Democrat controlled New York State has just decided to cut funds to the Special Olympics. The games—which feature athletes with special needs—will be getting much less money from the state to host their events. Right after this news came out, another tid bit of information was revealed.
Guess what Democrats are doing with the money?
New York was once one of the most respected states in country. After all, its home to New York City, one of the biggest and most important cities in the world. For over two decades, the city and state enjoyed strong, uncompromising, conservative leadership. Men like Giuliani and Bloomberg were fiscally responsible, while helping strengthen the region after disasters (Sept 11 and the Superstorm Sandy, respectively).
My, how things have changed. After only a few short years of Democratic leadership, New York City and state are a laughing stock. The city itself is crushing its citizens with burdensome taxes. Many are fleeing the region because of skyrocketing costs of living.
Democrats have burned through any surplus left over by Bloomberg. They continue to raise taxes and punish anyone foolish enough to stick around. They compete with San Francisco as being one of the most expensive regions in the country.
Crime is on the rise, after Democrats got rid of the controversial “stop and frisk” policy. Sure, it had its critics, but it stopped countless muggings, beatings, and rapes. New York’s leaders are doing nothing to stop the rising price of homes and apartments. Hard-working New Yorkers have to sit by and watch their rents go through the roof.
Meanwhile, property taxes for homes are so egregious, families who lived in the city for decades are forced to leave.
But that’s okay, New York Democrats are finding ways to save money. Like cutting the amount they send to the Special Olympics! Instead of cutting funds to other projects, like wasteful government agencies, they are cutting funds to a group that helps athletes with special needs achieve their dreams.
Oh, but I guess they aren’t really cutting funds. Because all that money they saved will be going to PAY RAISES FOR New York lawmakers.
Yep, you can’t make this stuff up.
Democrat-controlled New York is cutting funds to the Special Olympics and giving a raise to lawmakers a week after Democrats in Washington, D.C., expressed outrage after the Trump administration proposed cutting funds to the Special Olympics.
“New York’s budget for the Special Olympics decreased from $200,000 in 2018 to $150,000 for this year,” The Daily Caller reported. “Meanwhile, every one of the state’s 213 lawmakers will ultimately receive a raise that is almost the same amount cut from the games for disabled athletes.” [Source: Daily Wire]
How corrupt can Democrats get, when they take money from special needs people to give it to themselves?
It would be one thing to cut back on these funds, in order to give the money to public schools. Or fire departments. Or to the elderly. But to themselves!?
Did they think no one would notice? Are Democrats so blinded by their own greed that they didn’t think Americans would care?
At the same time, Democrats tried to bash Trump for just thinking about cutting some funds to the Special Olympics. Something he decided not to do because, you know, he’s a human being!
The Trump administration faced intense backlash last week after it decided to cut funding the Special Olympics, which led to President Donald Trump overruling the decision.
“I heard about it this morning,” Trump said on Thursday. “I have overridden my people. We’re funding the Special Olympics.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Guess who complained the loudest about Trump potentially cutting funds to Special Olympics? You guessed it, everyone’s least favorite court jester, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The same New York rep that screwed the state out of billions in the Amazon deal.
Is AOC going to roast her New York comrades for taking money from the Special Olympics to pad their paychecks? I doubt it.
This kind hypocrisy is rampant throughout the Democratic Party. They say one thing, but do another. And they don’t expect you to care. In fact, they flaunt it, knowing you won’t do anything about it.
Well I am. I’m going to make sure these clowns never win another election again. Will you?
