Give Republicans a Foot…

Never give Republicans a foot…

The Coup Klux Klan is crying crocodile tears again:

Republicans have long disliked the tax-collection agency, and have been critical of President Biden’s proposal to give the IRS significantly more resources. Now, GOP lawmakers are amplifying their attacks on the IRS in light of an unauthorized disclosure of tax data to ProPublica, arguing that it undermines taxpayers’ ability to have confidence in the agency.

Uh, I think that the problem undermining taxpayers confidence is not the IRS per se, but the tax code which is written (or underwritten as the case might be) by the Republicans’ 3-LsLawyers, Lobbyists and Loopholes.

No, the Republicans are worried that if the IRS has more agents, they might collect more taxes from the Republicans donors. There is a reason why the GOP has defunded the IRS over multiple administrations.

Anyway, I was wondering how they would try to spin ProPublica’s plutocrat tax story, and now we know. They are not arguing the facts, and Dawg forbid they are not arguing about the tax code, they are arguing about… confidence?

“This is an astonishing breach of trust that should make taxpayers very concerned,” Rep. Kevin Brady (Texas), the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, told reporters Friday.

I believe, Kev, that the taxpayers are very concerned that they have been fleeced so that Jeff Bezos can be launched into space for the hell of it.

“I think this kills the effort,” said Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist.

…while filling a nearby bathtub.

    America needs a bath tub big enough to drown Grover Norquist along with his notions about tax increases in.
