Republicans Plan To Gut IRS And Ethics Office To Protect Themselves And Their Donors

The Republican party plans to gut IRS funding with their "Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act" in order to protect their donors and prevent the IRS from targeting the wealthy. They also plan to change the rules and weaken the independent body that investigates members of Congress, the Office of Congressional Ethics, by imposing term limits on its members and preventing it from hiring new staff for two years. These actions are expected to disproportionately benefit wealthy individuals and protect members of Congress who may have broken the law.
