Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s debauched, drug-friendly and globe-trotting son, can now say there’s some legislation named in his honor.
Two Republican lawmakers have introduced a bill to ban federal taxpayer dollars from funding crack pipes and other drug paraphernalia, a federal project that was recently reported and which is described in detail right in its grant documentation.
Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Dan Bishop of North Carolina told Fox News Digital that the Biden administration got caught “red-handed” trying to fund syringes and “smoking kits” as part of the $30 million grant program and that counter-legislation is needed to stop the “ridiculous” proposal.
The White House has, of course, denied the grant would fund crack pipes even though the grant language is clear.
“Congressman Bishop and I are standing up and saying, heck no,” Boebert said. “Our tax dollars should not be funding the death and destruction of crack addicts. Democrats are always putting the American taxpayer last and Republicans just want to give people in need a good job. Democrats want to give them crack pipes.”
So now there is the Halting the Use of Narcotics Through Effective Recovery – or HUNTER – Act. Hunter Biden has publicly struggled with drug addiction.
“I like the HUNTER Act,” Boebert said in an interview, “because it was a better acronym than Stop Paying to Subsidize Biden’s Son’s Drug Addiction act. That didn’t really flow. I think tax dollars have been on the hook for Hunter’s addictions long enough.”
Bishop also took aim at more progressive drug policies such as safe injection sites, needle trade-ins, and safe smoking kits. He said such programs try to “remove all stigma” from drug use, when “actually stigma is not a bad thing.”
The Washington Free Beacon first reported the crack-pipe program.
