Hillary Protests Cut in Grant
June 7th, 2006 by Mike

Washington, D.C. Associated Press

Senator Hillary Clinton and Rep. Pete King launched a protest over the government’s decision to cut anti-terror grant money to New York City by 40 percent this year.

They’re irate that as part of the funding cut, the Department of Homeland Security determined the city has no national monuments or icons.

They have been sending post-cards addressed to Homeland Security Secretay Michael Chertoff from places like the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. They’re posted on Clinton’s Web Site to encourage citizens to send cards, too.

Why don’t they just use the 4 billion dollars that are ripped off from New York’s Medicaid program every year?
