It's music to Trump's ears. Trump is a blue collar builder. Building is what he does best. The wall will be Trump's legacy. Once built, it remains for thousands of years. In the future, as technology progresses, it can be transformed into a wall of laser probably, but it will still be a wall. Mexico only has 3 F-5 jets because their government is corrupt. Mexico will be poor compared to the US for the foreseeable future. Mexico is plagued by drug gangs. The US needs a wall along Mexico to stop drugs.

In total, the bill allocates $13.8 billion to customs and border protection. That includes the $1.6 billion for the wall, $100 million to hire 500 more Border Patrol agents, $131 million for new border technology, $106 million for aircraft and sensors and $109 million for "non-intrusive inspection equipment." It also adds $619.7 million to Immigration and Customs Enforcement over current levels, bringing total funding for ICE to $7 billion.

They said they can divert billions from planned parenthood and food stamps to pay for the wall.

Imagine how many people wouldn't be dying on the street from all the Mexican heroin plaguing our society.

FFS....

Healthcare is a want, not a need. The wall is for safety. Safety is important in Maslow's triangle.

If people are going to be allowed to get sick and die, who needs safety.

If you build the wall, it won't be wasted on illegal immigrants like Obama has been doing.

Well, Big Pharma gets their poppy from Afghanistan.

Mexico cultivates their own poppy, and synthesizes Fentanyl with ingredients ordered from China, then mix the two together to distribute on the streets of America.

The real issue is the medical/insurance industries becoming a huge money making system with health care a secondary part of it.

Hillary Clinton spent over 1 Billion dollars for her presidential run. Where is the outrage over that? Not just picking on that skank, but all in all, what does it cost to run for Congress?

Take the money out of politics and the whole house of cards will fall.

A nation without borders is fluster cluck. Take a look at the EU!

We should build a wall around every state.

See, people come in from other states and use the services paid for by the local taxpayers.

If you don't pay taxes here, don't drive on our roads, use our parks, travel on our government subsidized buses, etc..stay in your own state, or pay a visitors fee when crossing the border into our state.

The Wall will be far healthier for America. Imagine how many American lives will be saved, safety from illegal criminals, cartels, drugs that have ravaged our country. This will save a lot more lives than simply throwing money at the healthcare system.

Michael Montgomery, a consultant who helps developers estimate their projects' economic impact, says a building project on the scale of Trump’s speculative wall should create between 21,200 and 25,600 jobs for "at least the period of construction,” basing his estimate on the $12 billion to $15 billion budget mentioned by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

Those won’t necessarily be new jobs -- already-employed construction and manufacturing employees will inevitably take some of the work, he says

I wonder if any illegals will be used.

People die every day. You can't stop death. Everyone deserves safety. That's why there is police, firefighters, military.

What about people who get injured or sick? Just let them die because of no health care.

How is that different then being hurt in an attack or fire and not being helped by medicine?

Maybe hospitals can close and be turned into prisons.

I am amazed how dense folks are... when they believe that lack of MONEY is the problem with our health care system.

Lack of PRICING and FREE MARKET competition is what is killing our wallets with healthcare expenses.

Maybe @FijiMermaid would buy a car from a dealer who pushed papers towards them with no price... and when asked says "Oh... we haven't decided how much we are going to charge you for the car yet... just sign on the dotted line, and when we decide how much it's going to cost, we'll let you know what how much money you need to send us a month."

Why the f*** are we allowing that to go on with health care pricing? Americans are so dumbed down... they don't even question it any more!
