Posey releases statement after bill passed House of Representatives
BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA – Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) released a statement after supporting the The Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act that passed the House of Representatives.
The legislation repeals a provision of the Inflation Reduction Act providing for 87,000 new IRS enforcement agents passed during the last Congress.
“Weaponizing the IRS to target and harass American families and small businesses to pay for Washington’s insatiable appetite to spend money it doesn’t have is wrong. Many Americans are hurting as a result of the Biden Administration’s costly and failed policies which have produced the worst inflation in 40 years. Tonight, the new House majority is making good on its promise to reverse this trend and put our nation on a better course,” said Congressman Posey, an original cosponsor of the bill.
