House Republicans On Debt Ceiling: Biden Calls House Gop “Fiscally Crazy” Days Before Debt Ceiling

House Republicans On Debt Ceiling: Three days before the federal government is anticipated to reach its borrowing limit, President Biden used a Monday event commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day to denounce House Republicans as “fiscally crazy” and push back against their plans to rein the IRS hiring.

Before the Jan. 19 debt-ceiling deadline, Biden put his own financial record in the most favourable light when speaking to guests of an event organised by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

“They’ll bring up big spending Democrats once more. What’s this? By $350 billion, I cut the deficit last year. Additionally, the federal deficit is down more than $1 trillion this year. That is a fact, hear me out,” Biden stated.

Over the next ten years, hundreds of billions will be cut, but so what? These guys are the most financially — I guess you could say financially insane. They’re not quite getting it,

The projected hiring of up to 87,000 extra IRS agents to help pay for a $437 billion spending measure for the environment and healthcare that was passed last year was also criticised by Biden in a House-passed bill.

“You know, the reason we have so many new IRS agents is because so many of the older ones were dismissed or are retiring. And what’s this? Who needs trustworthy people to tell them what they are or are not doing? The multi-multi-millionaires, the billionaires,” Biden remarked. “And the impartial Congressional Budget Office estimates that just this one plan will increase the deficit by $114 billion.”

Rich taxpayers frequently dodge IRS enforcement because officials are aware that they can challenge it in court. According to conservatives, Biden might personally owe up to $500,000 in Medicare taxes on his income between 2017 and 2018. In contrast, a friend of Hunter Biden paid the IRS over $2 million in back taxes on the first son’s foreign income last year in an effort to avoid being charged with a crime.

Republicans in the House have vowed to oppose raising the debt ceiling unless it is accompanied by spending cuts, but Democrats have so far refused to reach an agreement that a partial government shutdown may result.
