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.


  1. 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.

  2. Have you tried to get questions answered under the wreck of the IRS left behind by Trump’s cuts to it? It’s in shambles. And what;s wrong with making rich people and corporations pay their fair share? The 87,00 figure has been widely debunked BTW

  3. OH YES –I suppose it costs LOTS to program the phones for Robotic answering ?? CRAZY is the IDEA –they NEED people at the BORDER –right NOW the IRS has way too many –they want to be larger than lots of agencies put together Nobody KNOWS the entire tax code –SIMPLIFY things and you NEED a lot less people. Government has gone NUTTS!

  4. Better service? Sounds like a bunch of thugs to me. 80 thousand armed IRS agents, 0 school security officers.

  5. If it was for betting training for all government agencies, in the rules written into the constitution I might be for it. This bill is nothing more then an excuse to take more of our money and make us poorer.

  6. all along the commie democrats are notorious for not paying their taxes, but bang the drum for the rich to pay their fair share, what a bunch of donkey hole feces dementia jo and huner bidin crime family lauders illegal money from china and russia and fbi sits on the evidence because they are controlled by the commie democrat pedophile party, but more irs agents to come after real Americans
    remove all of these commie democrats from America period.

  7. The most feared words of any American “I’m from the government and I’m here to help!” Does anyone really believe that doubling the number of armed IRS agents is actually a good thing?

  8. They all need to be fir ed as soon as the democrats are ousted and thrown in jail where they belong. I’ve read some of the leftie comments, and y’all are out of your minds thinking this is about the rich, it’s about taking more from us until they have us so poor we can’t stand against them. They’re already tracking our ammo, so they have some idea about where we are. THAT is why they are now armed and dangerous to everyday Americans!
