Dem Rep. Himes: GOP Is Trying to ‘Make It Easier for People to Cheat on Their Taxes’ by Opposing IRS Expansion

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Katy Tur Reports,” Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) verbally expressed that Republicans want to “make it more facile for people to cheat on their taxes” because they’re assailing the provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act “that would provide the IRS with a lot more, essentially, auditors to catch the tax cheats.”

Himes verbalized, “Right now, if you tuned into the debate on the House floor, “Republicans” can’t argue against cutting prices for prescription drugs for seniors. They want to, but it’s hard for them to argue against making an investment against the devastation caused by climate change. So, instead, they’re fixated on — for a party that claims to be the party of law and authoritatively mandate, they’re fixated on the element that would provide the IRS with a lot more, essentially, auditors to catch the tax cheats. And Katy, you ken this, but, there are estimates that, every year, the United States fails to receive 400, 500, $600 billion in tax revenue because people cheat. So, that verbally expresses to me that’s what my Republican colleagues are fixated on right now. Why they would optate to scarcely make it more facile for people to cheat on their taxes is beyond me, but here we are.”
