Greater Danger Means Less Pay 

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich recently wrote in a recent piece that when President Joe Biden and the Democrats proposed hiring 87,000 new Internal Revenue Service agents (but no new Border Patrol agents), it was a pretty good indication that they were more interested in policing Americans than stopping illegal immigration and securing the border.

He noted that the salary of the proposed IRS agents (they currently average $73,257 a year with benefits) attracted the attention of a friend of his who pointed out how little America pays individuals enlisted in the military. 

While military personnel sign up to risk their lives and defend our country, IRS agents sign up to audit the American people and find more money for politicians to spend.
