I received “The Scoop” email from you this weekend highlighting your 2022 priorities, and watched your speech regarding the rise in violent crime. Let’s get real Senator, you won’t do anything in 2022 to hold anyone accountable. You’ll fire off a few strongly worded letters, maybe have a hearing or two and that’s it.
If you really cared about violent crime, why didn’t you take action in 2020? While businesses burned and livelihoods were lost you did nothing. All of a sudden in 2022 you think it’s important? C’mon Senator, even this simple Iowan knows you won’t do anything, too little too late. Not a single penny of Federal taxpayer money should go to bail out cities that allowed and supported the coordinated crime spree; they created and enabled it. But no, I’m sure you’ll cave in the name of supporting our police and send Federal dollars to your Democrat cronies.
You saying we need accountability and transparency at the Department of Defense and Justice Department is laughable. Didn’t you vote “yes” to confirm Biden’s Secretary of Defense and Attorney General? You won’t do anything to get accountability, nothing! Please prove me wrong.
Want to start somewhere for 2022? How about the failed withdrawal from Afghanistan that cost 13 precise American lives. How about the Afghan civilians that were murdered. How about the $85 BILLION in military gear we left for our enemies. How long until those true weapons of war make their way across our unsecured Southern border? Will there ever be accountability for this Senator?
Your words are hollow and have no meaning Senator Grassley, I demand action.
