(WND News Center) – Congressional firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene is warning Americans that, under the Democrats’ new tax-them-all scheme, a “new IRS force” of 87,000 agents will be coming after them.

“And they’re buying more guns and ammo too,” Rep. Greene (R-GA) explained in a report in the New York Post.

The new army is being created by the Democrats’ reconciliation bill already adopted by the Senate.

The Joint Committee on Taxation, a nonpartisan watchdog, says up to 90 percent of the billions in additional taxes the IRS is expected to collect will come from small businesses with incomes of less than $200,000 per year.

Greene said, on social media, “87,000 IRS agents will be hired with $80 billion taxpayer dollars when the Senate Reconciliation bill passes this weekend … Lower to middle income Americans and small businesses will be the primary targets of Democrats’ new IRS force.”

She continued, “This new version of Biden’s Build Back Better more appropriately named Bring Back Blackouts [because] of it’s insane foolish energy failing agenda will force Americans literally in the dark.”

The Democrats’ oddly named “Inflation Reduction Act,” because studies show it actually will increase inflation, is the result of Democrat pressure on Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat who earlier had resisted his party’s demands to spend trillions of dollars the nation doesn’t have on a Democrat wish list of “green” and other programs.

He finally caved and agreed to support this tax-and-spend program that was adopted by the Senate on a 51-50 vote over the weekend.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has officially crossed a line by weaponizing the FBI to target America’s most influential conservative leader — former president Donald Trump, a private citizen — without due process and with obvious political bias.  

SIGN this petition to FBI Director Christopher Wray - condemn this blatant political policing againt former President Trump. 

This single act has sent an unmistakable signal that anyone who holds a dissenting political belief from the leftist regime can have his or her life ruined by the Deep State — forcing them to defend themselves from a faceless FBI attack-arm of the federal government.  

We cannot stand for the complete corruption and weaponization of America's law enforcement, and especially not the FBI. We must stand united, bold, and patriotic — in the name of liberty, the rule of law, and American Greatness. 

SEND A BOLD MESSAGE TODAY: WE ABSOLUTELY CONDEMN THE DESPICABLE FBI RAID ON A PRIVATE AMERICAN CITIZEN — AND WE WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING FOR AMERICA FIRST! 

This kind of weaponization of federal agencies against private citizens who hold a dissenting worldview is seen only in third-world countries.  

This is exactly why Americans must use their voices and shout even more loudly that this country is worth saving from the ideologues on the radical left who care only about power and control.   

American patriots will continue standing in the way of the left's attempt at hostile takeover, and will always defend America from her enemies — both foreign and domestic.  

SIGN NOW: Our Founding Fathers added their names to the Declaration of Independence, and now more than ever is it important to add your name to the growing list of patriots who uphold our inalienable rights and the promise of self-government.  

Stand up against the targeting of private American citizens from FBI raids - we refuse to back down! 

Thank you. 

P.S. — Nobody is safe from politically motivated attacks under the current DOJ. And with 87,000 new IRS agents joining the executive branch, the unaccountable federal government is only growing. Now is the time to push back before it’s too late! SIGN NOW AND STAND STRONG TOGETHER!

The new taxes

It is Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) that has listed the new taxes Americans will pay, including a multitude of taxes that will prove President Joe Biden was not speaking truthfully when promised not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 a year.

Those include a $6.5 billion natural gas tax that will hit household energy costs – a “regressive tax on American oil and gas development” that will “drive up the cost of household energy bills.”

“The tax hike violates President Biden’s tax pledge to any American making less than $400,000 per year. Biden administration officials have repeatedly admitted taxes that raise consumer energy prices are in violation of President Biden’s $400,000 tax pledge,” ATR reported.

Then there’s the “$12 billion crude oil tax” that also will raise house household energy costs.

This tax, too, “violates President Biden’s tax pledge to any American making less than $400,000 per year.”

And there’s the $1.2 billion coal tax that “will increase household energy bills,” the ATR said.

“The bill would more than double current excise taxes on coal production. Under the Democrat proposal, the tax rate on coal from subsurface mining would increase from $0.50 per ton to $1.10 per ton while the tax rate on coal from surface mining would increase from $0.25 per ton to $0.55 per ton.”

Then there’s the 15 percent “corporate alternative minimum tax on the financial statement income of American businesses reporting $1 billion in profits for the past three years.”

The ATR said, “The cost of this tax increase will be borne by working families in the form of higher prices, fewer jobs, and lower wages. A Tax Foundation report from last December found a 15 percent book tax would reduce GDP by 0.1 percent and kill 27,000 jobs.”

The ultimate cost to consumers? $313 billion.

Also in the bullseye are retirement programs, because of a new $124 billion stock tax – which also will target union retirement plans.

And then there’s the fact that many new drugs and medical treatments may not be developed because of Biden’s 95 percent federal excise tax on American pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Mid-sized and family businesses will pay an additional $52 billion for the Democrats’ changes to passthrough businesses with declared losses.
