Democrat Senator Says The Border Wall Is A ‘Waste Of Money’

Senator Chris Coons of Delaware is saying the border wall would be a waste of money. That is rich coming from a member of the party that’s currently pushing Medicare for all, a plan which some have estimated would cost over thirty trillion dollars.

Democrat Chris Coons: Border Wall a ‘Waste of Money’

Sen. Chris Coons (D-CT) charged in a barrage of tweets on Thursday that he supports increased funding for border security, although he contended that a border wall amounts to a “waste of money.”

Sen. Coons said the partial government shutdown arose from the president’s rejection of multiple, bipartisan, options to fund the government and provide more border security funding. The Connecticut Democrat said that he has already voted for billions in increased border security; however, Coons charged that the border wall amounts to a “waste of money.”

“I’ve voted several times to invest billions of dollars in border security, and I am willing to support more funding for the border, but we’ve heard time and again from experts that the President’s idea for a single concrete wall is a waste of money and a bad idea,” Coons wrote.

Democrats don’t want the wall for one simple reason. It would work.
