House Republicans push using power of purse to defund Kamala Harris’ office, IRS

House Republicans are hoping to use the power of the purse to stall some of the Biden administration’s left-wing policies.

With the House set to take up Financial Services and General Government fiscal year 2024 appropriations, there have been several amendments put forth by GOP lawmakers to defund the left’s agenda that President Biden has for the most part given the green light to — FY 2023 funding for the Treasury and executive office of the president ended on Sept. 30 and Congress passed a short-term funding extension that ends on Nov. 17.

One such amendment was submitted by U.S. Rep. Mike Collins, R-Ga., and it seeks to halt funds toward Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, according to Fox News.

Multiple amendments that were offered targeted funding toward the White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention, while another by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., proposed reducing Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner Daniel Werfel’s salary to $1.

Two Offices of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (ODEIA) within the Biden administration are the subject of cost-cutting GOP proposals. An amendment proposed by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., specified defunding the Treasury’s ODEIA, and a similar amendment by Rep. Harriet Hageman, R-Wyo., hit the Office of Personnel Management.

An amendment submitted by freshman Rep. Russell Fry, R-S.C., would stop funding to the Treasury’s Climate Hub, an office responsible for helping the department form and coordinate its strategy around climate change.


With Democrats controlling the Senate, these amendments don’t stand much of a chance but then show bills are a specialty in Washington, D.C.

Suffice it to say, social media users are skeptical… here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on X:
