For **** sakes...

I know that the right will exaggerate the new IRS data reporting requirements. In fact, Politifact is already debunking GOP claims about it.

However... the very idea, the notion of increased scrutiny of lower income Americans is unbelievable.

Want to scrutinize the single Mom who sells homemade candles at the Farmer's Market? Your dog walker? Maybe the student who makes logos on Fiverr?

We talk a lot about bringing Billionaires to heel and creating a more FAIR tax system and then we do shit like this...

I'm sorry... it's bad optics.

And bad optics lose elections.



Just want to park this here. They’re obviously realizing they have serious issues and there’s a lot to sort through in this thread, but I’m still not up to posting a lot yet.

Enjoy.

14. This scheme is so nuts, it almost sounds like some Republican strategist had it introduced

Maybe some Frank Luntz type noticed a flurry of posts about rich people, and said, "hey, the Democrats are calling anyone with enough money to open a bank account an evil billionaire! Lets sneak some clause into some bill that will make life so burdensome to most of them that they'll get furious and vote against their own people just for implementing it!"

They might even be right. I'd never vote for a Republican these days, but I'd certainly be tempted not to vote for any Democrat foolish enough to burden his or her constituents with such a silly law.

28. Doubtful

This is control freak stuff. Manchin and "Cinema" lean the other way.
Can't blame it on the republicans.  Can't even blame it on Manchin and Sinema.
Let's go Brandon!

24. Bizarre..

The real money is at the top, not in $600 transactions.

Do you think the elites are looking to turn on each other or monitor us?

FYSA: An AR-15, bottom range, costs a little over $600.

Another day.  Another case of the Left attempting to rationalize 81.5-million 'votes'.

Even when it’s evident that the Dems wish to have a policy in place to monitor and harass average citizens via their bank accounts (and that thread is full of primitives claiming this exact thing), these cult followers insist that it must be someone other than their beloved party leaders who hold these desires and they’ve been tricked into looking bad. Quite literally the Dem leaders could lock these fools inside a jail cell and push them into the ocean telling them it’s the best way to protect them from sharks in the water and these dolts would stand in line to be locked up.

Yeah, I read that whole thing over there yesterday.  There's another thread like it in LBN.  At first, many DUmmies were incredulous.  "$600?  No, you must mean $600,000!"  and "what repuke put that in there?"  It finally dawned on most of them that it's real and a real shit sandwich for them.

     DING DING DING. For all their bullshit about taxing the rich, they demand to pay nothing simply based on their politics. They don't want a more progressive tax scheme - they want to pay less because they're liberals.

     Well, DUmbasses, it's almost worth the government peering into my bank account (from which appropriate taxes are paid) if they also look into YOURS, so YOU can finally pay taxes on all the under-the-table shit you do.

     Welcome to the economy, assholes.
I am not a fan of Donald Trump, but I trust his advisors to steer this country in a more prosperous direction than the Dem monkeys pulling Biden's strings. Is that clear enough?

That $600 tipping point isn't individual transactions, but a total amount over time.  This would also get some of those illegal immigrants in the IRS sights.
