It's not creating jobs ... it's funding programs. There's a difference.


How are you able yo determine that providing financial assistance yo these places won't enable them to hire more employees for what might already be an understaffed office?

It seems like the right is bitching just for the sake of bitching

Tell me they're going to spend $335 million to hire people .... don't think so.

Also, read the bill ... it doesn't talk about hiring people.

Not the question at all ... there will be other opportunities to address such issues. It does not belong in this bill.

How is something "buried on page 147" of a 600+ page document? And how is that not being transparent, when it's typed in plain wording?
