Why Democrats oppose the Wall
2019 Jan 7, 8:28pm 660 views 0 comments
They want to destroy Trump’s credibility, especially with his base.
Nothing about this debate is about morality or cost.
It’s all about politics, folks.
The food is terrible and the portions are so small.
That’s what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) objection to the Trump wall reminds me of.
It’s immoral and so expensive!
Walls, in and of themselves, don’t offer moral judgements.
Trump has an unfortunate habit of working hard to keep his campaign promises and it drives official Washington crazy.
I have heard that he gets up every morning and buzzes his Health and Human Services (HHS) secretary, pounding him on the continued high cost of drug prices.
I assure you if the president were to adopt the Democratic position on prescription drugs, they would oppose him — well, just because you can’t have a Republican president doing something about high drug prices.
It’s all politics, folks.
For years, the Democrats have pushed to get trade deals that have more protections for labor unions and their members. The president is trying to do precisely that in the new North American Free Trade Agreement that his administration negotiated last year and by imposing tariffs on China.
Predictably, the Democrats now oppose what Trump is trying to achieve. They are all born-again free traders.
Of course, it is the wall that most animated the Trump campaign and it is the wall that must be stopped at all costs by the new Democratic majority.
I was watching the local news the other day, and they reported that the $5 billion dollars that the president has asked to pay for the wall would amount to about 40 bucks per taxpayer.
That’s the worse-case scenario for the Democrats: A Republican president who can point to a wall to prove he keeps his promises.
And that’s why Nancy Pelosi won’t give Donald Trump his wall. It’s not about morality or cost. It’s all about the politics.
