Washington, D.C. – America First Policy Institute (AFPI) and America First Works (AFW), the advocacy arm of AFPI, are releasing a new video highlighting President Biden’s disastrous so-called Inflation Reduction Act and its effect on low and middle-income families throughout America. The bill would weaponize the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in unprecedented ways, adding 87,000 new IRS agents and allocating $45.6 billion for IRS enforcement. Hardworking American families are already struggling with the largest recession in 40 years, and now many will soon be chief targets of IRS audits.

“Our country cannot support the Biden Administration’s failed policies that have created the current economic crisis, which will now weaponize our system of government against the American people,” said Brooke Rollins, President and CEO of the AFPI and former Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council for former President Donald J. Trump. “At AFPI, we have heard many incredible stories of people who fled their native countries to escape the same type of authoritarianism they are sadly experiencing today. The far Left continues to peddle their false promises through grossly misnamed bills such as the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ that only raise taxes and further bloat our already inflated bureaucracies. Instead of helping American families, this legislation unfairly targets the low and middle-income class. It’s time to save America and defeat this Big Government Socialism Bill.”

“American families are hurting, and the Biden Administration’s solution is to add 87,000 new IRS agents who will be weaponized to target low-income minority communities throughout the country. The left claims to support the working class, but their actions clearly show otherwise. President Biden refers to his so-called Inflation Reduction Act as a ‘game changer,’ and he’s absolutely right. To middle and low-income families, the cruel IRS targeting that’s sure to come will undoubtedly change their lives.”
