The old saw that nothing is certain except death and taxes should be rewritten now that the U.S. House of Representatives voted to rescind $80 billion in new funding for the Internal Revenue Service that had been part of the Biden Administration’s Inflation Reduction Act.

The party-line vote likely will do nothing but produce a jackpot of sloganeering for campaigns in the 2024 general election given that Democrats still hold the reins in the U.S. Senate.
