From Raheem Kassam, on the new ""Inflation Reduction Act."
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) commissioner Charles P. Rettig told Congress his agency wouldn’t increase audits on households earning less than $400,000 after being handed circa 87,000 more agents in the Orwellianly-monikered Inflation Reduction Act hurried through the U.S. Congress this weekend.
Which means they absolutely will be doing that, if historical promises by agency heads in front of the lawmakers they pretend to answer to are anything to go by. And they are.
In other words, they just used your taxes to increase your taxes so they could hire 87,000 IRS agents to rifle further through your taxes in case you owe more taxes.
Welcome to American kleptocracy.
IRS estimates (which we know are always excellent) reveal supposedly uncollected taxes of around $1trn each year. Or, as I like to call it, one-eighth of a “war on terror.”
Even Senator Susan Collins has pointed out this move “more than [doubles] the size of the agency and [gives] the IRS more employees than the number of Pentagon, State Department, and FBI employees as well as Border Patrol agents combined.”Source: https://raheemkassam.substack.com/p/american-kleptocracy
Welcome to "Our Democracy" folks!
Do you think the government needs 87,000 new IRS agents to harass the rich? Nope. They need it to go through the taxes of the working class and the middle class. And remember: The IRS has bought $696,000 in ammunition in 2022. That's a lot of bullets, folks. Turns out the IRS buys ammo every year.
While gun control laws are passed against citizens, the government makes sure it is armed to the teeth.
