Joe Biden is pushing the most radical socialist agenda in American history.
But Biden had even more destructive schemes up his sleeve.
And Ron DeSantis warned Americans about Joe Biden’s secret plan to empty their bank accounts.
Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer rammed a socialist power grab through Congress containing hundreds of billions of dollars in tax increases and hundreds of billions in Green New Deal funding.
And tucked away in the big government blowout was $80 billion in funding to hire 87,000 new IRS agents.
The Biden administration claimed this new army of weaponized bureaucrats would only target billionaires.
But at a press conference, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis pointed out there are only 724 billionaires in the United States, not nearly enough to occupy thousands of new IRS agents.
“First of all there’s not that many billionaires to need 87,000. Second of all, billionaires have accountants, they have lawyers and a lot of what billionaires do is they exploit the loopholes that Congress has put in the tax code over the years. That’s just the truth,” Governor DeSantis stated.
Governor DeSantis warned that Democrats tipped their hands as to who this new horde of IRS agents would target when every Senate Democrat voted against an amendment to prevent the new IRS agents from targeting any American making less than $400,000 per year.
“There was an amendment that was offered in the Senate when this bill was being debated that said you cannot use any of these IRS agents to go after anyone earning less than $400,000 a year. The Democrats voted that amendment down so it can go — it can go for anybody,” Governor DeSantis continued.
DeSantis explained the real reason the Democrats boosted IRS hiring by 87,000 new agents was to enlist a fleet of tax collectors to go after independent contractors, small business owners, and middle-class Americans.
“Who are they going to go after? They’re gonna go after the people that don’t have the wherewithal to withstand these audits. People that have lawyers and accountants, they know how to do this, but they’re gonna go after a sole proprietor. They’re gonna go after some handyman. They’re gonna go after somebody driving an Uber or somebody owning a family restaurant. That’s who they’re gonna go after, because you can turn the screws on those folks, and you can really get a pound of flesh,” DeSantis warned.
DeSantis referenced the Obama-era scandal where the IRS targeted Tea Party groups for political harassment to caution Americans that this new arm of IRS bureaucrats would “go after people they don’t like.”
Democrats know passing a middle-class tax increase is political suicide.
So instead, Democrats intend to raise taxes on the middle class by increasing tax enforcement.
