Ron DeSantis Says IRS Boost is a “Middle Finger“ to the American People

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is famous for saying exactly what’s on his mind. His latest takes on Biden’s “Inflation Reduction Act” were no different, as the bill also included an $80 billion expansion for the IRS.

According to the bill, the additional funding is to help the agency “enforce taxation.” Although analysts have found it’s often the lower classes that get taxed more, as opposed to the billionaire individuals and corporations.

Florida governor sheds some heavy criticism on Biden’s latest bill

Despite what the Democrats may want you to think, it’s nearly impossible for the expansion to do anything towards increasing taxation of the upper class.

It will actually increase taxation among the lower classes, now that practically anyone can be audited.

Immediately after this portion of the bill was revealed, dozens of Republican figures took a stand against the bill, albeit a tiny bit too late, considering Biden’s already signed off on it.

This leaves the American people at the mercy of high taxes in a high inflation environment.

DeSantis didn’t have much good to say about the new legislation, aside from believing it to be “one big middle finger” to the law-abiding, taxpaying Americans.

The Florida governor and possible presidential candidate claimed the bill to be one of the most outrageous things to have come out of Washington.

DeSantis added the IRS expansion means the agency will be coming straight for lower-income households.

Democrats continue with their narrative

Naturally, the Commissioner for the IRS, Chuck Rettig, stated the new legislation will tighten the tax gap and improve both service and technology regarding taxpaying.

While all of this does sound plausible on paper, the issue is it’s all at the expense of the households that are already struggling to keep the lights on.

According to Rettig, the IRS has been struggling to juggle its resources for the better part of a decade now. Although many will argue that may not have been the issue had they employed proper taxation of the billionaires that continue to avoid paying their fair share.

Additionally, there are much more pressing issues to be addressed, like the border crisis we’re having right now, caused by none other than the Biden administration’s negligence of the situation before it bubbled out of control.

The worst part is the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” will do little to actually impact the growing inflation; analysts found it’ll actually continue to increase for the next three to four years.

The state of the US economy remains the #1 voter concern, mainly due to the Biden administration’s quick change-up of the definition for “recession,” effectively buying themselves more time to come up with a way to blame it on someone else.

With 724 billionaires in the US, it’s certain more Americans will be audited for taxes. Only time will tell how many of those will be lower-income families already squeezed dry by the ever-growing inflation.
