Last month, President Obama warned us that if we didn’t help get the jobs bill passed, our chances of dying in a bridge collapse would rise. Today, Joe Biden upped the ante while in Flint, Michigan trying to resuscitate the same jobs bill the Senate voted down yesterday.

Transcript via Weekly Standard:

“In 2008, when Flint had 265 sworn officers on their police force, there were 35 murders and 91 rapes in this city,” Biden said. “In 2010, when Flint had only 144 police officers, the murder rate climbed to 65 and rapes–just to pick two categories–climbed to 229. In 2011, you now only have 125 shields. God only knows what the numbers will be this year for Flint if we don’t rectify it.”

If the jobs bill doesn’t ultimately pass and you really want to live on the edge, try driving across a bridge in Flint.

There are fewer police officers in Flint these days? Um, wasn’t one of Sheriff Biden’s selling points for the “Recovery and Reinvestment Act” that it would help hire more local police? Pluggers is unwittingly pointing out that economic “stimulus” as designed by this administration has had an opposite to the “as advertised” effect.
