A liberal Senator is now claiming that President Joe Biden’s new plan to add a shocking 87,000 IRS agents to the federal government’s payroll will somehow give Americans ‘better service.’

As The Daily Wire reports:


While the bill emphasizes spending toward climate and health packages — an extra $80 billion would primarily enhance IRS enforcement and operations while modernizing new technology systems. IRS enforcement aims to ramp up auditing the wealthy and impose a minimum tax on large corporations over the next decade.

However, the number of new agents has working-class Americans concerned that they could see a tax hike, considering Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) once said raising taxes during a recession is wrong, Fox News reports.  

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) attempted to ease taxpayer worries to “Fox News Sunday” host Mike Emanuel when asked if hiring 87,000 new IRS agents would “scare the heck out of millions of Americans.”

“Millions of Americans aren’t going to be impacted by that other than getting better service from the IRS having their telephone answer getting the questions they need in order to comply with our tax laws,” Cardin said. “The auditing is going to be focused on those of high income, the large corporations, etc.”
Is Cardin right that Biden’s plan will make things easier for Americans, or has he completely lost the plot? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Why doesn’t this story talk about the 5 million rounds of ammunition stockpiled by the IRS and the training tactics required for employment? America deserves the facts. Completely and totally.
