Two Republicans Push ‘Border Bonds’ to Let Americans Finance a Wall

Representatives Steven Palazzo of Mississippi and Andy Harris of Maryland, both members of the House Appropriations Committee, introduced the Border Bonds for America Act of 2019 -- a law that would allow Americans to buy such securities from the U.S. The money would be put in a trust fund and used just to build a wall along the nearly 2,000 mile (3,200 kilometer) border.

Gavin Newsom’s inaugural address was a bit too long and somewhat disjointed, but he did make some cogent points, including this one: “Even in a booming economy, there is a disquieting sense that things are not as predictable as they once were, that we must now run faster just to stay in place. Stagnant wages. Costs that keep rising – rent, utilities, visiting the doctor – the basics are increasingly out of reach.  We face a gulf between the rich and everyone else – and it’s not just inequal...
