IRS To Hire 87,000 New Agents
Cruz, sums up what this bill that he put in an amendment to eliminate the IRS provisions, it failed, Ted Cruz on the Senate floor cut number 7. Madam president, there are a lot of bad things in this bill, but fewer worse than the proposal by Democrats in this bill to double the size of the IRS and create 87,000 new IRS agents. I guarantee you citizens that every one of our states, if you ask them, what do they want? They don't want 87,000 new IRS agents. And they're not being created to audit billionaires or giant corporations. They're being created to audit you. The House ways and means committee, the minorities put out an estimate that under this bill, there will be 1.2 million new audits for per year with over 700,000 of those new audits falling on taxpayers making $75,000 or less.
