The Biden admin knows you are stupid. What is my evidence? Allow me to lay it out.
The “infrastructure” bill as drawn contains a provision to allow the IRS to wander through your checking account if you attained the monumental balance of $600.
The admin cites no reason why the IRS should be granted the authority to do this; they do not accuse you of a crime; they have no basis under current law or the Constitution to engage in this “search” of your private information, but they say, “So what?”
That level, $600, draws in virtually every checking account in the entire country. If you make $12,000 a year and deposit your paycheck, you will have a checking account balance of more than $600.
They also stuck in a provision for 80,000 additional IRS agents to conduct the rummaging.
The Biden admin and their IRS jack boot proposal has been receiving some bad press — haha, even from this bunch of in-the-bag media clowns — so they revised their proposal.
Now, instead of a $600 account balance they propose that your bank send a printout of 100% of your checking account activity to the IRS — if you process more than $10,000 in transactions in a calendar year.
That’s it. That’s the REVISED PROPOSAL. If you deposit and/or write checks for an aggregate total of more than $10,000 in the calendar year, the admin wants your bank to send the IRS a printout of every deposit, interest receipt, and check you write for the whole bloody year.
That’s Plan B. WTF is Plan C/D/E/F?
You will be quick to note that the same chap who makes $12,000 per year is still in the noose under this “revised” proposal and they will still hire 80,000 additional agents.
It happened, dear reader, because the Biden admin knows you are stupid and it has a lockstep majority in the House and Senate and controls the White House. This is what happens when you give liberals all the organs of political power in the country. Hire clowns, get a circus.
Remember when Joe Biden was going to be a moderate, a uniter, reach across the aisle, going to tamp down the rhetoric, be Mr. Reasonable, take the vitriol out of politics? Yeah, well that never happened.
And, therein lies the real challenge. What are you going to do about it?
Me: Write a blog post alerting folks to this nonsense; communicate with my elected officials; and, vote these morons out of office as quickly as possible.
But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Do something.
