Brian Andersson, a former New York City Commissioner, did an interview with Newsmax on Tuesday where he took an opportunity to criticize the Democratic Party’s Inflation Reduction Act due to a provision it contains where it would provide funding to hire additional IRS agents.
Because the last thing anyone in this country wants is to see the Internal Revenue Service’s ranks swell with new folks trained in all the various ways to screw us out of money we break our backs for without even seeing it first.
It’s also creepy that they are trying to fill out their ranks as news continues to come out about how they are storing massive amounts of ammunition. Why do tax collectors need to be armed to the teeth?
According to Newsmax, Andersson appeared on “National Report” where he said “first we’re insulted by this thing being called the Inflation Reduction Act. All right, now you got us, right? Now we know you’re full of it. But then they were … hiring agents to improve Social Security, maybe the Post Office will get a little bit better.”
He then stated, “Ask the man in the street what part of government they fear most, they’ll say the IRS. So we’re going to add 89,000 new agents, armed agents, you can fill a stadium with that many agents. Some populations, Duluth, Minnesota, Trenton, New Jersey, Norwalk, Connecticut, their populations are barely 89,000 people. People feel this, and they’re seeing it for what it is.”
A report by Forbes revealed that the new legislation will actually set aside a whopping $80 billion to the IRS to increase enforcement, operational improvements, customer service — that’s hilarious seeing as how the best customer service they can provide is to not exist — and system modernization.

Just to provide a little context so you understand how massive this amount of money is that’s being set aside for this expansion, the current yearly budget for the IRS is sitting at around $12.6 billion. This $80 billion is six times that.
“How can the IRS spend all of that? You guessed it, the bill says a whopping $45.6 billion will be for enforcement, and make no mistake, enforcement is the main directive from Democrats to the IRS. Get bigger, tougher and faster at collecting, and make them pay. Meanwhile, the IRS could be ramping up its police power too. The IRS is a key part of the government, but not one you usually associate with law enforcement and guns,” the Forbes report said.
So it’s not bad enough to be threatened with prison time for not handing over your hard-earned money to the government, now if you do it, you might have the IRS police, armed heavily, demanding that you hand over your money at gunpoint.
The federal government approved armed robbery.
“Only the Criminal Investigation Division of the IRS can carry guns, but the IRS has been buying more guns and ammunition in recent years, snapping up nearly $700,000 in ammo in early 2022. The bullet buy prompted Representatives Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Jeff Duncan (R-SC) to introduce the “Disarm the IRS Act,” to prohibit the IRS from buying ammunition,” the report continued.
Is it any wonder that Andersson is so disgusted by this legislation?
