Think about it.... If Trump along with his republican congress had allocated federal money to the states for what Trump thought was important to fight covid and then those democrat controlled state governors took that money and used it for something other that was intended, well... Trump would be fuming. Republicans in congress would be fuming. And you can be damn sure that Trump along with his republican congress would devise a way forcing those democrat governors to use that allotted money for what it was intended, to fight covid and to help the citizens.Alabama lawmakers want to use pandemic relief funds to build prisons. Is this where they'll house all the unvaccinated?
Our republican governor took that Biden money, refused to help the unemployed and those facing home eviction, and instead she used that covid relief money to update state computer systems. She got caught, and was forced to refund that money back to what it was it was intended for... covid relief. So what is happening in Alabama is not unique. Many republican governors along with republican state legislators are trying to pull this same crap. What irritates me is that Joe Biden won't do anything about this. Biden could do something to stop this, and Donald Trump definitely would. Trump would probably sue those democrat states/governors and then block all federal funding to that state as punishment.
