Oh yeah. Hiring 70,000 armed IRS Agents is really going to help Inflation!
For years, the GOP has said that we don’t need more laws or taxes. We simply need to enforce the laws we have and collect the taxes already levied. Hiring these agents is EXACTLY what the GOP preached should happen.
But, because a Democrat actually got it done, you criticize it.
Because not paying taxes is patriotic and smart.
I just got my 202o tax refund. 488 days from filing [electronically]. They need [ and WE need] those agents.
2022 = 80,000 ‘agents’ weaponized vs. Middle Class of certain political leanings (google: Lois Lerner etc.)
No matter WHAT is said or passed…GOP will obstruct, investigate,demean, belittle, and lie to make themselves look superior!
They waste more time and TAX dollars investigating irrelevant matters, THAT HAPPENED DECADES AGO, and never came up with proof and or convictions! For a party that’s all about money and greed, they sure don’t follow their own paths…
The folks to be audited are definitely not being adversely affected by inflation
This cartoon isn’t reflective of reality. Michael Ramirez is not qualified to comment on current events.
That’s what all those new IRS agents are for, you think they are going to be auditing the rich people who pay for the campaigns. Come on!
If you are upset with the price of gas remember 203 republicans voted against the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act.
INFLATION REDUCTION ACT! Another misnamed oxymoron of a sleight-of-hand from your friendly neighborhood congress! :-)
Another weak diversionary rendering featuring another meaningless inflation analogy. The major cause of inflation though, just had his castle raided, so sad.
Too bad that those agents will probably not be able to audit off-shore accounts.
Because law enforcement is bad?
They ain’t comin’ after Bill an’ Marge Feddelkopp.
Republican’s Trickle Down economics has transfered $50 trillion from the 90% to the .01% over the last 40 years of Reaganomics. The rich can steal more than the poor could ever imagine.
If the folks holding up the alligator’s jaws are multi-millionaires, then this cartoon makes some sense. Otherwise, not so much.
Republiguns are afraid the rich might be forced to pay a fair share.
At 165,661 employees, the IRS is poised to become larger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI and Border Patrol combined total employees of 158,779. Folks, rich people and corporations can afford lawyers, and accountants to keep the wolves at bay. For us, well, good luck. You’re gonna need it.
Voters biggest concerns…Inflation, gas prices, grocery prices, economy. Guess how many of these concerns are addressed by the Build Back Better – Light law just passed by 100% democrats? If your answer was zero, you win!!
87,000 more tax collectors. IRS has more employees than any other federal agencyin particular a lot more than the Border Patrol.
Perfect!! Love it
