Sen. John Thune: IRS agent is coming to a neighborhood near you

Senate Minority Whip John Thune reacted to the Democrats passing the Inflation Reduction Act through the Senate on "Special Report." SEN. JOHN THUNE: I think the takeaway from the passage of this bill is there is an IRS agent coming to a neighborhood near you. 87,000 new employees are at the IRS. Only 4% of them are going to be, you know, committed to helping improve taxpayer service. Most of them are going to be harassing middle-income taxpayers.

Supporting South Dakota agriculture – Senator John Thune

Whether it’s a natural disaster or an ordinary day, farmers and ranchers are always at the top of my mind. Agriculture is the lifeblood of the South Dakota economy, and I am committed to doing everything I can to ensure that our farmers and ranchers have the resources they need to help feed our country. I’m fortunate to be a longtime member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, which gives me an important platform from which to address the needs of South Dakota ag producers.

Senator John Thune – Bridging the digital divide in rural America

Rural communities across the country too often fall behind when it comes to getting access to the most efficient and effective broadband technology – technology that’s so common in urban areas that it’s often taken for granted by those who live there. By no fault of their own, rural communities are often overlooked. But that shouldn’t be the case. South Dakotans and other rural Americans shouldn’t be penalized for where they live or work. They deserve the same broadband access as their urban counterparts, which is why I have long focused on expanding rural broadband access and 5G services.
