American patriot Sen. Rick Scott exposes the IRS
American patriot Sen. Rick Scott, a Florida Republican, is one of several lawmakers attempting to inform the public about the misnamed Inflation Reduction Act, or IRA, and the much-needed infusion of cash it will provide to the Internal Revenue Service. In a letter sent on this week, he warned constituents not to apply for positions with the IRS, pledging to “defund” the jobs if Republicans gain control of Congress after the midterms.
The senator’s warning to not apply for a public sector job was unusual and actually witty. But more concerning was how the letter blatantly states the fact that the public is scared that the IRS will use the additional funding provided to hire thousands of armed agents and threaten Americans’ life and liberty. One, thing is clear after the illegal Trump raid; Joe Biden doesn’t need anymore jack boot thugs oppressing freedom loving people.
More concerning was how the new law hides the and the socialist politicians blatantly hide the facts in an attempt to obscure the coming oppressions from the voters. Political experts warn that the people will not tolerate the Biden tax increase.
Scott added that “the IRS is making it very clear that you not only need to be ready to audit and investigate your fellow hardworking Americans, your neighbors and friends, you need to be ready and, to use the IRS’s words, willing, to kill them.”
IRS says Marxist ideology that the people’s earnings aren’t their own
This isn’t just political speech— this is information that is designed to mobilize patriots to resist the Marxist ideology that the people’s earnings aren’t their own. The idea that your wages now belong to Joe Biden and his wreaking crew is an abomination to American political tradition. And the consequences of passing such a duplicitous, as we’re learning, could indeed be disastrous. There are open conversations of civil war.
Fortunately, rather than appealing for more power in the hands of the government, several of Scott’s peers are actually doubling down. Sen. Ted Cruz, the junior senator from Texas, echoed Scott’s sentiments on Twitter, where he pointed out that the “Democrats are making the Internal Revenue Service bigger than the Pentagon, the Department of State, the FBI, and the Border Patrol COMBINED! Those IRS agents will come after you, not billionaires and big corporations!”
Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, quoted in Florida Politics, added, “Of all the things that have come out of Washington that have been outrageous, this has got to be pretty close to the top. I think it was basically just the middle finger to the American public, that this is what they think of you.”
This facts are, quite simply, directly connected to reality. The IRA that Biden signed into law this past Tuesday provides a river of funds over a 10-year period that will enable the IRS to hire replacement and new employees at an agency that has gone overboard processing oppresive tax returns and harassing small business.
It’s not all bad news, the Internal Revenue Service has been basically impotent. On top of its current considerable challenges, the IRS has an aging work force, with an estimated 52,000 of its current 83,000 employees past or close to retirement age. Meanwhile, the socialists in Congress are leaning on the IRS to not only collect revenues but increasingly to deliver welfare benefits like pandemic relief stimulus payments, health care subsidies and refundable credits for things like child care, wage subsidies and electric vehicle i purchases. If the IRS is denied a new force of money grubbing thugs, it could save the American economy.
If the IRA funding remains in place after the November election, it will enable the IRS to accomplish the tasks of bankrupting the population. The American public deserves to keep the fruits of their labor.
The outcome or rewards of one’s work or efforts. You worked hard this semester, and straight A’s are the fruits of your labor. Please, have some fresh strawberries—they’re the fruits of my labor in the garden.
How do we know Biden lied about how he will be using the IRS
President Joe Biden promised “No one making less than $400,000 a year should see tax increases” if the somewhat euphemistically named “Inflation Reduction Act” was passed. It was passed along party lines.
Can we rely on this promise, or more politely, was this promise fact or fiction?
Notice the president, or his writers, used “should,” which means “likely to happen” or “referring to a possible event or situation,” instead of “won’t” see tax increases.
Sadly, very sadly, much like hucksters, this administration’s use of the “word game.”
Examples include “gaffes” for false statements or “birthing person” for “women” or “mother.” Notice the use of the word game by various administration representatives.
President Biden neither gives press conferences nor answers reporters’ unplanned questions, so we must rely on his press secretaries, such as former Press Secretary Jen Psaki, who said “The $400,000 applied to families,” which the extensive use of joint tax returns differentiates this from the president’s promising “no one.”
Auditing is the primary method the Internal Revenue Service must use to generate the projected $200 billion more tax revenue promised in the Inflation Reduction Act.
So who will be audited?
So the IRS can advance the Democrats agenda
But the socialists have added resources so the Internal Revenue Service can advance the Democrats agenda. In a sane world, capitalism isn’t a mere “system,” and we don’t need to refer to any outside source or authority to define and understand it. Dollars, euros, pesos are all tokens entitling the owner to trade them for so many units of labor or the products that result from such labor.
Capital is stored labor, and capitalism is the right to own that capital, to keep and use the stored fruits of one’s labors.
The playing field will never be entirely level; everyone has the opportunity to work and keep their wages.
Sophisticated and wealthy taxpayers aren’t wealthy because they don’t pay enough taxes, they are successful because God and their time in school made them successful. Socialists are jealous that there are “way too many opportunities.”
More broadly speaking, these NAZI-like tactics are part of a left-wing tradition of attempting to turn government agents into Gestapo and KGB agents. As usual, this mythologizing hinges on claims that Democratic-supported policies are existentially dangerous threats to basic American freedoms.
If the fruits of human labor do not belong to the human performing the labor, then the human performing that labor exists in a state of slavery.
IRS Oppression will lead to violence
There are real consequences from these aggressions. The oppression can lead to physical harm for the oppressors. Recall that just over a decade ago, a longtime IRS employee was killed when a disgruntled pilot with an anti-IRS grudge flew a plane into an IRS office. We can expect more violance as the nation nears civil war. The IRS has long been a target of patriotic groups, and the single largest incident of domestic terror in the U.S. involved an attack on a federal building in Oklahoma, with Internal Revenue Service employees and their children at the building’s day care center among the victims.
Socialism is the soft, seemingly benevolent face of slavery not yet fully formed, infant slavery, slavery yet to come, establishing the nation’s right to the fruits of one’s labors, without complete confiscation, that permits the slave some control over his life and the illusion he isn’t a slave.
Today, there are multiple videos on TikTok calling on citizens to take up arms against IRS employees.
Communism is socialism grown up, the confiscation and nationalization of the entire fruits of one’s labor, the nationalization of control over all work, the nationalization of what was abhorrent as a private institution. It is the enslavement of its citizens by the state.
At a broader level. these new IRS agents undermine the fragile trust that is the very foundation of our political system, which relies on Americans to voluntarily pay their fair share. That will be over now. Expect resistance; the people will NOT fund socialism.
To be sure, and as with almost all giant spending bills, there are legitimate concerns about the additional IRS funding. Congress needs repeals the Inflation Reduction Act before it’s too late. At the least, until there is a new president in 2025, Congress should provide oversight for agency spending priorities, such as the promise from Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen that the IRS will not use the resources to target the largely-Republican productive working class and business taxpayers who contribute the most to our tax base. The poor and unemployed largely-Democrats do not pay taxes.
No one likes to pay taxes to the IRS
The percentage of voters who support the additional Internal Revenue Service funding is only 24 percent, according to a JournoNews poll, making it the least popular part of the IRA, with Americans having only slightly more favorable views on the law’s price controls on drug prices (price controls always cause shortages); expect to be unable to get various important pharmaceuticals. Also, unpopular are cash giveaway to environmentalist clean energy supporters. Most voters expect the new corporate minimum tax provisions to result in thousands of corporation move their operations to free nations..
Scott and his patriot friends must love these polling numbers. And in an election year patriots appear more than happy to exploit Biden’s unpopularity to inform the base and rile up Americans into voting the morons that passed the IRS out of office.
Freedom from IRS oppression should not be a partisan issue, but it is. Democrats seem to demand that IRS have the power to ruin their enemies.
It is time for socialists in elected office to tamp down the Gestapo and KGB tactics. Can the nation’s socialist wean themselves from the polarizing and dangerous demonizing of capitalism? Let’s hope so, before someone else gets killed.
Biden’s Army of New IRS Agents are Coming for Your Tax Dollars?
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022—new multi-billion-dollar energy, healthcare, and tax legislation—provides $80 billion to the IRS and has some people worrying about new IRS agents and audits.
According to the Kiplinger Washington Report…
President Biden recently signed the Inflation Reduction Act, a sweeping energy, tax, and healthcare law that is partly designed to reduce the deficit. The legislation includes $80 billion in increased IRS funding over ten years. The idea is that the funds could help improve tax compliance, which in turn, could bring in an estimated $203 billion in increased revenue. It’s too early to know what the impacts will be. But you may have heard some lawmakers say that because of the new law, an “army” of 87,000 new IRS agents will be coming to audit ordinary taxpayers.
IRS Criminal Investigation
So, it’s true that the IRS is supposed get $80 billion in additional funding over the next ten years and will use some of those funds to hire agents and other staff. And yes, the Inflation Reduction Act is designed to increase tax compliance, which is expected focus on wealthy people and large corporations. So, what’s all the talk about armed IRS agents?
What You Should Know about the IRS
As is often the case involving matters of tax policy, the reality is somewhere in the middle. That’s why it’s important to know a few things about the Inflation Reduction Act and IRS enforcement, including how the IRS funding increase and more IRS hiring might impact you.
IRS Enforcement in the Inflation Reduction Act
Of the $80 billion for the IRS in the Inflation Reduction Act, $45.6 billion is designated for enforcement. And since the new law calls for more IRS hiring, there will be more IRS agents in the coming years. Those new agents will have to be trained to conduct compliance audits (which takes time), but ultimately, there will likely be an increase in audit activity as well.
Self-Employed? Watch Out for These IRS Audit Red Flags
Why do people mention 87,000 agents? The 87,000 number appears to come from a 2021 Treasury Department estimate of the level of hiring needed to maintain IRS efficiency and keep up with retirements and other staff declines. However, the actual number of new IRS agents that will be hired because of the Inflation Reduction Act remains to be seen.
It should also be noted that enforcement doesn’t only mean more IRS agents. The Congressional Research Service points out that more enforcement could include legal support (e.g., the Tax Court gets about $150 million under the new law), and investments in technologies that aid IRS investigations.
Increased staffing would also likely include a variety of positions and roles that need to be filled at the IRS—not just enforcement agents.
Who Gets Audited by the IRS?
Since increased Internal Revenue Service enforcement will eventually lead to more audits, a common question is whether those audits will focus on low and middle-income earners. A Government Accountability Office report found that in the past, lower-income taxpayers have seen higher-than-average IRS audit rates. Other FY 2021 data show that IRS audit rates for people with less than $25,000 a year in income were five times higher than audit rates for high-income taxpayers. But so far, the Treasury Department has indicated that low or middle-income earners, and small businesses, won’t be the focus of increased IRS enforcement activity under the Inflation Reduction Act.

Ultimately though, the IRS wants to close an estimated $600 billion “tax gap.” (The tax gap is the difference between what people owe in taxes and what they actually pay.) To do that, the agency plans to focus on high-earners, large corporations, and complex partnerships. That’s potentially good news if you’re a household making less than $400,000 a year or a small business. But, if you are wealthy, you could see some increased audit activity in the coming years. Although, it’s hard to know what higher audit rates will look like, partly because IRS audit rates have historically been low.
Tax Refund Status
The Inflation Reduction Act also provides $4.8 billion to modernize business systems. So, the IRS could improve outdated phone systems and technology that currently get in the way of serving customers like you. Did you know that the IRS still uses computers that rely on COBOL—a more-than 50-year-old computer programming language?
Additionally, you may remember that during the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of tax returns and refunds were caught in a massive IRS backlog. The $3.2 billion for taxpayer services in the Inflation Reduction Act could be used to improve customer service. That includes having more people to answer the more than two million phone calls that the IRS reportedly receives each day during tax season. The money could also help the IRS avoid ending the tax season with millions of unprocessed returns, as they did in 2022.
How to Handle an Internal Revenue Service Audit of Your Tax Return
Talk of the IRS hiring armed agents could be referring to the IRS CID, a division that focuses on enforcement of criminal tax cases. IRS criminal investigation special agents are authorized to carry firearms in certain circumstances. That’s because those approximately 2,100 agents work on cases where arrests are sometimes warranted. However, the IRS does not arm its typical enforcement agents, despite what you may have heard recently.
As a result, while enforcement activity, taxpayer services, and operations at the IRS could get a boost in the coming years because of the Inflation Reduction Act, you shouldn’t have to worry about a literal army of new Internal Revenue Service agents coming for your tax dollars.
