NEW TV AD: Smiley Takes President Biden and Patty Murray to Task for funding a “Stadium” of IRS Agents


Veterans Advocate Calls out Washington’s Senior Senator for Her Vote to Tax the Middle Class to Bail Out the Elites


Pasco, WA – The Smiley for Washington campaign released its fifth TV ad of the general election today titled “Stadium.” In it, veterans advocate and U.S. Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley calls out President Biden and Patty Murray for funding 87,000 new IRS agents that will be used to shake down families making $75,000 or less to pay for the student loan forgiveness of doctors and lawyers.


Lumen Field, with a maximum capacity of 79,000, provides a powerful visual as it is unable to house all the new IRS tax agents that will be hired as part of Senator Murray’s Inflation Reduction Act.


This ad buy will again be in the high six figures with 1200 GRPs statewide. It will run from October 3rd through October 17th. Watch the new ad here:


“As the deciding vote for the Inflation Reduction Act, Patty Murray proved once again that she prefers to tax the lower and middle classes to bail out those at the top,” said Elisa Carlson, Communications Director for Smiley for Washington campaign. “She has a thirty year record of voting for tax cuts for the wealthy and against tax credits for hard working families. Through her Agenda for Economic Recovery and Reform, Tiffany Smiley will work to end the inflation, roll back the crushing taxes and return hope to Washington families.”



BACKGROUND: “Stadium” Ad By The Numbers


$80 Billion: That’s how much the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” – which Patty Murray voted for and Joe Biden signed into law – would increase funding for the IRS over the next 10 years.


87,000: According to a May 2021 Biden Treasury Department assessment, that’s how many new full-time employees the IRS would add using the $80 billion in extra funding.


710,000: That’s how many new audits will fall on taxpayers making $75,000 or less, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis and applying 2010 audit rates to recent tax filing data.


$124 Billion: That’s how much the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” will raise in new revenue from increased IRS tax enforcement from the new funding they receive above.


$400 Billion: That’s how much Joe Biden’s unfair student loan forgiveness policy will cost, a policy that Patty Murray supports.
