WSJ: Dems want IRS to go “beast mode” on the middle class

August 4, 2022

The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board is slamming Democrats’ new reckless tax and spending spree for including “$45.6 billion to audit the middle class.”  

WSJ: “The main targets [of Biden’s IRS Army] will by necessity be the middle- and upper-middle class because that’s where the money is. The Joint Committee on Taxation, Congress’s official tax scorekeeper, says that from 78% to 90% of the money raised from under-reported income would likely come from those making less than $200,000 a year. Only 4% to 9% would come from those making more than $500,000.” 

NRCC battleground polling previously found Democrats’ plans to radically expand the IRS are absolutely toxic with swing voters.
