Earlier today, it was reported that the IRS has stockpiled over 5 million rounds of ammunition, and has spent $725,000 on ammunition this year alone.
The report found that over a ten-year period, the IRS has stockpiled a total of $11 million in ammunition.
Many people were rightfully confused at the IRS’ purchase of millions of dollars worth of ammunition.
Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Fl.) said that he “thought the heaviest artillery an IRS agent would need would be a calculator, not $725,000 worth of ammunition.”

Now, it has been revealed that of the 81,000 IRS agents that were hired under the Build Back Better-lite bill passed by the Senate, 70,000 will be armed.
The bill still has to be passed by the House, though it will pass easily if Democrats vote in uniformity as they did in the Senate.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) pointed out that the bill would arm 70,000 IRS agents in a recent interview with The Post Millenial.
The Post Millennial Reports–
“The poorly named Inflation Reduction Act, passed over the weekend by Senate Democrats, is slated to create positions for nearly 87,000 new IRS agents, 70,000 of whom will be armed.
This brings the total to nearly 170,000 under the bureau of tax collection. The cost of this new initiative will be about $80 billion, and it’s all part of a bill meant to lower costs to Americans.
This was noted as well by Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who told The Post Millennial that “The bill is terrible. It’s basically Joe Biden Build Back Better agenda, that a lot of Republicans called ‘build that broke.”
The Joint Committee on Taxation has given an estimate of the plan, saying that “between 78% and 90% of the additional $200 billion that the IRS will collect as a result of its bolstered workforce will come from small businesses making less than $200,000 per year, according to the New York Post.”
Democrats want to let violent criminals run amok in our streets, but want to arm 70,000 IRS agents to oppress middle-class Americans.
