2:57 am
spending $80 billion on irs to enforce this terrible idea. it's just -- it needs to be stopped. jillian: if i could push a little more though, they obviously see some benefit to this if they wanting to do this. i think a lot of the people watching are having a hard time tom prelending where this idea even comes from. >> it shocked those of us across the country. i'm a member of the state financial officers foundation which is a group of free market limited government conservative state treasurers and auditors around the country. 24 sent a letter to the administration saying we absolutely oppose this there is no reason that the federal government needs to know every time an american citizen spends $600. there's no reason for it. todd: the lawyer in me say this is abridgement on freedoms we have as an american. this is attempt at controlling us. may question for you, john, is how logistically are you going to go from stopping joe biden from doing this in nebraska if it comes to pass? >> well, my obligation is to the people of nebraska and to the
2:58 am
account owners. we oversee over 200,000 accounts in the state of nebraska. so simply put, if the biden administration demands this information, i'm not going to provide it if they sue me, i'm going to take them all the way to the supreme court. i'm not doing this, period. jillian: why $600? >> and an arbitrary, d.c. sausage making. it's arbitrary and capricious. there is no reason for it they are trying to compromise something that can pass. they are trying to get this bill over the finish line. todd: do you think another states will follow suit to get biden to ultimately scrap this plan if they come on tv like you, john and say look, we ain't doing this? >> there's no question. there is a morning consult poll that shows almost 70% of american citizens are opposed to this terrible idea. my fellow treasurers and auditors are around the country understand just how disastrous of a policy this is. and i think once the american people know that this is in the bill, this can't be another obamacare that we have to pass
