Grover Norquist on 87K New IRS Agents: ‘Restaurants and Barber Shops, That’s Their Target’
NORQUIST: "Well, the -- yeah, the IRS has long said that they expected that small businesses and independent contractors were their target. They want 1.2 million more audits done here. Well, there are only 700 billionaires and 500 members of the Fortune 500 large companies. That leaves an awful lot of space for 1.2 million audits. There aren't that many rich people, there aren't that many big corporations in America. They are targeting people that they keep telling us they think are with restaurants and barber shops and so on. That's their target. And we know this because the every single Democrat in the Senate voted against and to defeat a amendment, which said this law will not allow any increase in audits on people making less than $400,000 a year, Biden's promise, every single Democrat voted no. So we know exactly what they think this will do and who they're going after. They voted that way, every single Democrat Senator."
