The so-called “Inflation Reduction Act,” which U.S. Senate candidate Mandela Barnes supports, is the latest tax-and-spend bill from the Democrats that will actually increase inflation in the near future and raise tax rates on nearly every income bracket. In addition, the bill also contains an $80 billion “investment” in the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to hire 86,000 more IRS agents to produce more audits and track down people who haven’t paid their taxes, more than doubling the size of the IRS.
If anyone knows about not paying their taxes, it’s Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes. In 2018 he was apparently too busy running for lieutenant governor to even file his property taxes. That’s not Barnes’ only brush with blowing off the tax man. Barnes also paid no income tax in 2018. And in June 2019, the City of Milwaukee sent a delinquent tax bill to Barnes, stating that he failed to pay at least $2,225 in property taxes, interest, and penalties on his Milwaukee condo.
Will Mandela Barnes continue to support this bill with the proposal to double the size of the IRS?
“While Mandela Barnes supports piling on more taxes for his constituents to double the size of the IRS and pay for Green New Deal-type policies, he hasn’t even bothered to pay his own. It’s a slap in the face to the people he claims to represent.” – Republican Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Mike Marinella
