Top Democrats: Sequester Hurting Boston Bomb Victims

LINK

quote:

"We know that first-responders are being cut. We know that community police [are] being cut. We know that healthcare services, especially emergency healthcare services, are being cut," Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), head of the House Democratic Caucus, said Tuesday at a press briefing. "Why do we know that? Because we know the sequester ... demand[s] that we make these blind cuts across the board."



Becerra said the sequester — $85 billion in automatic spending cuts that launched in March — will likely leave Boston Mayor Thomas Menino (D) facing a budget crunch in the wake of Monday's tragedy.

quote:

"Chances are the mayor in Boston is now having to figure out how to cover for the extra costs involved in having so many people out there, for security, for emergency medical assistance," Becerra said. "He's probably now had to supplant money from some other part of his budget. Whether it's community police, whether it's a vaccine for kids provided through the city, they've got to pay for it."



Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.), vice chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Congress must ensure that security funds are not only available, but are allocated wisely.

quote:

"It's important for Congress to understand that monies that are sent for the purpose of homeland security need to be done on a judgment basis as to where the threat is highest," Crowley said. "A city like New York, Los Angeles, Boston — in this particular case, on Patriots' Day, on one of the most watched marathons in the world — the resources need to be there."



A lot of people called this yesterday. The left can't even wait a day to politicize a tragedy.

If they don't like it, guess they shouldn't have voted for it.

Does he mean resources like a bomb squad at the finish lines? Those kind of resources?

Arghh, I hate stupid people. It was a cut in growth. Spending actually went up, and they got a 97.6% bump of their expected increase...Facts suck for their agenda.

You knew there would be a rush to fit this into everyone's agenda: Half the TD board blamed Obama and and half blamed the Sequester, Iraqis, the IRA, Tax Dodgers, tea Partiers, Yankee fans, Saban, Gun control activists, pro gun people and the band played on.

I blame the Klan because they are mad that East Africans always win the Marathons. Just as dumb as anything else.

Somebody on this board (maybe the OT) asked on the day of the shooting how long it would be before the bombing was blamed on the sequester.

To that poster, well, here it is.

And i guess Obama shouldn't have proposed it.

The liberals are fricking stupid with this one. They are politicizing and demonizing the very thing they proposed and voted on, and are trying to blame it on the GOP. This shows the mental illness of the left.

I actually read where Obama cut local domestic issues related to the bombing by 45%. The media don't want to admit Obama not Bush is too blame.

Stupid populace and complicit media eliminate their need for truth.

They can now lie with impunity, and they know it. That's why Obamacare failures are now being set up for Republicans as well.

Everyone calm down. The Führer is headed to Boston for the memorial services.

Will he fire up the teleprompter and campaign?
