There's no chance they will ever be able to get this through. They'd have to be willing to die on that hill and I'm almost certain they aren't.


Now what's the next step in your master plan?
Yeah lets not fix the water supply in Flint Michigan or attempt to redo our seriously out of date electrical grid. No lets build a wall
I can only hope this hurts them in 2018. BIGLY. Especially since they keep throwing out a figure of 11 - 15 Billion when experts have almost DOUBLED that. And that's just for the CONSTRUCTION, and not Year over year costs.

Fiscally conservative


Please do not let me serve on a jury. I am actually a crazy person.
On one hand, that's a hell of an infrastructure project, and about the only way the GOP was going to do public works. Also, Dems will get to campaign on Tear down the wall

On the other hand, What the fuck.
meanwhile america's roads, bridges, electrical/water systems/etc. lay crumbling. CLEARLY building a wall is the upmost of importance, especially in a day where illegal immigration from Mexico is at the lowest it has been in a long, long time.

Get some NY/NJ contractors working this thing and they won't even break ground before his second term is up.

Oh I don't know about "no" chance. I think it'll pass easily enough. The problem is that he said Mexico was going to pay for it.
The GOP majority isn't THAT huge and there are almost certainly enough that oppose wasting $15b on Donald Trump's vanity projects that they won't have the votes.

If they really wanted to push this through, this would have to be a hill they'd be willing to die on. I don't see that.

Even assuming, for the sake of argument, that they passed a spending bill on it, the chance they'd actually break ground on building such a thing within the next 10 years is extremely low - it would get bogged down in lawsuits, Trump being impeached, etc.
2010 - Democrats and a black dude in power? Fiscal conservatism! Raising the debt ceiling will bankrupt America!

2017 - Republicans and a white (orange) dude in power? Carte blanche.
Can't there be like a referendum for people to vote on whether their money goes on a wall? Although given how recent referendums have gone, maybe that's a bad idea. "We won Mexwall, get over it" would appear in minutes.
