69% Oppose Democrat's Plan to Have IRS Monitor Your Bank Transactions

More than two-thirds of voters are against Congressional Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's plans to give the Internal Revenue Service access to data on all bank transactions over $600 – and most also believe Democrats are lying when they say they’ll only raise taxes on the rich. 

That's what a new Rasmussen Reports National Telephone & Online Survey conducted October 13th-14th found:
 
  • 69% of Likely U.S. Voters are opposed to legislation requiring banks to report data to the IRS on transactions over $600,
    • including 55% who strongly oppose the measure.
  • Only 23% support the proposal, which is part of the so-called “Build Back Better” agenda Democrats are attempting to push through Congress.

Most Voters Agree – Parent School Protests Protected by 1st Amendment

In spite of President Joe Biden's Justice Department investigating alleged "threats" against Local School Board Officials, when it comes to providing input over the teaching of "Critical Race Theory" and requirements for masks or Vaccine Mandates, most voters agree the widespread parent protests occurring across the nation are “clearly protected by the 1st Amendment.”
 
  • 88% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is "Very Important for parents to be involved in their children’s education."
  • Another 10% say parental involvement is "Somewhat Important."
