Re: “Immigration Dispute Leads Feds to Withhold $2 Million in Grants From Vermont Police

Vermont has been given whatever they want under the previous administration and it is going to things like marijuana bills and things that are ridiculous rather than making sure schools are safe and children are getting a REAL education, not wine about finds they are not getting because they dont want to show they are not following the rules!

Re: “Immigration Dispute Leads Feds to Withhold $2 Million in Grants From Vermont Police

I dont understand why it is so hard to follow the rules. We are expected as citizens to follow the rules and do what the state and federal government tells us, like not drinking and driving for example. The consequences for citizens is possibly losing our licenses. What is the difference? I completely understand they are 2 different things but the theory is exactly the same; if you cannot follow the rules then you cant reap the benefits. The Obama administration has everyone believe that it is an entitlement to receive funds, healthcare, etc that they now feel the federal government is doing a dis justice but not providing funds they are used to be getting whether they followed the rules or not. Granted opioids are a huge problem, but if states like Vermont would wake up and understand that these types of things are not entitlements and that you have to have documentation to prove you are doing what you said you would things would be so much different. The entitlement era needs to end! The state of Vermont has a surplus of money, according to past articles made in different local papers, and they were trying to figure out what to do with it in 2018. How about we put that money to good use rather than demanding more. How about we stop giving our state politicians in Montpelier free money for lunch and hotels for the time they are in session or giving them cars to drive around for personal use, how much money would that save? They dont do anything anyway, just speak to local people in Montpelier that can see it.
