NOBODY is gonna get rid of the Internal Revnue Service…..
Republicans in Congress HAVE been trying to strave the nation’s tax collector’s forever….
This year the organiztion gets a boost in its buget (Billions) courtesy of President Biden and the 2022 Congress….
The GOPer geniuses want a ‘flat tax’….
Well the IRS will hire MORE staff to collect MORE money…..
Now the GOPer’s say the revenue people are after ‘middle class’ tax payers but we KNOIW that’s bull shit…..
The addtional money will go to hardware, software, service’s and YES….
A closer look a rich income , not middle class….
It wasn’t enough that middle class tax payers got screwed with the 2017 Republican tax ‘Reform’ effort helping the rich and corporations vs higher taxed Americans losing their interst tax decuction’s…..
(Anyone think the bipartisan effort to restore those State and Local Tax deductions survive in the ‘deal’ Congress with send to Biden soon?
Getting ‘rid of the IRS’ is just noise and dumb…..
America NEEDS a better tax collection system….
Not ANOTHER way to rise taxes on the middle class….
DeSantis is talking about a tax INCREASE for everyone ….
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he would be “welcoming” of a measure from Congress to defund the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) if he’s elected president next year.
The comments from DeSantis, who officially announced this week that he would seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2024, came during a conversation with radio host and Second Amendment advocate Dana Loesch on The Dana Show.
During the interview, DeSantis was asked whether he would sign a measure from Congress to abolish the IRS through funding means, as well as what he would replace the system with….
“I’ve supported all of the single rate proposals, I think they would be a huge improvement over the current system and I would be welcoming to take this tax system, chunk it out the window and do something that’s more favorable to the average folks.”
DeSantis, who has repeatedly taken aim at the IRS for its unfair practices and crackdown on the middle class, said last August that an effort from the Biden administration to expand the IRS with 87,000 new agents was an indication of disrespect.
“Of all the things that have come out of Washington that have been outrageous, this has got to be pretty close to the top,” DeSantis said at the time. “I think it was basically just the middle finger to the American public, that this is what they think of you.”
DeSantis – highlighting the notion that Washington is “going after you” – also suggested at the time that the new agents would be more out to target those with small businesses or those who work to make ends meet through ordinary, day-to-day jobs….
During a 2013 appearance on Fox News, DeSantis said from a “policy perspective” that he believes the IRS “is really past its point of usefulness.”
“I think we need to move to a fair or flat tax and give the government less power,” DeSantis, then a member of the House Oversight and Judiciary committee, said at the time.
Ahead of DeSantis’ announcement that he will seek the White House, several of his detractors, including a super PAC supporting former President Donald Trump’s 2024 endeavors, took aim at the governor over his support for a national sales tax during his time representing the Sunshine State’s 6th Congressional District in the House from 2013 to 2018.
“In Congress, Ron DeSantis backed a national sales tax, a 23% tax hike on almost everything you buy … from the gas station to the grocery store,” stated an ad from MAGA Inc., the leading super PAC aligned with Trump’s candidacy in the 2024 race for the White House….
