The new congress kept its first promise, which was to eliminate 87,000 new IRS agents. Yesterday they voted along party lines to do just that.
Except they will not be eliminated because the Democratic leadership in the Senate will not bring the retraction to a vote. So, the argument about the $1.7 trillion dollar bill passed on the last day of the 117th congress will prevail. With the new 72 hour wait rule the bill would not have passed.
Now, if you think 87,000 new IRS agents is not a good idea, remember this, your vote counts. America voted on leaders and a party that thinks this is a good idea. Did you vote for that?
Then the new speaker announced last night that he will proceed with plans to oust Reps.Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell from the Intel Committee and remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs panel.
Now if anyone cries foul, my question is, did you cry foul when Nancy Pelosi kept people off committees? If you did, I will listen, if not, your bias is showing.
Wait, Now They Found What? Where?
They found classified documents in President Biden’s former office? Wasn’t it the President who said about finding the documents in Trump’s possession “how could that have possibly happened?”
If you justify either one as okay, then you are showing prejudice. It was wrong for Trump and it is wrong for Biden.
Let’s see now what politicians say. Remember Hillary and Nancy Pelosi were both clear on the Trump finding that “no one is above the law.” I assume Joe Biden is someone.

That a bipartisan Senate group is visiting the border today to gather facts? They are going a few places including El Paso. Wonder what they find and see versus what the President did this weekend. He saw no illegal crosses, a clean El Paso and a firm border wall. Let’s see what the senators see today.
This from The Committee To Unleash Prosperity. For the year the CPI finished above 7%, which translated into the biggest annual rise in prices in some four decades. With wages only up 5%, this meant that family incomes fell by more than $4,000 in purchasing power.
I think we all recognized this every time we shop, yet we reelected the same people for the most part? Why? Was the abortion issue really more important than anything else?
