Defund the IRS

I keep hearing the spin about the over three trillion dollars bill that will not cost us a cent. Perhaps it is the Democrat version of new math, but what it means to me is that we the people will be taxed beyond our wildest dreams. Oh yes, we will hear the spin masters claim that they will only tax the rich and we the people will not be affected. I did the math about ten years ago when this same type of talk was going on, and the answer is there are not enough rich people to tax that much. In fact my math told me that even if we take all the money away from the rich there will not be enough to feed voracious appetite of our government. This new bill will swallow the rich as though they were a drop of water. One question I ask is why does the bill need money for the IRS when it is not going to cost us a cent? The IRS is currently collecting record amounts of revenue with the meager staff of 93,000. I’d say that if they were as good as Amazon we would need less then a third of the people they currently employ. Modern technology is certainly capable of making the IRS more efficient than it is.

Another scary part of this trillion dollar beauty is the part about giving the IRS the responsibility to look into our private bank accounts to make certain that we the people don’t fall into the rich territory. They portend to see all of our statement charges of $600 or more. I contend that that amount is getting into our wallets for sure. Recently I almost had a stroke at the checkout counter of my local grocery store when the bill came in at $350. Sure we bought many items that were big dollar items and we were restocking our pantry but that was inflation striking me in the heart, and that was before we had officially recognized that inflation is happening. Now that prices are skyrocketing I fear going shopping for anything. I am considering buying a new smart TV which will no doubt cost me over $600 dollars. As inflation continues to rise, how much sense does it make to report grocery bills that exceed $600? Somehow reporting that to the IRS doesn’t make sense to me except they want to know just how much I spend so they can then squeeze me harder.

The bill started as an effort to fix our aging infrastructure, like roads and bridges. It was my contention back during the Obama years that he could have replaced every bridge and road in America with the shovel ready stimulus package he lobbied for and got. It has been several years since then and I haven’t seen any bridges being replaced in my solid blue state. The infrastructure portion of the bill is less than a trillion dollars, the remainder is pure graft. I can rationalize infrastructure as an investment in the country which would benefit our economy, but the remainder smacks of under the counter pay-off money for politicians to squander.

Here is my recommendation: Instead of supporting the increasing murder rates across the country by defunding the police, I opt that we defund the IRS instead. The money we save can come back into our empty pockets to spend on things we want and not on the things our politicians think we need. Never has any Alderman, State Representative, Congressman, Senator or local Village trustee ever asked me what I needed or desired. Yet, each year they continue to raise the taxes to pay for what? Nobody ever looks at the city ledger to determine how they can reduce the budget, but they always spend any surplus and ask for more.

While I’m at it I also recommend we defund Education. Why do we continue to pay for poor performance in inner city schools, and for teaching the communist way? At the rate America is going we won’t need any college educated kids to be picking up our trash or cutting our lawns. So why do we continue to pay colleges for professors that spread socialism to making our problems worse?

This post is way too long and I am rambling wildly about how bad things are when I should be cooking my supper. The idea of eating supper is more appealing than getting all fired up about the sorry state of our union. I can do something about supper, but I can’t do anything about the union.
