First, the wall is unnecessary. Second, the wall will not be effective. Third, there is no emergency. But most importantly, we cannot afford to spend billions on something like this. Every dollar further into debt the country goes, there is a corresponding negative effect on both U.S. economic performance and unemployment. Those debt servicing payments are as much a yoke around the neck of this country as massive debt payments would be to an individual. And if those are not good enough reasons for Congress to override the president’s veto, then perhaps a good enough reason would be showing 272,000 disabled American children that keeping $17 million in the budget for education programs in Special Olympics is far more important to our government than using it to fund a tiny portion of a border wall that will go down in history as one of America’s more shameful monuments.
