House Republicans Seek To Destroy IRS And Taxes


A bill sponsored by Republicans in the House of Representatives would dismantle the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), do away with the federal income tax, and in its place, enact a national sales tax.

The House will vote on Georgia Republican Rep. Buddy Carter's reintroduced Fair Tax Act, which seeks to rein in the IRS, eliminate the national income tax as well as other taxes, and replace them with a single consumption tax. Fox News Digital has learned this.

In order to advance his bid for the gavel, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., forced the vote on the bill forward as part of a deal with members of the House Freedom Caucus.

"Cosponsoring this Georgia-made legislation was my first act as a Member of Congress and is, fittingly, the first bill I am introducing in the 118th Congress," Carter said in a press release.

"Instead of adding 87,000 new agents to weaponize the IRS against small business owners and middle America, this bill will eliminate the need for the department entirely by simplifying the tax code with provisions that work for the American people and encourage growth and innovation," Carter added.

"Armed, unelected bureaucrats should not have more power over your paycheck than you do," he added.

The bill specifically abolishes the IRS, which is set to hire 87,000 new agents unless congressional Republicans can block it, and imposes a national sales tax. It also repeals the national personal and corporate income taxes.

The bill also repeals the payroll, gift, and death taxes and would substitute a national consumption tax for the existing tax system.

The bill was co-signed by 11 people, including Cammack, Duncan, Good, Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, leader of the House Freedom Caucus.

The proposal demonstrates the staunch opposition that House Republicans have for the Biden administration's policies of enlarging the federal government, which include additional funding for 87,000 IRS positions.
