Baltimore Got Over $1.8 Billion from Obama’s Stimulus Program

Contrary to what Barack Obama said about Republicans stifling investment in Baltimore, the Washington Free Beacon [1] found the city had received funding from Obama’s stimulus program:

“The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention.”

“President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray.”
