Dems Fail To Learn Their Lesson And Put More Americans In Danger

Last year we had chaos in the streets. Cities across America had BLM and Antifa tearing up cities all in an effort to defund the police. Sadly some leaders buckled under the pressure and put the welfare of their constituents on the backburner. But there were clear repercussions. Crime rates skyrocketed in these cities. Minneapolis had to beg neighboring areas for police as they had a record number of resignations after they cut the police budget. New York City has it so bad that NYC’s Mayor’s wife is asking the people to defend each other because of the lack of police. Yet Congress has not received the memo and they have just made matters worse by voting to further defund the police.

Democrats just voted to defund the police,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said in a statement. “The unfunded mandates in their bill, H.R. 1280, would cost police departments hundreds of millions of dollars—the equivalent of taking 3,000 cops or more off the streets. Our men and women in uniform deserve better.”

Jason Smith (R-MO), Ranking Member on the Budget Committee, and Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ranking Member on the Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to Congressional Budget Office Director Phillip Swagel highlighting their concerns with the bill.

“It is our understanding that H.R. 1280 contains provisions that significantly violate the current Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) threshold of $85 million,” the letter stated. “It is further our understanding that these provisions may in fact result in additional costs to state, local, and tribal governments totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars which would deprive these localities of the resources needed to provide adequate policing and public safety services in their communities.”

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) offered Democrats a way out late on Wednesday night — a chance to vote on an amendment that “recognizes and appreciates” those who serve in law enforcement and “condemns calls to ‘defund,’ ‘disband,’ ‘dismantle,’ or ‘abolish’ the police.”

219 Democrats voted against the amendment, which stopped it from being added.”

What are they thinking here? I know they are Dems but still, they are supposed to at least pretend to serve the people. This is just going to cause crime to get that much worse. We need to undo all of the defunding that went on last year. City leaders should have realized by now that defunding the police did nothing more than raise crime rates. But Dems never seem to learn and unfortunately, it is at the expense of the safety of Americans.
