Some of the statements coming from the GOP are terribly misleading. They claim that these new IRS agents are going to target the middle class even though the Treasury Dept and everyone else has said that the "cheats" they intend to target are the higher income individuals and businesses.
In order to believe that this "target the middle class" conspiracy even has a chance of being true, you have to believe the premise that Democrats have this secret plan to target the middle class more broadly. That liberals really hate the middle class and that even though statistically, they are far more likely to be paying their fair share of their taxes, that democrats are going to force the IRS to target them just because they hate the middle class.
Or you can believe that because a higher percentage of the high income crowd are not currently paying their fair share, that the extra agents and technology that will come from this funding will be used to target them, the ones not paying their fair share.
The problem is that when idiots like Sen. Rick Scott make these idiotic statements, there are people out there that believe them. Or people start with the "you know it is possible", or I am just asking the question, how do you know the democrats aren't secretly targeting the middle class, after all, everyone on Fox News is saying that democrats hate the middle class.
Scott claimed the Biden administration will use the Democrats' newly enacted Inflation Reduction Act to create "an IRS super-police force" to "audit and investigate" ordinary Americans. "The IRS is making it very clear that you not only need to be ready to audit and investigate your fellow hardworking Americans, your neighbors and friends, you need to be ready and, to use the IRS’s words, willing, to kill them,"
