House GOP Makes MAJOR Move Toward Abolishing the IRS

They say that nothing is certain in this world except for death and taxes, but in the 21st century, we’re not so sure about that second part anymore.

That’s because the Republican-controlled House of Representatives is moving forward with an idea that has broad bipartisan appeal and could revamp the way Americans contribute to their already-bloated government.

Republicans in the House of Representatives will vote on a bill that would abolish the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), eliminate the national income tax and replace it with a national consumption tax.

Fox News Digital has learned that the House will be voting on Georgia Republican Rep. Buddy Carter’s reintroduced Fair Tax Act that aims to reel in the IRS and remove the national income tax, as well as other taxes, and replace them with a single consumption tax.

The vote on the bill was made as part of the deal between House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and members of the House Freedom Caucus and was pushed forward in his quest for the gavel last week.

Carter was incredibly excited about the moment.

“Cosponsoring this Georgia-made legislation was my first act as a Member of Congress and is, fittingly, the first bill I am introducing in the 118th Congress,” Carter said in a press release exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital.

“Instead of adding 87,000 new agents to weaponize the IRS against small business owners and middle America, this bill will eliminate the need for the department entirely by simplifying the tax code with provisions that work for the American people and encourage growth and innovation,” Carter continued.

Then, in a stark reminder of how far we’ve come as a nation:

“Armed, unelected bureaucrats should not have more power over your paycheck than you do,” he added.

Americans have long held a disdain for taxes in general, having formed this nation largely based on their anger over the way the British were exploiting them prior to the Declaration of Independence.
