How many taxpayers will it take to fund just the salaries of these new 16,000 IRS agents?
According to Yahoo, the base salary for new agents is $29,700, which would equate to about $475,200,000. How much did you pay last year and do the figures based on that. I know using my numbers, it would take a hell of a lot people like me to cover these additional expenses, not to mention the added benefits afforded government workers.
The point of this is for every government job created, it is going to take a lot of wage earners just to support each job and we are running out of those fast.
