The new Congress started things off with a bang by passing its first bill, which is intended to slash billions of dollars from the IRS that the Biden Administration included in its Inflation Reduction Act last year. A trillion dollars each year goes uncollected because the IRS doesn't have the resources to go after tax cheating wealthy individuals and corporations.
A TRILLION DOLLARS!!!! Biden's initiative is designed to change that by adding more personnel to the highly underfunded department.
Republicans have vilified the IRS for years and have slashed funding any chance they got. The reason why is painfully obvious. Tax cheaters contribute to their political campaigns and expect something in return. In other words, they don't want to get audited and they know they won't if they hamstring the agency.
If this isn't cause for an uprising by the middle class, I don't know what is.
