Every day we have more evidence that there’s no low the left won’t stoop to in order to destroy their opponents. At a an official event, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of police and firefighters that Republican policies will kill or wound them. Since it was an official event, it was on our dime.
According to White House Dossier, Biden said:
“You’re stuck in a God-awful mess, and so It doesn’t make sense to us that that would be happening at a time when the need for y’all actually would be increasing,” Biden said, adding that was why the administration pushed for added public safety spending in the first recovery act.
Biden referred to lawmakers who always vote against funding for local law enforcement. “At least they’re consistent,” he said, rapping those who stopped supporting the funding in tight fiscal times.
“They walked away because they didn’t like the way we were paying for it,” Biden said, referring to tax increases on the rich.
It gets worse.
Biden said it’s a question of public safety, but also of first responder safety.
“There’s one thing we know: the more cops on the street, the fewer cops get killed. The more firefighters responding to a fire, the fewer injuries to the firefighters, because you have each other’s backs,” Biden said.
Read the whole thing, there’s even more. Do people actually believe him?
I’m sure he didn’t mention how public employee unions have been bankrupting states, cities and towns all over the country, and that’s the real reason there are fewer public safety personnel. He can’t tell the truth, so he blatantly lies.
