(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – According to the survey, more than 4 in 10 Americans disagree with Congress’s decision to enact the $700 billion “Inflation Reduction Act.”

The bill, passed in August 2022, calls for hiring up to 87,000 extra IRS agents.

As previously reported, the enormous plan would spend billions on measures to combat climate change while doing little to nothing to lower inflation.

It would increase its size to the point where it would be larger than “the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined,” according to reports.

According to poll results, Republicans are more likely than independents and Democrats to oppose hiring thousands of new IRS officers, at a rate of 62 percent to 52 percent, respectively.

Fifty-six percent of respondents agreed with the Republican-led House’s decision to scrap money for additional IRS agents. Forty percent of them “strongly” concur.

Sixty-four percent of Republicans, 52 percent of Democrats, and 52 percent of independents support the GOP-led House’s action. The feeling is nonpartisan.

The survey has a +/- 3 percent margin of error. It was conducted between January 10 and 12, 2022, among 900 likely U.S. voters.

It occurred one week after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) hailed the action as the “very first act of the new Congress” by praising the vote to abolish the billions Democrats wanted to spend on enlarging the IRS:

McCarthy included that action among the achievements made by the GOP-led House in a relatively short period of time.

We’ve just been going for five days, and that’s only the beginning. We pledged our allegiance to America. That will remain, McCarthy declared:

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is working hard to keep his promises.

Should the IRS be defunded?
