Ron DeSantis Gives Democrats A Taste Of Their Own Medicine After Controversial Vote

( During an event in Fort Pierce, Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis told reporters how he felt about those who voted for the so-called Inflation Reduction Act, notably taking issue with the large sum of funding the IRS will receive to hire over 80,000 new employees, according to Western Journal.

“If they go after you, a lot of times they’re going to be able to find something, especially if you don’t have an account or you don’t have lawyers,” he said. “So I thought it was really, really reprehensible that they’d be mobilizing 87,000 IRS agents.”

“I think every member of Congress that voted for that bill should be required to be audited every year by the IRS,” DeSantis continued.

The bill was voted on the party line, meaning every Democratic politician voted in favor of it. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Republicans, who voted against the bill, voted against “Mother Earth.”

The Biden administration claims that the money for the IRS will “improve taxpayer service, modernize outdated technological infrastructure, and increase equity in the tax system by enforcing the tax laws against those high-earners, large corporations, and complex partnerships who today do not pay what they owe.”

Critics of this bill are not buying it, however, as the IRS was recently seen recruiting agents where deadly force was necessary. The agency put out a job posting on their website last month, listing that one of the “major duties” was to “carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.” After controversy put the agency in the spotlight, they removed the post.

Congressional Republicans have also questioned why the agency is stockpiling $700,000 worth of ammo adding to the five million rounds of ammo the agency already has.

DeSantis claimed that the bill would target Americans that the government did not like. “They’re not putting very much might down at the border I can tell you that right now. But they want to be able to do it and unleash them on American taxpayers,” DeSantis said.
