Joe Biden has handed his buddies in blue a massive win, only it was the wrong buddies in blue.
Biden has allocated $139 million to bolster local police forces.
This would be the same police forces that were gutted after Democrat mayors and city councils pulled funding.
It’s a Win-Loss
While I am happy these local police forces are getting some extra cash to rebuild their departments, this is not how it should have come.
First, the money these departments are getting comes from the overly wasteful $1.9 trillion COVID package passed in March.
I stated at the time that package was loaded with fluff, and Democrats are proving me right.
This is far from the first time this administration has reallocated funding that was originally tagged for COVID spending and it surely will not be the last.
Additionally, why are the American taxpayers once again being forced to bail out blue states for mismanagement?
Many of the police forces that will benefit from this defunding are in blue cities that did this to themselves.
Now they are understaffed, morale is low, and they have no funding to do anything about it.
Rather than local money going to support its police force, as it should be, now the entire country is being forced to pick up the tab.
This is a political stunt by Biden as well, as he is hoping to do something that will help flip his numbers on crime in this country.
It is a desperate measure where the American taxpayer is, once again, being asked to pick up the tab.
