Congress & Duplicit y on the Border
It's amazing how congress can get a 2/3rds vote to override a veto on pork spending ($23Bn for nebulous "water projects"), but they just can't seem to muster the funds for border security, the most popular issue in America:
The border security funding provision had passed both the House and Senate by nearly unanimous margins, but was 'mysteriously' stripped out in joint committee. A nice trick, don't you think?
Sen. So-and-So: "Aw, golly-- I voted to get that border secured, but those darn [Democrats/Republicans] wouldn't support the appropriations bill!"
The guy quoted in the article as being upset that the provision was mysteriously removed was South Carolina's Lindsy Graham. Graham is the biggest apologist for illegals in the U.S. Senate next to John McCain. He was the one who pushed for amnesty by saying "we are going to tell the racists to shut up!" Now the little snake knows he is in trouble (he is up for election in 08) so he is posturing like he is for a secure border. Hey, Sen. Graham, you little phony, SHUT UP!
