Predictably so.

Smooth move, dumbass.

Last night, from the former newsreader:

Mark Alford @markalfordkc
Our Republican Party couldn’t be stronger and ready to take our country back. 🇺🇸

Tonight we voted to DEFUND Biden’s 87,000 IRS agents that were hired to attack working class families.
8:44 PM · Jan 9, 2023

Some of the responses:

Awesome, rich people cheat on their taxes, now we can too!

You are a disgusting liar, but so proud of it. [….]

Protecting the rich from paying taxes & hiking up the deficit. Great start Mark.

Congressional Budget Office estimated Monday that the legislation would reduce tax revenue to the tune of almost $186 billion. The net effect would be a 114 billion increase in deficits over the next decade. Another hall pass for the rich! The working class will continue to pay.

They were not hired to attack working class families. They were to be hired over the next ten years to ease the long waits and replace those who will retire or leave in the next ten years. Find out the facts and not maga lies before you vote. Another embarrassment for Missouri.

How does allowing for financial fraud benefit the country, Mark?

They consider that a feature, not a bug.

Will the House and Senate have the votes to override Biden’s veto? Otherwise, it’s just a show

It’s a bad show that closed on five opening nights.

Strong and ready? 15 votes to agree on speaker? You already lie like an elected.

I see you’re out there spreading misinformation to protect your big-money donors and you haven’t even been on the job for less than a week. What an embarrassment you are to those who actually like the United States. Let me guess, you also are pro-insurrection.

You know that’s just a bold faced lie. Is there a shred of decency among the whole lot of you?

No. This has been another edition of Short Answers to Simple Questions.

That’s funny!! I.R.S doesn’t go after honest, hard-working families. Damn Mark didn’t take long for you to put on snake oil.

The snake oil has always been there.

This just proves you’re going to be the Ron Burgundy of Congress. No original thoughts or ideas – just read what the GOP leaders hand you.

He’s had a lot of practice.

Protecting wealthy donors

How are they attacking working class families?

Come on Mark. You know that’s a lie. Only the rich, like yourself, would need to worry about more audits. Besides, if you’re doing nothing wrong what’s it matter? You used to be a better man.

Yeah take the country back for grumpy old white men. Just what we need more extremists in DC like you.

What about going after those millionaires and billionaires that don’t pay taxes ? And BTW. Do you pay taxes?

[….] you. You were a hack journalist now a MAGA traitor.


No agents were hired, Mark. Do y’all even understand what you are voting for or are you puppets?Approval was to fund hiring over 10 years to deal with waves of retirements. Good lord the invomoetency is real. You fit right in. Glad you fake moved into a new area to get elected.

The ridiculous hat is a nice touch, too.

Your political attack on the agency that enforces tax laws just shows that the GOP only cares about wealthy individuals and corporations. Some “Law and Order” politician you are!

Mark-how about a little reality check. The Republican Party is fractured and in disarray. Take our country back? From who? Mediocre broadcaster to mediocre politician. Gross.

Still, both pay well.


Squawk it out, you idiotic parrot.

You are an idiot. Highly disappointing to see a community figure like you be such a cult extremist who slings scare tactics. Anyone with a brain can derive the reason for the funding of additional staff and it’s not to target working class fams. Do better

“Do better” The probability appraoches zero.

They were hired to make the rich pay their fairshare dumbass

Yeah, nice try. Don’t be a dumbass, they were hired to restaff a gutted agency.

“Don’t be a dumbass” That ship sailed long ago.
