Republicans in the House are set to vote on a bill would abolish the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and eliminate the national income tax. Georgia Republican Rep. Buddy Carter’s Fair Tax Act would replace the national income tax with a national consumption tax. The vote on the bill was made as part of the deal between House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and members of the House Freedom Caucus during his nomination process.

“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.

Carter continued:

“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,”

“The Fair Tax Act eliminates the tax code, replaces the income tax with a sales tax, and abolishes the abusive Internal Revenue Service. If enacted, this will invigorate the American taxpayer and help more Americans achieve the American Dream.”

The bill specifically gets rid of gets rid of the national personal and corporate income taxes and abolishes the IRS, which was on course to hire 87,000 new employees. It would also remove  death, gift and payroll taxes. The shows the defiant stance House Republicans are prepared to take against the Biden administration and their policies expanding the federal government.
