Biden Comments On Budget

In yet another desperate attempt to deflect from Joe Biden’s disastrous policies, the White House is accusing House Republicans of trying to defund the police.

Yes, you read that right. The same Biden administration that has ignored the ongoing border crisis raised taxes on hardworking Americans, and created inflation like we haven’t seen in decades is now crying over potential cuts to police funding.

“Joe Biden won’t let Congressional Republicans defund the police, abolish law enforcement agencies like the FBI, gut crime prevention, or rollback landmark legislation critical to the fight against gun crime,” White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates told Fox News Digital.

But let’s call a spade a spade here. The proposed GOP budget for Fiscal Year 2025, aptly named “Fiscal Sanity to Save America,” is not about defunding the police. It’s about reining in the out-of-control spending the Biden administration has pushed for since day one.

If that means taking a closer look at programs like the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), which were created in the 1990s but have done little to reduce crime, then so be it.

But of course, the White House would rather spin the narrative to make it seem like Republicans are anti-police. It’s laughable to think that House Republicans would want to get rid of law enforcement agencies that have been crucial in keeping our communities safe.

But kudos to the RSC for calling out the White House’s hypocrisy. The COPS funding has seen a drastic increase under the Trump administration, while Democrat-led cities have been begging for bailouts after defunding their own police departments. It’s clear who the real defunders are.

“Conservatives versus Biden on crime – the record couldn’t be more different,” RSC Executive Director Joe Barry told Fox News Digital. “RSC’s budget doesn’t subsidize sanctuary cities or local entities who have embraced the defund the police movement.”

Let’s not forget that the Republicans’ budget proposal also includes funding for hiring 100,000 additional police officers, investing in community violence intervention and prevention programs, and boosting the resources of law enforcement agencies like the ATF. Meanwhile, Biden’s bloated budget would increase deficits by trillions and create the largest debt-to-GDP ratio in history.

But hey, at least the Biden administration is patting itself on the back for reducing crime rates after they skyrocketed during their predecessor’s term. Talk about setting the bar low.

So, let’s not fall for the White House’s fear-mongering tactics. This is not about defunding the police. It’s about cutting unnecessary spending and getting our country back on track. Something the Biden administration seems incapable of doing.
