The law isn't outlawing domestic violence, because states already do this. It's a spending law that rains money on local government with strings attached so the feds can micromanage local law enforcement.

Where does that money end up? It either ends up paying salaries (of government employee union members) or it pays for construction of new facilities or it ends up going to outside domestic violence activist organizations for things like research, training, public education, outreach or counselling. I suspect that the majority, if not all, of the money is going toward the first and third categories which are dominated by democrat constituents.

If we were in an environment where we had so much money that we can't cut taxes enough to reduce the surpluses and we had to find a way to spend it, maybe you could make an argument that this particular type of spending was more valuable than a bridge to nowhere or a Congressional pay increase, but we are in a dramatically less attractive fiscal environment. This kind of spending is a great example of democrats putting politics ahead of fiscal responsibility as they always do. They're a cancer eating away at the health of our nation.
