The Democrats and members of the left-wing media have waged war on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for the past two years.
But DeSantis is not one to shy away from a fight.
And Ron DeSantis just exposed how Joe Biden and the Democrats are giving the “middle finger” to Americans.
Ron DeSantis has been a thorn in the side of the Biden administration since he rejected Fauci’s lockdowns, mandates, and restrictions during the pandemic.
Even though the Democrats, the Biden administration, and the left-wing media viciously attacked him every step of the way, Ron DeSantis never budged once from his pro-freedom policies.
DeSantis’ battle against the Left didn’t end with the pandemic.
DeSantis also took on the Left’s woke agenda in the Sunshine State by standing up for parental rights, which is something no Republican up until then had been willing to do.
Of course, just like during the pandemic, the entire Left attacked DeSantis every step of the way in his fight for parental rights.
Once again, DeSantis refused to budge and ended up winning a massive victory against the woke Left.
DeSantis is also willing to speak out against the Biden administration’s big government agenda.
Democrats recently rammed the $700 billion so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” through Congress, which includes $80 billion to hire 87,000 new IRS agents.
Before Joe Biden signed the bill into law, Ron DeSantis warned Americans that “the Regime is getting 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries.”
But in a statement on Tuesday, IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig refuted DeSantis’ warning, claiming that the new resources would simply allow the agency to provide additional services to taxpayers.
“The IRS has struggled for many years with insufficient resources to fulfill our important mission,” Rettig said. “During the next 10 years, these funds will help us in many areas, including adding critical resources to not just close the tax gap but meaningfully improve taxpayer service and technology.”
But with Joe Biden already weaponizing the Department of Justice and the FBI to go after his political opponents, most Republicans are expecting the administration to use the IRS in the same manner.
And Ron DeSantis is not buying what the IRS Commissioner is selling.
During a press conference on Wednesday, Ron DeSantis ripped Joe Biden and the Democrats for hiring 87,000 new IRS agents.
“Of all the things that have come out of Washington that have been outrageous, this has got to be pretty close to the top,” DeSantis began. “I think it was basically just the middle finger to the American public, that this is what they think of you,” he continued.
DeSantis said he expects this to crush small businesses across America and also warned Americans that Joe Biden and the Democrats were planning to use these new IRS agents to harass and intimidate anyone who “the government doesn’t like.”
“They are going to go after independent contractors, they’re going to go out there after small business people, they’re going to go after someone that may be driving an Uber or a handyman or all these things,” DeSantis said.
“Why would they do that?” he continued, before adding “because you’re not going to be able to contend with the audit, so they’re going to crush a lot of people by doing that.”
He also ripped the Democrats for beefing up the IRS instead of using those funds to help Border Patrol agents secure the border.
“They’re not putting very much might at the border, I can tell you that right now,” DeSantis said.
