House reverses $70 billion funding package for 87,000 IRS agents

Published in Blog on January 10, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

The Internal Revenue Service could be out $70 billion and could no longer be able to expand the federal agency to a whole new, massive level after the House voted to cut funding.

The House kicked off its session by passing the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act on Monday with a vote of 221-210. If it passes the Senate, the act would prevent the IRS from using the funds passed in last year's Inflation Reduction Act, ultimately barring the agency from conducting new audits and encroaching on Americans' finances. 

The Inflation Reduction Act allotted $80 billion to the IRS over 10 years to crack down on tax evasion, which means the agency would still be provided with $10 billion.

If the federal government was actually concerned with monitoring financial compliance, the first thing they would do is investigate their fellow co-workers in Congress who magically buy and sell stocks at the perfect time over and over again. This past fall, a bill to ban members of Congress from trading stocks failed to make it to a floor vote, not shocking to anyone. 

Although the House reversal of IRS funds is great news for Americans, it's not the complete and long-term solution to federal government abuses – especially since it still needs the approval of the Democrat-controlled Senate. We know that every two years, the House of Representatives changes and can alter the direction of the nation in a matter of seconds.

While people say it's up to voters on Election Day, it's truly up to the grassroots across America to decide if an even greater step should be taken to change the structure of our abusive government. Convention of States is working to make structural improvements to the system through an Article V convention.

Please join us in calling for a Convention of States to prevent power-seeking bureaucrats from taking over our lives through government expansion. Sign the COS petition below.

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

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