Here, this is fun:
Sit back and think of everything liberals claimed would never happen regarding Donald Trump. Obviously, the big one was that he would never be president…and that didn’t work out well.
Another would be the oft-argued Wall. That was never going to happen, either. And yet, it has already taken several gigantic steps toward reality.
Now, leftists have arrived at the horrible realization that President Trump, combined with a Republican Congress, are going to accomplish exactly that which Democrats mocked on the campaign trail.
In other words, the liberals’ worst nightmares are coming true.
Next to the possibility of his getting elected, the idea that a border wall funded by Mexico was something liberals treated with extreme derision. But shortly after the final plans were confirmed, leftists started to panic.
Now it’s REALLY time to panic:
The Washington Times:
“A group of House Republicans on Thursday introduced the first major bill to fund President Trump’s border wall, saying the government could collect billions of dollars by imposing a 2 percent fee on all the money Mexicans and other immigrants send back home.“
The funds from this are no small amount, either.
“Estimates vary, but remittances from those in the U.S. to their relatives back home could top $130 billion a year. A 2 percent tax could net more than $2 billion a year…“
STORY CONTINUES BELOW…
Two billion dollars a year will buy a lot of fence and concrete. One author of the bill explains:
“‘The bill is simple – anyone who sends their money to countries that benefit from our porous borders and illegal immigration should be responsible for providing some of the funds needed to complete the wall,’ Rep. Mike Rogers, Alabama Republican, said in a statement.
‘The bill keeps money in the American economy, and most importantly, it creates a funding stream to build the wall.'”
But if the Mexicans get too upset, we can just remind them that the enormous Mexican cement manufacturer, Cemex, wants to bid on the wall.
So they’ll still benefit from American money, only they’ll have to provide a product in return, one that will be part of the wall they claim to object to.
And the American left? They’ll just let Nancy Pelosi make a fool out of herself as she babbles incoherently in interviews…seriously, someone help that woman.
