ANALYSIS – Team Biden and Congressional Democrats are showing their true stripes with their latest massive taxpayer funded boondoggle, the so-called ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ (Act) negotiated by Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.).

Under the deceptive name, the Act would give the hated Internal Revenue Service (IRS) $80 billion in additional funding to hire as many as 87,000 more agents and employees, while doing virtually nothing to reduce inflation.

The Washington Free Beacon previously reported that, despite White House claims, the Act does extremely little to fight inflation. Moody’s Analytics found the Democrat bill will shave a paltry .33 percent from the Consumer Price Index (CPI) over the next ten years.

And this new IRS ‘army’ isn’t going after the ‘rich’ – it’s coming after you – the middle class.

The additional money would increase the agency’s budget by more than 600 percent from its current $12.6 billion.

This would more than double the size of the IRS which currently has 78,661 full-time employees, making the IRS one of the largest federal agencies, with an army of bureaucrats larger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined.

According to publicly available government sources, the Pentagon has roughly 27,000 employees at its five-sided HQ, while the State Department employs just over 77,243 staff.

The FBI has about 35,000 people, according to the agency’s website, and Customs and Border Protection says it has 19,536 Border Patrol agents.

While Democrats claim the army of new IRS agents is needed to go after millionaire and billionaire tax cheats, a nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation study shows that the majority of new revenue from IRS audits and heightened scrutiny will come from those making less than $200,000 a year.

In fact, the committee found that only 4 to 9 percent of money raised will come from those making more than $500,000.

And as the Washington Free Beacon notes:

Although Democrats say the hiring of additional IRS agents will help root out tax cheats and other criminals, federal tax revenues have steadily risen over the past several decades. Federal tax receipts are projected to hit $5.7 trillion in 2027, up from just over $4 trillion last year without additional IRS agents.

So, in essence, this new Democrat-created IRS army’s primary mission is to come after hard-working middle-class America, to aggressively milk them for the Democrat’s massive far-left spending plans. ADN


  1. This inflation reduction bill has all the making of the Nazi Germany within our borders. First move disarm the citizens move two the killing of freedom of speech step thee control the news media step four control the justice system and judges step five setting up there own enforcement agencies ( Similar to the Gestapo or storm troopers the SS we call them the FBI AND THE IRS THEN ARM THEM) step six burning books
    Step seven arrest all the apposition and control the population and remove free will!

    1. Sounds eerily like Hitler’s Nazi’s and Brown Shirts. Better brush up on your history, folks.

    2. You just named the handful of promises Republican hard righters promise when they take charge–it’s called dictatorship. But it doesn’t apply to Democrats, the reason they will be elected and maintain political control of the country into the distant future. We like our country just the way it was for 240 years, warts and all. The curve of the nation is toward liberty and justice for all, including a crooked ex-pres., wacky congressional minority leaders, all Hill Republicans but a handful of straight shooters, and 30 million or so conspiracy mongers living in lala land instead of reality. Hope you enjoy stewing in your own bigotry and hatred for a long long time.

  2. I was really concerned about earlier reports indicating they were buying up tons of ammunition. What would the IRS need with ammunition? Were they trying to corner market and create shortages? Looks like it could be way more nefarious.

    1. Your bogus news sources are as stoned as you on fantasyland dreams and conspiracy fiction. You can’t get straight which party buys all the guns and ammo in your stupor. Don’t be concerned that Dems will rule the nation for eternity given the alternative you dream about.

  3. The IRS is a notoriously liberal organization that needs a complete housecleaning and overhaul. I’m close to someone employed there for thirty years and he talked about how you couldn’t express your political views if your were Conservative. You would be completely shut down. Talk about a threat to Democracy!

  4. Our country declared independence from being ruled by the British Monarchy over this very issue — unfair taxation and royal privilege. Looks like we’re gonna have to fight that battle all over again to get out from under Dem tyranny! They haven’t changed their spots from their willingness to leave the Union to preserve their slave based economy! Control is their crack cocaine and they’re bigly addicted. It’s what the open border policy is all about. It’s the new slave trade and they’ve partnered with the cartels — the modern day slave traders!!

  5. I woke up at 2:30 a.m. and my mind was on why does the IRS need 87,000 armed, willing to use deadly force, agents? And the only answer I could come up with which ade any sense to me was, to guard FEMA Camps. Yup, to guard FEMA camps where those who appose the democrats and their agenda of a private army to round up and hold disenters to their sociaalist/communist agenda for the U.S.. Many people today have no understanding of the true impact the Nazi’s had, not only in Germeny, but the world and the democrats desire their agenda is implimented under the same concept as what the Nazi’s used:
    the German secret police under Nazi rule. It ruthlessly suppressed opposition to the Nazis in Germany and occupied Europe, and sent Jewish people and others to concentration camps. From 1936 it was headed by Heinrich Himmler.

  6. Posted on this and post was deleted. So will try one more time. Remeber the IRS scandal during the obama/biden administration targeting individuals and organizations – well now they are weaponizing the IRS to legally do it
