For a long time, vital government agencies have had far too much power.
These faceless bureaucrats hold great power over American citizens. They have incredible power to harass, bully, and suppress our rights.
Perhaps the worst has been the IRS. This agency—for a long time—could seize the assets of any small business. Without even charging them for a crime!
It’s what’s known as civil forfeiture, and it’s unfortunately not rare.
This form of overreach gave the government nearly a blank check to take money from whomever it wanted – as long as it “suspects” them of a crime.
Luckily Trump just decided to do something about it!
For the first time in nearly 20 years, Congress has reined in civil forfeiture, which lets the federal government permanently confiscate property without ever filing criminal charges. Following unanimous approval by Congress, President Donald Trump last week signed the Taxpayer First Act (H.R. 3151), an overhaul of the Internal Revenue Service
You hear that? That’s the sound of the swamp getting drained!
And its music to my conservative ears…
This new act, signed into law by President Trump prevents the IRS from taking money from a small business’ bank account.
It was named after two business owners who—in 2012—lost hundreds of thousands of dollars from the IRS.
These men committed no crimes. They were obeying the law. Yet the IRS could simply step in and take their money.
It took years in court just for these business owners to get what was rightfully theirs.
That kind of insane behavior by swamp-dwellers in our government is all too common. Power-hungry officials abuse the law to get what they want.
Americans had little power to stop them. Under previous administrations, nobody did anything to help.
Only now, thanks to Donald Trump, is the IRS getting put into place. No longer can they push around businesses—without cause.
The new law makes sure the IRS can only seize assets if the money came from an illegal source. That’s the point of civil forfeiture all along.
If a business is conducting illegal activity, seizing their funds can stop them in their tracks. It gives the government a chance to arrest and convince criminals—before they can get away.
President Trump just made sure the IRS would have the power to stop crooks, but not harass private citizens.
Please take a moment to spread the word and thank Trump for once again putting Americans first.
