As H.R. 5376 (117th), The Build Back Bankrupt Act remains stalled in the Senate, with Skopos Labs giving it a 9% chance of clearing the upper chamber, Sens. Manchin (D-WV) and Sinema (D-AZ) must be feeling kind of like Ukraine these days.
Democrats are the Russians, Republicans are NATO, and Dems are saying, “Hey, you know you’re with us.” And Manchin and Sinema saying, “Oh, IDK, maybe we’re with them.”
The bill does a lot. An awful lot. Way too much. The government has already done more than enough. It’s like, thank you, Washington. You really shouldn’t have. No really. You really shouldn’t have. You have done plenty. Would you please stop trying to help us build back, stay out of our way, please? Thank you. Thank you very much.
It is to keep cracking the economy harder until it finally buckles. It’s a break one of the seven seals on the book of economic apocalypse tier Washington pork-barrel spending package. If the Senate saves us from it, they’ll be in an excellent constitutional form as the brakes on runaway bandwagons and gravy trains.
One of the major provisions in the bill that would fundamentally alter the United States of America by radically shifting capital flows toward Washington D.C. at a time when that has already happened at a volume and pace more radical than anything we’ve ever seen is the appropriation of some seventy-nine billion dollars ($79,000,000,000) to beef up the Internal Revenue Service.
The Biden Administration’s proposal and the White House wants to hire 86,852 more IRS agents with private sector money to help the Treasury take even more of the private sector’s money.
As Americans for Tax Reform pointed out earlier this year, that’s more IRS agents “than the entire personnel on all 11 U.S. aircraft carriers.” So why does the IRS need that much muscle? To wage war on successful small businesses and professionals as if tax increases don’t trickle down to everyone else in the form of higher prices like we’re already seeing?
