Handouts?

God forbid the next attack happens, I wonder what they'll say then.

DC and NYC will never vote Republican anyway, so why bother buying their votes?

More money went to "blue" cities like LA and SF in the latest round. The gross political motive seems absent.

Let me guess..... complain?!?!?

It is a political lose-lose - if any attack actually occurs, it doesn't matter how much money you flooded into an area - it wasn't enough.

Yes well no amount of money will ultimately prevent an attack when people are determined to carry one out, but it can certainly go a long way toward the possibility of prevention and toward the security that is needed on a daily basis. How can anyone argue that cutting it doesn't hurt? I don't know the details of this cutting but that just seems like common sense to me.

do you think it was because they're much more likely to be attacked than Cheyenne, WY?

There is one pot of money and lots of hands reaching in. NYC and DC got big shares for previous disbursements. Now, money got shifted to California. Numerous municipalities make their claims for money.

I guess it is the entitlement mentality that gets me - as if any reduction from a prior grant level is deemed a cut.

Conservative Orange County also got the money cut. Of course, there really isn't much here.


Am I the only one who'd rather have all of this money going towards something else entirely?

I'm confused, I don't know why they cut NYC's funding since that's where the big attack took place.

This is idiocy.

NYC still got the largest share of the money.

That's not the point. NYC is of course going to get more money then Omaha, NE because it is so so much bigger.

The PROBLEM is they cut the funding by so much. There's your "idiocy." At least they could have given the same amount as last year, instead of sending us a big ole FU.

Why even it cut it at all!!????
