Bill has $80 billion in funding for 87,000 more IRS agents
s the massive infrastructure bill passed the US House
containing a myriad of and tax increases -- including $80 billion in funding for 87,000 more IRS agents
to "spy" on Americans and giving more power to the IRS
an Oregon State Senator is calling for a member of the Oregon delegation to the US Senate to vote against the measure.
State Senator Fred Girod (R-Lyons) is calling on U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, chairman of the Senate Finance committee, to reject proposals to spy on Americans’ bank accounts.
“Oregonians do not want their bank accounts spied on. Senator Wyden must ensure these proposals do not make it into Biden’s blowout spending bill. There are better ways to enforce tax law than a dragnet operation that would lead to unnecessary audits of regular Oregonians.
“If this proposal passes, the legislature must take immediate action to ensure Oregonians' privacy is protected. Legislative Democrats, the Attorney General, and the Treasurer must pledge to not enforce this extreme proposal. Oregonians deserve better than this invasion of privacy.”
Wyden, who is 72 years old has been a US Senator from Oregon since 1996. Prior to that, Wyden was a member of Congress from Oregon's 3rd District -- Multnomah County -- since 1981.
