During the lame-duck session of Congress, before the Republicans retook control of the House of Representatives in the November midterm elections, the Democrat-controlled chamber would include billions more money in a massive $1.7 trillion dollar ‘omnibus’ spending package to hire a veritable contingent of IRS agents and staff over the next decade; the exact number is 87,000. This was done in anticipation of the Republicans taking control of the House.
According to members of the party, the reason for this was that the federal govt would’ve been better prepared to go after “rich tax cheaters,” who purportedly plan every year how to defraud the government (as well as the American people) out of their tax money.
It turns out that the Biden administration, in particular, utilizes the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a tool against working men and women. That is, of course, a lie, and a verifiable one, as shown by a study that was released earlier this week by academics at Syracuse University. More will be spoken about it at a later time.
Rep. Earl L. “Buddy” Carter, a Republican from Georgia, has introduced a bill that would essentially “neuter” the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and dramatically decrease the size (and power) of the agency as a result of a massive simplification of the tax code, which is currently extremely complex and it has led to the creation of an entire industry of “tax professionals” whose job it is to sort it all out. This legislation is intended to prevent the kind of abuse that was described above from occurring.
According to a news statement issued by his office, Carter “presented H.R. 25, the Fair Tax Act, to replace the existing tax system with a national consumption tax known as the Fair Tax” on Tuesday. The Fair Tax Act would replace the current tax code with a nationwide consumption tax.
“Cosponsoring this Georgia-made law was my first act as a Member of Congress, and it is, appropriately, the first measure I am presenting in the 118th Congress,” said Carter. “I look forward to serving the people of Georgia in the 118th Congress.” This bill will eliminate the need for the Internal Revenue Service entirely by simplifying the tax code with clauses that work for the American people and encourage growth and innovation. “Instead of adding 87,000 new agents to weaponize the IRS against owners of small businesses and middle America, this bill will eliminate the need for the department entirely. It is unacceptable for armed, unelected bureaucrats to have more control over your income than you have.
Additionally, the views of the bill’s co-sponsors were solicited and collected for consideration.
“Having previously had a company of my own, I have first-hand experience with the burdensome effects that our inefficient income tax system has on the American people. The unfair Internal Revenue Service has terminated along with the tax system thanks to the passage of the Fair Tax Act, which also imposes a sales tax in lieu of income tax. Rep. Jeff Duncan stated that if this bill passes into law, it would revitalize the American taxpayer and assist more people in achieving the “American Dream.”
“I believe in the Fair Tax because it will make our tax law easier to understand. The Internal Revenue Service as we know it will be abolished as a result of this change, which will also alter the United States tax law from one that is obligatory, progressive, and complex into one that is entirely transparent and neutral. It is beneficial to our economy because it motivates people to work, save money, and make investments. Rep. Bob Good extended gratitude to Rep. Buddy Carter, with whom he works closely, for spearheading the charge to simplify the system for taxpayers in the United States.
Rep. Kat Cammack said, “I’m really delighted to once again co-sponsor the FairTax Act,” and she went on to elaborate. “We’ve seen a continual rise of the IRS, and a constant punishment of industrious Americans through the tax law,” you said. “We’ve seen both of those things.” We are advocating for a streamlined and equitable code that is applicable to everyone and not just some of them. I encourage my fellow lawmakers to embrace this simple measure that fights back against the militarization of the Internal Revenue Service and stops penalizing individuals who work hard to achieve.
Concerning the Syracuse research, it was revealed by Fox News that the Internal Revenue Service acts in a manner that is completely contrary to what Democrats assert, which is typical:
According to the findings of research that analyzed the data from IRS tax audits in the year 2022, a taxpayer in the lowest earnings bracket has five times the likelihood of being subjected to an audit as compared to a member of the highest income bracket.
Tax returns of lower-income working Americans in the United States were scrutinized five times more frequently than those of billionaire earners, providing more evidence that the Democratic Party is the party of oppression, power, and money.
