Baltimore Wants to Charge American Taxpayers for the $20 Million in Riot Damages

The recent rioting and unrest in Baltimore will cost the city an estimated $20 million, officials said Tuesday.

The expenses — which go before the city's spending board for approval Wednesday — include overtime for police and firefighters, damage to city-owned property and repaying other jurisdictions for police and other assistance.

Henry J. Raymond, Baltimore's finance director, said the city can temporarily cover the costs from its rainy day fund while seeking reimbursement for up to 75 percent from Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"The city remains on strong financial footing," Raymond said. "Hopefully, with the FEMA reimbursement, it will reduce the financial stress that we're under. In terms of the city's overall revenue structure, we're on firm footing and we'll move forward."

Both Gov. Larry Hogan and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake have requested federal aid.

Hogan has asked President Barack Obama to issue a disaster declaration so the city and state can be reimbursed for some expenses, officials said. Rawlings-Blake, meanwhile, encouraged city-based businesses to apply for aid from the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Baltimore Development Corp.

Take it out of the idiot mayor's pocket.  She's the one who wanted to give them space to express themselves.

Hey how about the news papers that paid protesters to go to Baltimore and protest are they ones that burned the city down  ? you see if there is not enough going on the Left Wing Press will invent it ! the real Americans that work and pay unreasonable taxes never get the truth from any news out let except for Fox and thank God form them !

When did we all take them to raise?   They tore it up they can fix it

Exactly let the rioters repair it. or live among rubles for the rest of their life.

Charge it to Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.   She's the one who allocated a "space" for destruction, not Tax Payers.   She needs to take responsibility for HER own actions & pay up.

HOW ABOUT THE MORONS WHO BURNED IT DOWN PAY FOR IT LEAVE ME THE HELL OUT OF IT

THESE ELITIST A**WIPES ARE JUST LIKE ANTS WHERES THE RAID!!

NO NO let Baltimore Pay for the Mess they caused this is not a national crises it's a Local one . Baltimore all of Baltimore needs to clean their act up !.

Excellent idea. Let the taxpayers of Baltimore pay not only for the cleanup costs, but also for the businesses and homes damaged or destroyed. Why should the victims have to borrow money due to city officials' incompetence or connivance?

Maybe if the city's taxpayers have to bite the bullet they will realize that the electing Democrats in the city for about the last 50 years has come to this, lawlessness, anarchy, and destruction. They got what they deserved. Now let them pay for it.

Although he'll do it to incite more unrest, let's hope that Obama refuses declaring it a disaster area eligible for federal funds. Somewhere, sometime, and somehow there needs to be an accounting.

Rainy day fund ? You mean billions of stimulus fund Baltimore received. So why foot the bill to all tax payers? Put the blacks to work on cleaning their HOOD, the destruction they caused and make them get off of their lazy welfare asses. Whites didn't do the damage so why should we pay? WE DON'T HAVE TO !Baltimore received over $879 billion in stimulus money. Where is it? Don't tax me for their destruction, make them pay.

I agree, they burned it down, now LET THEM fix it. Of course that should ALSO include those that were shipped in for the riots! The ones who are now screaming for their pay checks for doing as asked by the government. That's $1250.00 a WEEK, for burning down a town!!   Who knew being an A**hole paid so well.?

Use some of the 1.8 BILLION Obama gave to that city in the United States, from his stimulus kitty no less and Obama has the nerve to make statements that America must invest in this type of area to prevent RIOTS-----I think not. IF 1.8 BILLION WON"T DO IT THEN WHAT WILL

HEY OBAMA .....HOW MANY JOBS DID THAT 1.8 BILLION CREATE---THE ANSWER WILL ANGER MOST AMERICANS MR. OBAMA! IT WILL EVEN ANGER THOSE YOU WERE PAYING OFF TO STAY QUIET LIKE THE MAYOR, CITY COUNCIL, COUNTY OFFICIALS WHO STOLE THE MONEY FOR THEM SELVES.

VIOLENT CRIME IS WORSE NOW SINCE THE GRAY DEATH SO WHO"S RIGHT YOU AND YOU MOUTH OR THE POLICE TRYING TO DO THEIR JOB?????

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
