Misplaced Passion ?


Feelings are intense about building the Trump Wall, and will remain that way.  But, keep the money in focus!

Our national debt is approaching $22 TRILLION.  If interest rates increase a mere one-quarter of one percent on that debt, it will cost us another $55 billion each year.

If we would shut down the government over the $5.7 billion one-time cost of Trump Wall, why does nobody care about increasing debt costs each and every year?

For $55 billion each year, we could build a wall across both the southern border and the northern border, with enough leftover to protect the east coast from sea-level rise.

Why is it more important to keep undocumented brown people out of America . . . than keeping our own grandchildren out of economic servitude?
