Our tax dollars at work


August 18, 2022

To The Eagle:

Joe Biden wants to hire 86,852 new IRS agents; that would more than double the amount of IRS agents we now pay to come after our money.

Let’s put that in perspective:

Eighty six thousand eight hundred fifty two is nearly two and a half times the population of Longview.

You could not put 86,852 IRS agents all in the ATT stadium. They would overflow the Seahawks Lumen Field by 18,112.

Eighty six thousand eight hundred fifty two IRS agents would be more than the entire personnel on all 11 U.S. aircraft carriers.

These IRS agents will do nothing to help the economy, nothing to reduce inflation, nothing to help America; they are there to take more money from you and me. They need more money for things like the seven billion sent to Ukraine so far, or the 82 billion in weapons and aircraft we gave to the Taliban one year ago.

Average pay of an IRS agent is 78K per year, that is $6,774,456,000.00 we will pay just in wages for these agents every single year. Plus, retirement, offices, computers etc.

In the past few months, the IRS has spent five million of our dollars on ammunition. In the IRS job listing, it includes; “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.” and “Be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.”

Think what good 86,852 school protection officers would do.

Or 86,852 border agents.

How about 86,852 Veterans affairs personnel.
