It has been reported around the nation that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is going to be hiring a vast number of agents after the House votes on Friday to grant the agency 80 billion dollars in additional funds. 87,000 agents are expected to be hired following the passage of the bill in the House. Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) and other Florida politicians have aired their disgust regarding the assumed bill going through.

According to the Heritage Foundation, which showcases a screenshot of an IRS job listing that has since been edited due to backlash, the agency is expecting in its “Major Duties” that applicants are ready to “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”

This has prompted Florida officials like  Scott to notice that those who want to limit funding for public protection services also want to arm those who want to “crackdown on American families and small businesses.”

"Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary," lists the IRS job duties.

Why would the IRS feel the need to advertise the use of "deadly force" against American taxpayers?

“The same people that want to defund the police are adding 87,000 armed IRS agents to crack down on American families and small businesses. Democrats have made their radical priorities crystal clear,” stated Sen. Scott.

For those who are University of Florida fans or college football fans in general, you know how many people can fit into a stadium like the Gators’ stadium in Gainesville (worst city in Florida, Go ‘Noles). UF’s Ben Hill Griffen Stadium holds 88,548 people while the IRS plans to hire 87,000 new agents. Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) explained in a tweet this exact scenario.

“The Inflation Expansion Act funds 87,000 new IRS agents, only 1,500 fewer than the maximum capacity at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville," tweeted Rep. Cammack.

And finally, Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-FL) also included his take on the influx that the IRS budget will receive with the House’s approval.

“Unreal. Biden and his army of IRS agents are going to go HARD after those making under $200k. They’re targeting you and me. Like I always say, never listen to what Biden says. Watch what he does. No one is safe under Biden’s watch," stated Rep. Gimenez.
