  Here is some more wonderful information on what the government is doing with your money and the waste of your time working to pay for stuff; most of which we can not do without like this fence...

 BTW: I have not been in favor of putting up this fence...  Fences really neither keep people in or out of countries...  There was the "Great Wall", the "Berlin Wall", and all sorts of walls in life; none of which ever kept anyone in or out for very long!

The only true thing that controls people is to change their hearts and minds; not physical barriers!   Read the article then maybe you will come to feel we do not really need or can afford most of the government expedites!!  HUH! 7, 2009 Taxpayers have paid $2.4 billion for fence construction, and annual funding has jumped from $6 million in 2002 to $843 million in 2008. Yet all signsactual costs are even higher. These contracts show average$4.5 million per mile for primary fencing and $1.6 million for vehicle barriers. And these

exacerbated by the use of private contractors.

owners and fighting lawsuits challenging the

Department of Homeland Security’s waiver of

nearly 40 environmental and regulatory laws.

Though CBP added $0.8 million per mile for land

acquisition costs in their most recent estimates, this

figure is likely low considering the more than 100

cases challenging the DHS awards currently before

the courts.

long-term environmental impacts when the government is exempted by legal waivers.

But the biggest future cost to taxpayers may be the

estimates for maintaining the 370 miles of “primary” fence range from $5 and $8 million per mile each

year. The Congressional Budget Office estimated annual maintenance costs at 15 percent of construction

costs. That means

estimates—probably low, as they do not address the increasing problem of fence vandalism—indicate

Though Congress has asked the Department of Homeland Security to provide realistic cost estimates,

DHS has dragged its feet, either leaving such estimates out of its reports or failing to submit the reports

altogether. Every dollar is precious in this economic climate, and a full and transparent accounting of

national security spending is vital for setting priorities.


Fence Costs Out of Bounds

Congress mandated the construction of hundreds of miles of fencing along our Southern border in 2006

without any real knowledge of its true costs.

indicate the fence is bound to cost us much more.

The only estimate of the fence’s cost in 2006 was a 1999 Army Corps of Engineers study which said the

most common type of pedestrian fencing would cost around $431,000 per mile. The U.S. Customs and

Border Patrol reports the fence already costs ten times that amount. In some locations, costs can run as

high as $12 million per mile.

Construction contracts, however, indicate
