The Democratic Party has a longstanding history of using the IRS to go after political rivals. Americans witnessed this firsthand under the administration of former President Barack Obama.
Now, it’s happening again under the Biden administration.
Because Democrats currently control Congress, they’ve been able to puff up the IRS with 87,000 new agents. The kicker in all of this is Democrats want Americans to think these new IRS agents are designed to go after just millionaires and billionaires.
87,000 is many times more millionaires and billionaires in the United States combined. In reality, Democrats added these agents to the IRS in order to go after the middle class and get as much extra money from everyday folks as possible.
Now, in the final weeks of the midterm elections, Democrats are being called out accordingly.
Sharing the Truth With the American People
Conservative PACs, like Our American Century, and the Senate Leadership Fund are holding Democrats accountable for how they have chosen to weaponize the IRS.
In battleground states like Ohio, Georgia, and Arizona, voters are receiving ads that warn about the consequences of these new IRS agents. At a time when Americans are barely making it, the IRS won’t hesitate to target them with audits and other forms of intimidation.

At the end of the day, no matter how much Democrats say they’re just going to tax the 1%, even the 1% doesn’t have enough money for all the spending the left wants to do. The bill was always going to land at the feet of the middle class, unless Democrats are stopped.
White House Doubles Down on Lies
As Republicans are calling out Democrats’ true intentions with new IRS agents, the Biden administration is repeating lies.
In an effort to provide cover for Democratic candidates, the White House alleges only individuals with incomes above $400,000 will be given attention by the IRS. There’s no real evidence to support this.
Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock voted with Biden to hire 87,000 new IRS agents – almost enough to fill up the whole University of Georgia stadium.

The Biden administration likewise claims that 87,000 new agents are designed to offset certain IRS workers planning to resign or retire. This claim, too, is dubious and comes from a White House with a long, consistent record of lying to cover its tracks.
