Brawl over bookkeeping in NYC anti-terror funds

Yes the White House cut NYC's funding for anti-terror measures but the lost money was then distributed through different channels. In fact, NYC ended up with a 24% increase in funding over what they received from the Bush administration. They racked up some $245 million in grants, which apparently represents about 1/3 of the total grants distributed.

Not that will stop the usual gasbags from wailing about the cuts without noting the overall gains. It's no wonder our electorate is so uninformed. It's a full time job to keep track of the spin and the lies. Most people don't have the temperment or the time for it.
