The prize for the best policy idea of the week goes to Steve Ahlenius, the president of the Chamber of Commerce in McAllen, Texas on the Mexican border. As reported in The Monitor, a local newspaper:
McAllen, Texas calls for a wall around Washington, D.C.
We feel the need to protect ourselves from bad legislation, bad ideas, and a waste of taxpayer money.
A wall around their homes and businesses will give the legislators and Washington bureaucrats a better understanding of what kind of message this action will send.
Let’s see if they decide to climb over it, tunnel under it, or walk around it.
