    House Republicans Introduce Legislation To Redirect Funds From IRS To Border Patrol

    House Republicans led by New York Rep. Claudia Tenney introduced legislation Wednesday to redirect funds intended for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as the border crisis worsens.

    The legislation, first obtained by the Daily Caller, would rescind all of the unobligated funds under the Inflation Reduction Act, which Biden signed in July, for new IRS enforcement activities. These funds would be reappropriated for the CBP to hire additional agents to secure the Southern Border.

    Republicans have expressed particular concern about the more than $80 billion in new funding for the IRS, which will allow the agency to hire up to 87,000 new employees. Although Democrats claim the increased funding will increase federal revenue and allow Congress to pay down the federal debt, GOP officials argue that middle-class and poorer Americans will face more audits.

    “The Biden administration’s failure to secure the border and enforce our immigration laws has created an unmitigated disaster at our Southern Border that is impacting communities across the country. Meanwhile, President Biden and Democrats in Congress are ignoring the problem and instead giving tens of billions of dollars to the IRS so that they can audit an additional 700,000 working class Americans,” Tenney told the Caller before introducing the legislation.


    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

        But at least it lets the voters know who is on their side and who isn't. I just hope moderate Democrats are paying attention.

          Just when I think Reps are a lost cause, that gives me at least some hope.

            The question is, will they reintroduce it if they win the majority?

                If they don't, they'll sure look like fools.

                    Dems will probably make a compromise deal for more military spending, and Reps will fold like a cheap suit.

                        Waste of taxpayer dollars for a bill that won't pass, in order to redirect funds from one wasteful government agency that screws over people to another wasteful government agency that screws over people.

                        How unsurprising.

                            The difference is we really need help on the border. The IRS doesn't need 87,000 agents.
