Once again, Democrats have stuck taxpayers with the bill.
See, while our current president is busy signing deals that SAVE the taxpayers money, the former administration didn’t care about taxpayers. The more we pay, the better.
As a bit of a refresher:
Know how the Barack Obama administration spent all those years resisting the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline through North Dakota, telling environmentalists that they didn’t have to worry – nobody would build and dig on Team Obama’s watch?
Well, liberals everywhere backed him up. They pounced BIG time and now they’ve left such a colossal mess behind, somebody is going to have to clean it up. Who is that “someone?”
Oh, it’s YOU, John Q. Taxpayer. Who else do Democrats turn to when they need money?
Not long after a judge told the pipeline protesters to get the hell out, the state had to assess the damage, and that damage has amounted to a cool million.
“The U.S. Army Corps will spend more than $1 million to clean up the mess left behind by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and others opposed to the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota,” Breitbart reported.
“The protesters, who succeeded in temporarily shutting down pipeline construction under orders from President Barack Obama, were evicted after President Donald Trump put the pipeline project back online.”
You know, it comes to mind that if the tea party protesters left such messes after their rallies and public gatherings, the mainstream media, not to mention the left, would go absolutely bonkers.
You think taxpayers would be shelling out money for trash cleanup then? Yeah, right.
Likely, the police would be called to the scene by some left-leaning politicos professing anger over the environmental damage, and the tea party protesters would be cuffed and detained, likely arrested and jailed.
And guess who would clean?
The tea partiers. That would be their court-ordered community service.
What a difference time makes; really, what a difference the media make when a Republican is in the White House. I don’t know about you, but I prefer stories about how our leader saves the American people money.
Those really make my day, you know?
