DeSantis! Our voice! He’s a giant.
Why shouldn’t these scoundrels suffer the pain they’ve inflicted upon us.
By Heather Hamilton, The Washington Examiner, August 31, 2022:
Earlier this month, President Joe Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act that included $80 billion to overhaul the IRS, with more than 80,000 new positions largely intended for taxation enforcement.
“I think every member of Congress that voted for that bill should be required to be audited every year by the IRS,” DeSantis said while speaking in Fort Pierce, Florida, Tuesday as those in attendance responded with laughter.
The Republican governor objected to the legislation, saying that it would be used to target those who the “government doesn’t like.”
“Those IRS agents are going to be mobilized to go after people that the government doesn’t like,” DeSantis said. “They’re going to be going after people who are not going to be able to defend themselves against these audits.”
DeSantis also said the Democrats’ touting of taxation enforcement on billionaires is misleading, noting that the wealthy have accountants and lawyers to handle the audits.
The Republican governor previously equated the expansion of the IRS to the Biden administration giving people “the middle finger.”
