Joe Biden said he’s going to make people pay their fair share in taxes. He’s going after billionaires- you know, those making over $400K per year. But you know what a galactic liar he is. That won’t get the money he needs.
He needs you and your money. Biden had proposed tracking bank accounts which saw transactions over $600 but backed down. Then he launched a tip reporting system to bring the hammer down on wait staff. Yellen admitted that 90% of the new audits will be of those making less than $400K. The pinnacle of Biden’s revenue enhancement efforts is without any question the addition of 87,000 IRS agents. We’ve just gotten a taste of how they will be used.
Biden is weaponizing the IRS.
On the day Matt Taibbi was to testify before Congress, he was visited in person by an IRS agent. The IRS does not drop to say hello. It does not call you. It sends you letters via the USPS. This weaponization has attracted the attention of the GOP’s Weaponization Committee.
House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan is probing an unannounced, in-person visit by the IRS to the home of Matt Taibbi on the same day the “Twitter Files” journalist warned of a sprawling “censorship industrial complex” in testimony before the subcommittee on the weaponization of the federal government.
In a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel on Monday, Mr. Jordan said that while Mr. Taibbi was testifying before the committee on March 9, an IRS revenue officer appeared at Mr. Taibbi’s New Jersey residence and left a note telling him to call the agency in four days.
The IRS agent later informed Mr. Taibbi that the reason for the visit was that his tax returns from 2018 and 2021 had been rejected over concerns of identity theft, according to Mr. Jordan’s letter.
This is a blatant effort at intimidation and it portends a dark future. You can see the letter Rep. Jim Jordan sent to the IRS here:

Jordan has given the IRS a hard deadline to respond.
Weaponization of the government is nothing new for democrats. Barack Obama waged war on journalists and whistleblowers. He spied on James Rosen and his parents. Obama had Lois Lerner target conservatives for scrutiny during the 2012 election season. The IRS admitted using donor lists to target audits. This time it’s different. There will be 87,000 new agents to harass and intimidate Republicans and their supporters. You can bet that Republicans will be targeted for audits, repeatedly until they acquiesce to the state. Matt Taibbi was the canary in the coal mine.
Imagine if Trump sent an IRS agent to “visit” the J6 Committee members.
The GOP needs to defund that Biden IRS army. Now.
IRS agents are your neighbors, with homes, families and friends. Identify them, follow them, let them know they are not anonymous. If they arrive at your door, call 911, and report an attempted robbery by people impersonating IRS agents.
So, how much does Taibbi make a year? More than $400,000 or less?
Of course idiot Biden is weaponizing the IRS. He’s a cowardly liar, just like the rest of his regime and the Democrats.
To all Biden Supporters to all you clueless liberals with your head in the clouds your looking at what it was like under Hitler, Stalin and Mao and Castro as well living with a Dictator
I’ve read different things about if the hiring of 87,000 IRS employees was an additional number of employees or some replacements and some additional employees. However, to picture 87,000 people think of the largest football stadium in your state. There are only 13 stadiums in the country seating more than 87,000. The Rose Bowl, for instance could seat 88,565 new IRS employees.
