Nuts! There is clearly room to compromise. Clearly. Trump has said he would come down and negotiate from 5.7 billion, but Nancy Pelosi said "NO" to any funding for any part of a wall/fence. Ridiculous! She AND Charly Schumer voted to build 400 miles in California under Bill Clinton, and 300 miles in Texas under GW Bush. They also voted for more in 2013 and 2018 and approved funding for the same to be built by Border Patrol, which has already built over 200 miles in Texas and elsewhere. BP is currently building another 100 miles in New Mexico just to the west of El Paso, Texas.
What's the difference in 5.7 and Nancy's 1.6 in "border security"? Not much more than her tossing on another 1 billion and agreeing to some steel slat wall fencing, which she's voted to build and has built before.
There's only one reason she is saying no, and one reason only. The #1 reason Trump voters wanted him was to build a wall. Trump's not even asking for a lot, as one billion in funding for wall/fence translates to about 200 miles.
The difference is a rounding error at the Pentagon. They spend that much at lunch time. It ain't the moon and back for lunch.
You're a hypocrite, Mish.
