U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines, a member of the Senate Finance Committee, issued the following statement today after Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner Danny Werfel revealed the IRS’ $80 billion 10-year spending plan.
“The Biden administration has once again shown where their priorities lie—expanding the federal government and exerting more control over the lives of hardworking Montanans. Rather than hiring more border patrol agents to tackle the southern border crisis or addressing the massive backlog of tax returns that accumulated over the COVID-19 pandemic, the IRS plans to deploy an army of tens of thousands of IRS agents to increase audits on Montana families and reach into the pocketbooks of Americans. After suffering under the crushing weight of Bidenflation the past two years, the last thing Montanans want or deserve is more government in their lives. It’s clear that this is big government at its worst and I hope to see all of my colleagues oppose this wasteful use of taxpayer dollars.”
