Letter: Enough fencing
The Republicans, who haven’t accepted that they are now a minority party in the United States, are still acting as though they have a mandate to run the country. Witness their recent demand for $30 billion yes, that’s billion – to build a barrier across the border with Mexico.
For years they have preached against government spending, as if it was only their money. Now, with illegal border crossings at an all-time low, the Tea Party wants to ignore all the roads and bridges that need attention, and build a fence.
