Florida Gov Ron DeSantis Rips IRS Expansion

When debating the expansion of the IRS, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was forthright. Joe Biden’s signature of the so-called Inflation Reduction Act will result in the IRS receiving $80 billion for the purpose of enforcing tax laws.

DeSantis mentioned the financing for the IRS and the hiring of extra agents. He claimed it was a middle finger to the people of America.

“They are going to go after independent contractors, they’re going to go after small business people, they’re going to go after someone that may be driving an Uber or a handyman or all these things. Why would they do that? Because you’re not going to be able to contend with the audit, so they’re going to crush a lot of people by doing that,” DeSantis continued.

This law, according to IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig, will narrow the tax gap and enhance taxpayer services and technology.

Rettig continued, saying that the IRS has struggled for many years to carry out crucial missions due to a lack of funding. These revenues will be useful over the next ten years in a variety of ways.

However, DeSantis pointed out that, “They’re not putting very much money down at the border, I can tell you that right now, but they want to be able to do it and unleash them on American taxpayers. That’s wrong.”

Only 13% of respondents to a recent YouGov poll think the so-called Inflation Reduction Act will lower inflation. 42 percent of people believe it will have the reverse result, causing inflation to rise. Specifically, 25% of Democrats believe that it will cause inflation to rise, compared to 14% of Republicans. Republicans believe that the law would result in higher inflation by a staggering 72%, while only 2% of Democrats agree, and 41% of Independents believe that inflation will rise while 7% believe it will fall.
