to that yet.

A buddy who is a retired Revenue Agent (auditor) told me the IRS has become a welfare agency- half the people who file a return are getting a refund without paying anything in- it’s called refundable credits and is a magnet for fraud. The Treasury loses billions due to this fraud, done by gangs, dopers, and cons. IRS tries to cover up how bad it is.

Redistribution of wealth, comrade!

Gangs, dopers and cons are the dem base, Smitty. Gotta take care of their own.

Every year tens of thousands of illegal aliens and other fraudsters claim about two billion in tax refunds based on false claims of child dependents and that earned income child credit. This has been going on for over ten years, and the IRS refuses to do anything about it.

Vote them out…
Then turn the tables and watch them WAIL!!!!!!!!!!!

Biden did this! Well, him and the people that voted for him 2 or 3 times.

And what I call his band-a-ho’s at the White House? Don’t forget the people who manipulate the strings on the meat puppet.

What the politicians who sold their souls by voting for that don’t realize is that more and more People are sharpening their pitchforks, preparing the torches as well as gathering tar and feathers.
