Everyday Americans are tasked with filtering out Joe Biden’s soft-spoken lies because the presumptive next president plans to send your tax dollars to sanctuary cities that subsidize the lifestyles of illegal immigrants.
“You know there’s an urgent need to fund state and cities. So, the frontline workers on those jobs can stay on those jobs,” Biden reportedly said. “There’s a reason why all the states and localities have to have a balanced budget, but we’re allowed, federally, to run a deficit in order to deal with crisis and emergencies, as we have in the past.”
The Democrat is playing a type of shell game with the truth. Those “frontline workers” never left their jobs. It’s been the private sector and working families that have suffered most from the economic disruption.
President Donald Trump delivered blunt truth about his policies and intentions. His administration insisted that small businesses and unemployed Americans get supplementary funds.
The cities and states that Biden is actually referring to include the likes of San Francisco, New York City, and Democrat-run states. They have doled out billions in taxpayer revenue to provide criminal nationals with free health care, housing, and food stamps. A reported 63 percent of non-citizen households are on the taxpayer’s dime and that puts a tremendous financial strain on Sanctuary City budgets.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been pushing a so-called relief package that delivers upwards of $436 billion in direct aid to cities and states. But the worst budget deficits at the city and state level typically involve Democrat-run regions. Under left-wing zealot Mayor Bill De Blasio, New York City faces a reported $59 billion revenue shortfall. Likeminded San Francisco faces a $1.5 billion over the next two years. What these Sanctuary Cities have in common is the lure of free money and safe haven for illegals.
As mind-boggling as this fiscal irresponsibility may appear, Biden plans to further subsidize bad money management. He has already gone on the record insisting the non-citizens be included in the Census. Counting non-citizens would effectively provide increased federal funding to cities and states that have repeatedly broken the law by protecting criminal aliens. His financial play also mirrors that of the Obama administration that bailed out big corporations and gave discretion to Blue state governors on how to distribute federal relief funds during the last recession. Needless to say, it went to liberal cronies and not working families who lost their jobs and, sometimes, their homes.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made it abundantly clear that Republicans will reject another “Blue State bailout.”
“I think this whole business of additional assistance for state and local governments needs to be thoroughly evaluated,” McConnell reportedly said. “There’s not going to be any desire on the Republican side to bail out state pensions by borrowing money from future generations.”
Democrat-run states have squandered money and routinely raise taxes to provide perks to illegals while defunding police departments. Including the 11 to 20 million illegal immigrants in the Census would substantially and unnecessarily increase their slice of the federal pie.
Under Biden’s plan, working Americans would bail out sanctuary cities, fund the lifestyles of illegal immigrants, and have your children pay the interest on a deepening national debt.
