(UnitedVoice.com) – The House has spent the last four years deliberately obstructing funding for a fence to protect the southern US border. Now, just weeks into President Biden’s administration, it’s suddenly demanding a pile of cash for another fence – to protect itself.
In January, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appointed retired Lt Gen Russel Honore to review security at the Capitol. Honore, whose military service was marked by several politically controversial statements, has now come back with his conclusions. The main one, ironically, is “Build the wall!”
And #Walls & FENCES WORK NOW !!

According to Honore, the Capitol needs a massive investment in security. Key points include extra security fencing, similar to the barrier President Trump built to keep foreign criminals out of the country, plus a thousand extra Capitol Police officers. The estimated cost is a massive $100 million – just to protect a few hundred politicians. Why is this considered good value, but a fence to protect 328 million Americans was a waste of money?
