U.S. Senate Funds Fence After All

As part of the "get tough on the border" dog and pony show, the U.S. Senate passed legislation authorizing a fence to be built along 370 miles of our southern border that had been particulary porus. They passed the legislation about a month ago with full press conferences about how they were "getting tough on the border". Then, two weeks ago those same senate leaders quietly voted against funding the fence building project they had just voted for two weeks earlier. Get that? They vote for the idea of the fence, to get credit, then vote against funding it, so it would never actually happen. Almost every GOP leader in the senate participated in this underhanded act.

Fortunately, we live in the information age. The age of the internet. People found out about the trick and made their feelings known to their senators. This week, the Senate flipped again and they voted to fund the fence project they had approved earlier.

They need replacing, but until then, close watching.
