The IRS is morphing into something extremely dangerous.
It’s trying to take money from Americans to fund Biden’s lavish spending schemes.
And now the IRS is resorting to extreme and unprecedented tactics to do that.
The “Inflation Reduction Act” that Biden pushed through Congress, with the help of “moderate” Senator Joe Manchin, is going to go down in history as a terrible disaster.
First of all, it does not reduce inflation at all – it actually increases federal spending dramatically.
To pay for this increased spending, this new law is weaponizing the IRS to come after Americans and take their money like never before.
According to Kristin Tate writing at The Hill, “President Biden and the Democrats are setting up the IRS as the next three-letter intelligence agency, with the rapid expansion of the service’s power and payroll. Changes resulting from the improperly-named Inflation Reduction Act have positioned the Internal Revenue Service as a potent political weapon – one that the Democrats may not be the only ones to wield.”
The last part of that is the most relevant – and the scariest.
If one party wields this grotesque power against their political enemies in the other party, the same thing will happen when the other party takes power.
And then America will spiral into oblivion as both parties terrorize each other more and more with each passing administration.
These are the unintended consequences of the “Inflation Reduction Act.”
The article continues, “The Patriot Act and post-9/11 surveillance state showed just how swiftly and uncontrollably seemingly good intentions can balloon into a statist’s dream. Combine the expansion of National Security Agency-style collection of data with a supercharged, super-staffed IRS and you get the worst of both worlds. The role of the reformed IRS will be not to squeeze CEO’s and eight-figure corporate functionaries, but to get every dime from ordinary people via excessive auditing.”
After all of the massive expansions of government power that occurred after 9/11, the last thing that America needs is another agency becoming like the NSA.
And yet that is exactly what is happening now with the IRS – whose sole objective is to go after Americans to take their hard-earned money.
The article goes on to say, “While a beefed-up IRS will disproportionately burden working- and middle-class individuals, this represents just the tip of the iceberg. The massive expansion of the agency will also give it the ability to potentially target political ‘enemies.’ During the Obama years, the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups by denying nonprofit status was effectively swept under the rug by legacy media. Such targeting could become routine. If Biden truly believes that Republicans are ‘semi-fascists,’ the IRS could transform into a renewal of the House Un-American Activities Committee. The Biden administration could not show proper restraint against an opponent it sees as semi-treasonous.”
This type of extraordinary power does not belong in the hands of the IRS.
And if this scheme really comes to fruition, it will be bad news for millions of working-class Americans.
