This CNN headline from a few days ago caught our attention and is deeply troubling:
The Army is projecting it likely will fall short of its recruiting goal by as many as 40,000 Troops over two years
So what is Biden going to do about that? Hire 75,000 new IRS agents. Here’s a headline yesterday from Bloomberg:
Biden Poised to Get Win on $80 Billion IRS Funding in Reconciliation Package
So while Biden is spending $80 billion to double the number of IRS agents and auditors, the Army is falling far short of its recruitment goals for our national security.
Meanwhile, the Border Patrol is running short of agents in Arizona and Texas. The border is so porous these days that even mayors of sanctuary cities are starting to complain about illegal immigration.
Yet the cost of the entire Border Security at Homeland Security is estimated at about $55 billion a year which is LESS than the entire INCREASE in IRS funding to harass American citizens.
Talk about warped priorities.
