It may not be Mexico paying for the Wall as promised BUT is National Border security worth $120 to you?

Trump's wall could cost estimated $120 per US household

If U.S. taxpayers front the Trump administration's border wall, the average household could owe $120.

The U.S.-Mexico border barrier that President Donald Trump pushed forward with this week could cost a projected $15 billion, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. That bill would come out to $120 per household, based on the latest Census data of U.S. households, according to the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.
Trump has repeatedly said that Mexico will pay for the project, despite insistence to the contrary by Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. Without an alternative funding method, the bill could fall on taxpayers.
The White House on Thursday floated a 20 percent border tax as a possible method to pay for the wall. Still, that could also pass costs along to consumers, as some goods would become more expensive.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the plan could bring offsetting "dynamic" benefits. He said consumers are "paying for the flood of illegal immigration coming in and the cost to U.S. workers from that" and "increased costs to secure the border and border agents."

If they propose a tx to cover the costs of the illegal aliens in the country already, would that not spur some debate in the right direction?

120 bucks for this household? One time? I'm on board with that.

Sign me up. Illegal immigrant subsidies, ESL, and medical fraud have cost my family an astronomical amount of taxation over the years.

I would willingly cough up ten times the amount if the wall could be built in entirety in the next 18 months.

Less illegal immigrants means more money in my pocket in the long run.

* One of our team members knows what it cost her in medical fees and loss of income when severely injured by an illegal immigrant driving a gypsy cab.

* Ask me about the illegal immigrant who dropped a tree branch on our roof while trimming a tree next door. He was not bonded. We bore the cost.

Back when this country was in dire need for funding the war, the government issued war bonds. Consider the possibility of Wall Bonds instead of taxing for it.

Set up a 501c3 to raise money for it. All contributions go directly to contractors working for CBP.
