More money for the Border Wall? Tell 'em "NO."
You'll never guess what happened! My blogger friend Steev at Project Steev reports that the DHS ran out of border wall money! They are asking Congress for $400 million more so they can finish it this year! Without extra money, they'll have to stop building.
[Pausing here for chorus of moans and groans............Where are they?.........Silence...............(hollow echos of whistling winds)..............OK, I'll continue....]
"In the big scheme of our massive federal budget, this [$400 million] is chump change, and it seems likely that Congress will just reach in their pocket without thinking much about it - but in this election year maybe if enough people make a stink about it, it won't happen. Write your representative and senators today and tell them not to authorize this further insult to injury. Stop the wall!"
HOLY COW! We've got a chance. OK, People, have at it! (You know enough about that wall to call your local senator/rep's office. Go to it! Action reports are welcome in the comments section. And your comments, as always.)
