Today Americans for Tax Reform released a video compilation of on-the-street interviews from local news reports showing firm, categorical opposition to the concept of IRS snooping on their bank accounts. The Democrats’ new $10,000 threshold changes nothing.
Excerpts from the video:
“I don’t see what business it is of anyone’s what I spend out of my bank account.”
“No, it’s not their business. I already tell them enough.”
“I don’t feel that’s appropriate, that the IRS should be looking into people’s bank accounts.”
“They’re trying to get in to see every little thing you’re doing.”
“It could be a little invasive.”
“It’s kind of over the top and I just think that it’s an invasion of privacy.”
“Our bank accounts, you’d think would be somewhat private if you’re just a regular Joe Schmo making money week-to-week.”
“I do not think the government should be intervening in individual bank accounts.”
“It is personal information, that’s why we file taxes, too. You know, they should not have access to all that stuff.”
“I don’t think it’s right, it’s not their business what’s in my bank account.”
