Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Tuesday that he believes every lawmaker who voted to pass the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” should face mandatory annual audits by the IRS.

At an event in Fort Pierce, Florida, DeSantis claimed the tens of thousands of IRS employees added under the measure “are going to be mobilized to go after people that the government doesn't like.”

“So, that's not a good thing for an economy to be unleashing the IRS. And it's also the case the tax code isn't  - it's incomprehensible. So if they go after you, a lot of times they're going to be able to find something -  especially if you don't have an accountant or you don't have lawyers. So I thought it was really, really reprehensible that they'd be mobilizing 87,000 IRS agents. And I think every member of Congress that voted for that bill should be required to be audited every year by the IRS.”

Maybe it should be required, but it likely won’t happen to Nancy Pelosi and her ilk.
