HUGE: GOP House Votes To Repeal Army Of 87,000 IRS Agents

The Republican-controlled House voted to eliminate the billions of dollars that the Democrats had planned to spend on the IRS's new army of agents. As House Speaker Kevin McCarthy noted, the action was the "very first act" of his new Congress.

In their first act as the new Congress, House Republicans voted to eliminate the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) "army of 87,000 agents." Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated that the actions were the fulfillment of the promises made to the American people.

“Tells you all the things you need to know,” McCarthy said, as members of the new Congress celebrated the first act of their new government.

Representing the House, Steve Scalise noted that every member of the Democratic party voted against the bill.

After promising to cut the IRS' budget, the Republican-controlled House was able to do so. The increase in the agency's funding over the next decade had been criticized by conservatives, who warned that it would lead to the targeting of individuals.

In August 2022, Congress passed the $700 billion "Inflation Reduction Act." This bill would not reduce inflation, but it would increase the government's spending in various ways. One of these is the IRS's expansion, which would make it the biggest government agency.

In December, McCarthy noted that the House would vote to eliminate the IRS's 87,000 agents on the first day of the new Congress.
