Washington, January 10, 2023 | Anthony Foti
WASHINGTON D.C. – U.S. Representative Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-09) issued the following statement after voting for H.R. 23, the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act, legislation rescinding Joe Biden’s plan to unleash a legion of 87,000 new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents to harass, insult, threaten and audit families and small businesses:
“I am proud to have voted to strip away Biden’s plan to empower tens of thousands of authoritarian bureaucrats at the IRS to advance this administration’s radical agenda by harassing and spying on hardworking Americans.
Democrats have a long and sorry history of weaponizing the IRS to go after political enemies so it’s not surprising that every single democrat voted in favor of this latest effort to have the IRS come after your money. We don’t need more IRS agents pestering our citizens, instead we need 87,000 more Border Patrol Agents fighting the invasion along our southern border,” concluded Congressman Gosar.
