Dems Poised To Make IRS Larger Than Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol Combined

Manchin-backed Inflation Reduction Act would more than double agency's size

Joseph Simonson • August 6, 2022 5:00 am

If Democrats have their way, one of the most detested federal agencies—the Internal Revenue Service—will employ more bureaucrats than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined.

Under the Inflation Reduction Act negotiated by Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.), the agency would receive $80 billion in funding to hire as many as 87,000 additional employees. The increase would more than double the size of the IRS workforce, which currently has 78,661 full-time staffers, according to federal data.

The additional IRS funding is integral to the Democrats' reconciliation package. A Congressional Budget Office analysis found the hiring of new IRS agents would result in more than $200 billion in additional revenue for the federal government over the next decade. More than half of that funding is specifically earmarked for "enforcement," meaning tax audits and other responsibilities such as "digital asset monitoring."

That would make the IRS one of the largest federal agencies. The Pentagon houses roughly 27,000 employees, according to the Defense Department, while a human resources fact sheet says the State Department employs just over 77,243 staff. The FBI employs approximately 35,000 people, according to the agency's website, and Customs and Border Protection says it employs 19,536 Border Patrol agents.

Democrats hate the middle class.

Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.

The Democrat Communist Party needs more enforcers. This is just the beginning of the end.

Got to wondering why the need for the 80+ thousands of newly added IRS agents and came up with this ...

People need to understand that they are Not going after the wealthy.

The wealthy have not grown so much that the government can't possibly be looking in that direction!

So what are they preparing for?

They are going after the poor and middle class folks!

Folks who, because of government created soaring inflation are working 2nd and 3rd jobs to survive!

Folks working off the books to supplement their income!

Working part time because one and sometimes two jobs no longer suffice!

They just can't survive on the income that they use to earn!

There are millions of, if not billions of dollars not being reported according to government insiders!

They simply can't allow these folks to hide assets the government believes it should be able to tax!

Think they'll go after the illegals?


Oh, one more thing ..

That Great jobs report?

Those 2nd and 3rd jobs are part of the reason for it!

LOOK HOW MANY JOBS WE HAVE CREATED!

There are other reasons for the Wonderful, "Biden is a savior" jobs report but that is for a later discussion!

given and I don't need permission from politicians to exercise them!"
