Washington D.C.– Congressman Pete Sessions (TX-17) released the following statement after becoming an original co-sponsor and voting for H.R.23, the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act, which repeals all funding for the Internal Revenue Service Agency’s (IRS) new 87,000 agents.
Congressman Sessions said, “The Democrats attempted to supercharge the IRS with a massive infusion of taxpayer dollars that would have resulted in 1.2 MILLION more audits, which would have disproportionally burdened taxpayers who make less than $75,000 per year. For years the left has attempted to use the agency and tax code as political weapons. House Republicans and I have taken the first step to push back against leftist overreach at the outset of this new 118th Congress.”
