GLENS FALLS, NY– Yesterday,Breitbart Newsreported that at a recent town hall Far Left Downstate Democrat from Poughkeepsie Matt Castelli “applauded” the creation of 87,000 IRS agents that will be used to target middle-class New Yorkers and small businesses, a measure that Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has vowed to overturn on day one of a Republican-controlled House.

FromBreitbart News:

“Democrat candidate MattCastelli, the opponent of Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), has applauded the creation of 87,000 new IRS agents, a measure Stefanik has pledged a Republican-controlled House would repeal.”

Castelli, a Democrat who failed to fully pay his 2022 Washington, DC, property taxes, is in favor of those earning less than $400,000 paying $20 billion more in taxes over the next decade through increased IRS auditing— an amount a CBO analysis estimated. The additional 87,000 IRS agents could cost taxpayers as much as $80 billion.”

Senior Advisor to Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, Alex DeGrasse, stated:

“The difference between Congresswoman Elise Stefanik and this Far Left Downstate Democrat from Poughkeepsie couldn’t be clearer. This Far Left Downstate Democrat from Poughkeepsie “applauds” the creation of 87,000 new IRS agents by Joe Biden and Lame Duck Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Make no mistake; these agents will be used to target hard-working New York families, small businesses and family farms to fund Biden and Pelosi’s radical Socialist agenda. On the other hand, Congresswoman Stefanik has pledged that she will repeal these agents on day ONE of a Republican-controlled House. A vote for this carpetbagger from Poughkeepsie is a vote for more taxes, more audits and less money in your pocket. A vote for Congresswoman Stefanik is a vote for lower taxes, more freedom and more money in your pocket.”
