Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
While you good people were in church doing the Lord’s work, the Senate Democrats were doing the Devil’s work.
Vice President Kamala Harris broke a tie vote to pass a massive tax and spend bill.
More than $400 billion in new spending and more than $700 billion in new taxes.
But the most disturbing part involves the Internal Revenue Service. The legislation provides money to hire an army of IRS agents — 87,000.
“Those IRS agents are designed to come after you, they are not designed to come after the billionaires and the big corporations,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said on Fox News. “They are designed to come after small businesses and working families across this country.”
Cruz called the legislation a “massive power grab.”
“The Democrats are making the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, plus the Department of State, plus the FBI, plus the Border Patrol combined – the IRS is going to be bigger,” Cruz warned.
Republicans say that every middle class family and small business owner is about to have a great big target on their bank accounts.
“A key provision in Democrats’ new spending scam is their plan to hire an army of 87,000 new IRS agents to audit American families and spy on their bank accounts, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said. “This is the same IRS that was caught targeting conservatives last time Biden was in the White House.”
President Obama first weaponized the IRS — targeting conservatives and christians who opposed his policies. He wanted to punish his political enemies.
They even audited Billy Graham — America’s most beloved preacher.
I told you — the Democrats are doing the Devil’s work.
