Democrats are playing defense on crime, and on Thursday President Biden sent in the political SWAT team in the form of more federal spending for police. Question: Has he chatted with George Soros and the soft-on-crime local district attorneys the billionaire has helped elect?
Mr. Biden previously proposed $37 billion for policing and crime prevention in his 2023 budget. That includes nearly $13 billion to hire and train some 100,000 officers. “We need to fund police who walk the beat, know the neighborhood, are accountable to those they are sworn to serve, and build community trust and safety,” says a fact sheet about the Biden plan.
