VAN DREW CONDEMNS ANOTHER DEM ATTEMPT TO WEAPONIZE THE IRS
August 9, 2022 — Congressman Van Drew issued the following statement in response to the Democrats’ Inflation Enhancement Act that will send $80 billion taxpayer dollars to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to hire 87,000 new agents to harass and spy on Americans and small businesses.
“Whether it’s using taxpayer dollars to provide I.D.’s for illegal immigrants, or providing housing and transportation, this administration never ceases to amaze the American people with how little it cares about protecting them and our country,” said Congressman Van Drew. “In the Democrats newest version of Build Back Better, it spends over $750 billion on Green New Deal provisions, raises taxes, and hires additional IRS agents to go after middle-class Americans, yet does not allocate a single penny to assist our underwhelmed and overworked border patrol agents. This bill is a total sham and the American people will not fall for it.
“We are in the middle of a recession. There is no reason that taxpayer dollars need to go towards hiring an IRS army that will only end up targeting hard-working Americans who are just trying to afford gas and groceries.”
