I’m Not Sure Why It Costs Nearly $2 Billion

To build this

The Senate did an abrupt about-face yesterday, voting overwhelmingly to begin paying for 370 miles of fencing and 500 miles of vehicle barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border, just three weeks after voting against the same spending.
The amendment’s sponsor said senators were so embarrassed by that July 13 vote that most felt they had to reverse course and vote for it this time — especially after so many were on record in May voting to build the fence in the first place. The amendment, which provides nearly $2 billion for the project, passed 94-3, with 66 senators switching from “no” to “yes” votes since last month.

But it’s a start. I just hope that certain Senators from Boston were not able to slip in a provision awarding the contract to their Big Dig cronies…
Build it strong and high.

    So he was against the fence before he was for it – but how dare Israel build one!
