President Joe Biden plans to shovel $80 billion into the Internal Revenue Service to hire 86,852 new agents, a Treasury Department report confirmed Thursday. 

This massive influx of IRS agents would lead to a surge in union dues paid to the left-wing National Treasury Employees Union, which collects dues from roughly 70,000 current IRS employees. 97 percent of the union's political spending goes to Democrats.

These contributions overwhelmingly benefit the Democrat Party: 

  • The left-wing NTEU represents 150,000 taxpayer-funded federal employees across 31 departments and agencies. Existing IRS employees comprise nearly half of NTEU’s total membership. 

  • NTEU’s dues range from $16 per pay period to $23 per pay period, and IRS agents are paid biweekly. If all 86,852 Biden IRS agents were forced to unionize, here is the breakdown of the windfall the NTEU stands to reap: 

    • If all new Biden agents were Grades 1-5: $33,351,168 in new dues per year

    • If all new Biden agents were Grades 6-10: $39,604,512 in new dues per year

    • If all new Biden agents were Grades 11-15: $47,942,304 in new dues per year

  • NTEU shovels 97 percent of its PAC money into Democrat campaign coffers. In the 2019-2020 campaign cycle, NTEU’s political action committee raised $838,288. Out of $609,000 in spending on federal candidates, an overwhelming 97.04 percent went to Democrats.

  • The massive influx in union dues generated by the Biden IRS agents will likely lead to a corresponding increase in NTEU PAC spending on Democrat candidates.

  • IRS employees regularly perform Democrat union work on the taxpayer dime. In fiscal year 2013, IRS employees spent over 500,000 hours on union activity, costing taxpayers $23.5 million in salary and benefits. To add insult to injury, the IRS had at least 40 out of 201 workers solely devoted to union activities that made $100,000. 

The $80 billion Biden IRS bailout is just another way to funnel taxpayer money to progressive candidates and causes.
