Dipwad Dave-led Dems Delete Border Fence in Spending

Chairman/Comrade Dave Obey (D-Anarchy) "fixed" GWB with his new budget, alright.

Congress last night passed a giant new spending bill that undermines current plans for a U.S.-Mexico border fence, allowing the Homeland Security Department to build a single-tier barrier rather than the two-tier version that has worked in California.

...The 2006 Secure Fence Act specifically called for "two layers of reinforced fencing" and listed five specific sections of border where it should be installed. The new spending bill removes the two-tier requirement and the list of locations

Nice move, Dave. You just handed the Big Stick to the Republicans for the next elections.

C'mon. You know as well as I do that fence was never going to be funded. It was a feel-good sop. I'll bet that single span never goes up. No matter who wins in '08
