Americans were shocked when Democrats passed a bill calling for 87,000 new IRS agents. Joe Biden and his goons claimed it was only to ensure “billionaires” paid their “fair share.” But many critics explained that the IRS doesn’t need that many new agents to collect taxes and what is a small group of people.
But what they just did is even worse.
Few Americans like the IRS or even trust it. That’s why we pay so much every year to make sure we get our refunds! But the IRS is hell-bent on making sure Biden’s socialist spending spree is funded. And that Americans are bilked out of every last penny. Don’t believe us? Then explain why this tax-collecting agency needed to hire armed agents?
From Fox Business:
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is looking to hire special agents who carry guns and make arrests with jobs available in all 50 states, according to a posting on the agency’s website…
Under the posting’s “major duties” section, the IRS says that special agents “[c]arry a firearm; must be prepared to protect him/herself or others from physical attacks at any time and without warning and use firearms in life-threatening situations; must be willing to use force up to and including the use of deadly force.”
This is troubling. Most IRS agents are simply glorified accountants. They are supposed to simply take your money and file refunds (if you are eligible for one). So, why is the agency trying to hire armed agents in all 50 states?
Part of the agency is the Criminal Investigation division. Sure, there are some people who break the law by refusing to pay their taxes. Tax fraud and tax evasion are real crimes (which Hunter Biden might be guilty of breaking). But does the fact that some people might be committing these crimes require IRS agents to be packing heat?
If someone suspected of tax fraud poses a physical threat, why not call the police? We have an entire government body dedicated to arresting criminals. Why isn’t the IRS relying on the DOJ or FBI to arrest these suspects? Why do we need IRS agents with the ability to “protect him/herself,” when all they are supposed to do is audit companies?
The job listings state that these agents will be able to use “deadly force.” Really? To collect taxes? This is way beyond what any American would think is appropriate. But it’s par for the course for the Biden administration. He wants to expand the government so much, that every agency gets their own police force.
So much for liberty, huh?
- The IRS is looking to hire armed agents for every state in America.
- These agents will carry firearms and are allowed to use “deadly force.”
- They will be part of the IRS’s “Criminal Investigation” division.
