Biden's "Build Back Better" Will Double Your Chances of Being Audited by the IRS

Published in Blog on November 19, 2021 by Article V Patriot

The U.S. House just passed President Joe Biden's "Build Back Better" boondoggle, and along with increasing the deficit by billion of dollars, the legislation gives bags of cash to everyone's favorite federal agency: the IRS.

The legislation airlifts an additional $80 billion to the Internal Revenue Service to hire more agents and increase tax law enforcement. Proponents of the legislation describe the additional funding as a way to audit "wealthy" Americans and ensure everyone "pays their fair share."

But according to Republican congressmen on the Ways and Means Committee, this expanded audit capability will impact lower and middle-income earners just as much.

"The proposal will lead to an additional 1.2 million IRS audits each year, nearly half of which will hit middle class families making less than $75,000," the memo states. "What does that mean for Americans? More than double the chance of being audited. And not just for the rich.

In other words, Biden is using our hard-earned money to fund an agency dedicated to harassing the American people. 

Here's an idea: instead of sending more money to the IRS, why don't we lower taxes, simplify the tax code, and de-fund our friendly federal tax collectors?

Congress will never have the courage to implement these kinds of reforms. They benefit from a complicated taxing system, and they need our money to fund their social welfare agenda.

Fortunately, we don't need their approval to limit the power and jurisdiction of the IRS and every other federal agency. An Article V Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that do exactly that.

These amendments, once ratified by 38 states after the Convention, can limit the authority of the federal government as a whole. This would eliminate some agencies altogether and restrict the funding and authority of many others.

The federal government has no right to construct a convoluted tax code and then harass Americans for not being able to follow it. We need to limit the power and jurisdiction of the IRS, and the best way to do that is via an Article V Convention of States.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
