House vote to deny IRS hiring 87K new agents causes internet uproar: 'Which side are you on?


Twitter users reacted strongly to the new Republican-majority House passing a bill to curb the proposed 87,000 personnel increase at the IRS.

Fox News Digital reported Monday that Congress voted to "rescind more than $70 billion in funding to the Internal Revenue Service," a fulfillment of "newly elected House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's promise to prevent the agency from hiring tens of thousands of new agents."

Titled the "Family and Small Business and Taxpayer Protection Act," the bill passed the House of Representatives with 221 members for it, and 210 against it.
