Why are you not mentioning that Donald Trump said the following: "I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great great wall on our southern border and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall." Why is it now our responsibility to pay for it? Why is this being overlooked?

Wade Julstrom-Agoyo Actually, Ben is very free trade. So, while I'll have to double check the new trade deal, I'm pretty sure it DIDN'T have a net effect of decreasing tariffs. So it will have a net DECREASE in profit, even if we make Mexico share in our economic decrease caused by taxes on foreign tea, err, I mean avocados.

Jeremiah Harper Because no one in their right mind believed it would actually be Mexico that paid for it. Personally, I'm a skeptic on a cost/benefit side of the wall. But I'll acknowledge that this is something that financial experts know more about, and it's not the philosophical argument that I have a problem with (Open Borders are Stupid -> we need laws preventing effectively open borders -> rule of law requires the enforcement of our laws). I'm just meh about trusting Congress with the spending of money.
