The Truth About the Inflation Reduction Act

Since news broke out that the FBI searched President Donald Trump’s South Florida home, some members of Congress have launched a new line of attack against their rivals: that the Internal Revenue Service intends to use nearly $80 billion in new funding to pursue similar intrusions on average Americans. Those dollars, some are saying, will go toward the hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents.

“Do you make $75,000 or less?” tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “Democrats’ new army of 87,000 IRS agents will be coming for you—with 710,000 new audits for Americans who earn less than $75k.” Richard Grenell, former Acting Director of National Intelligence, wrote on the social media platform: “The FBI raids Trump’s house and the Democrats vote to add 87,000 new IRS agents to go after Americans. Wake up, America.”

Other high-profile politicians have insinuated that the Biden administration intends to direct those additional auditors to dig up dirt on the President’s political opponents. “After today’s raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio.

The U.S. Patriot Act
Although, Grenell and Rubio are correct that the criminals who are in control of our country are after more ways to inflate their wealth and attack their rivals, they are two decades behind in reporting how the government has been militarizing the IRS to accomplish their plans. 

In the wake of the September 11 attacks in 2001, Pres. George W. Bush created the Office of Homeland Security, to coordinate counterterrorism efforts by federal, state, and local agencies; and the Homeland Security Council, purportedly to advise the president on homeland security matters.

The real truth is that Bush, acting like many other criminals running our country, played his part of a plan concocted by the Clinton administration to scare  the American public into accepting the government’s plan to legally deprive the American public of their Constitution protection from arbitrary and capricious law enforcement actions against the public, made legal by the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, which like many scam acts, included other hidden acts, including the US Patriot Act.

In a nutshell, the Patriot Act allows law enforcement to use the tools that were already available to investigate organized crime and drug trafficking. Many of the tools the Act provides to law enforcement to fight terrorism have been used for decades to fight organized crime.

The criminals running our country have been acutely aware for many years now that the rotten fruit of their criminal scams would come to light and anger the majority of the American public. Therefore, these criminals came up with a plan to protect themselves from the American public and other criminals who might attempt to rob them.

Accordingly, the IRS does not need to hire new law enforcement agents to carry out the government’s plan.    In 2016, there were about 100,000 full-time federal law enforcement agents in the United States and U.S. territories, compared to 701,000 full-time sworn officers in general-purpose state and local law-enforcement agencies nationwide, all available to the IRS to enforce the government’s will upon the America public.

The Inflation Reduction Act
The Inflation Reduction Act, is a fraudulent climate, health care and tax package that amongst including numerous provisions to further enrichen the criminals who gave birth to the act, includes roughly $78 billion for the IRS to be phased in over 10 years. A Treasury Department report from May 2021 estimated that such an investment would enable the agency to hire roughly 87,000 employees by 2031. However, most of those hires will not be Internal Revenue agents, and will not be new positions.

According to a Treasury Department official, the funds would cover a wide range of positions including IT technicians and taxpayer services support staff, as well as experienced auditors who would be largely tasked with cracking down on corporate and high-income tax evaders.

“It is wholly inaccurate to describe any of these resources as being about increasing audit scrutiny of the middle class or small businesses,” Natasha Sarin, a counselor for tax policy and implementation at the Treasury Department, has claimed.

At the same time, more than half of the agency’s current employees are eligible for retirement and are expected to leave the agency within the next five years. “There’s a big wave of attrition that’s coming and a lot of these resources are just about filling those positions,” says Sarin, an economist who has studied tax avoidance extensively and who was tapped by the Biden administration to beef up the IRS’s auditing power.

In all, the IRS might net roughly 20,000 to 30,000 more employees from the new funding, enough to restore the tax-collecting agency’s staff to where it was roughly a decade ago.

The IRS currently has roughly 78,000 employees. According to John Koskinen, who served as IRS commissioner from 2013 to 2017, that’s down from around 100,000 when he first started. By the time he resigned four years later, he correctly said, it was clear that the agency was in the grip of a systematic attempt by the Trump administration to demilitarize it. 

It’s an effort that goes back to 2010, when Republicans took back control of the House of Representatives and immediately instituted a series of crippling cuts on the IRS.  Since then, overall funding for the IRS has fallen further, by more than 20 percent, while enforcement funding has dropped by 31 percent. That’s made it easier for high-net-worth criminals and major corporations to avoid federal taxes to the tune of billions of dollars.

Meanwhile, the employee shortage only made it harder for average Americans to reach IRS customer support, which has been inundated with requests far beyond what the staff could handle. “I used to say there’s no Democratic or Republican way to run the IRS,” Koskinen says. “The people who are significantly disadvantaged are the average taxpayers who have a simple question and can’t get through. Those are Republicans as well as independents and Democrats.” As of July of 2022, the IRS backlog included 10.2 million unprocessed individual returns.

Funding from the Inflation Reduction Act is purported to go toward tech modernization. The IRS currently uses technology from the 1960s, called COBOL, to process and intake individual tax returns. According to government officials, the agency has struggled to find workers who are still equipped to code under the antiquated system.  

In reality, the increased funding for the IRS is a bogus part of the political scam which claims to pay for the Inflation Reduction Act, which falsely claims that  by going more forcefully after tax cheats and increasing compliance, the agency will increase revenue by $204 billion over the next decade.

The Fall of Babylon the Great
In reality, Koskinen is as full of excrement as many other of the criminals running our country.  The fact is, politicians do not bite the hands that feed them and therefore will never go after the wealthy criminal ‘tax cheats’ who inflate their financial portfolios.

Of concern to Christians, is that the government’s real plans for the IRS, is  to go after Christians and the wealth of many churches, which is foretold in the book of Revelation, as the last sign before God ends all this nonsense, bringing about his plan to destroy Satan and the many evils inflicting all those who choose to follow and love God.

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring… Luke 25:11
