U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) today refuted President Biden’s claim that their reckless tax-and-spending spree will cost $0, citing last week’s nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score that showed the massive package will increase the debt by $3 trillion over ten years.

Ernst said the plan is full of budget tricks and gimmicks—including a proposal to weaponize the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to snoop in Iowans’ bank accounts—which will punish hardworking families and small businesses who are already struggling under President Biden’s economy.

Earlier this year, Ernst helped introduce the Prohibiting IRS Financial Surveillance Act, a measure prohibiting the IRS from implementing any form of the Biden administration’s aggressive, invasive bank surveillance regime.
