'A MIDDLE FINGER TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE': DeSantis Blasts Biden for 87,000 New IRS Agents

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.18.22

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted President Biden’s plan to add 87,000 new agents to the IRS during a speech on Wednesday; the Sunshine State Gov says it’s a “middle finger to the American people.”

“Why would they do that?” DeSantis said of Biden’s plan. “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.”

“And I think of all the things that have come out of Washington that have been outrageous, this has got to be pretty close to the top,” he added. “And I think it was basically just a middle finger to the American public that this is what they think of you. All these problems we have to deal with, and they think the way is to do 87,000 IRS agents. There’s going to be more people in the IRS than in a lot of these other agencies combined now.”

“They’re not putting very much money down at the border; I can tell you that right now,” DeSantis commented. “But they want to be able to do it, unleash them on American taxpayers. So that’s wrong.”

“Fortunately, that’s one of the reasons we don’t have an income tax, because if you don’t have an income tax, you don’t empower revenue agents,” he said, referencing Florida.  “Once you do that income tax, that gives them the ability to really go in and potentially target … And it’s going to be targeted at the people the government doesn’t like.”
