'Defund the police' is just another way for the Left to push its usual agenda

Editors, Washington Examiner

The “defund the police” movement is using the same left-wing tactic often deployed at the federal level, where liberals claim, falsely, that the government is neglecting social spending because of the military budget. In reality, the federal gov. spent $2.6 trillion in 2019 on Social Security, healthcare programs, and income support programs — more than three and a half times the $719 billion spent on national defense. Liberals are ready to argue that the only way to really show you care about racism and police reform is to support the full domestic agenda they've been flogging ineffectually for years.
