Excuses -- Excuses -- Excuses

Source: dailynews
WASHINGTON - A hotly disputed fence on the U.S.-Mexico border will cost more than $60 billion - nearly 10 times more than original estimates - with billions more needed for land acquisition and maintenance, according to a new government study.

While officials have estimated that the 850-mile fence will cost $7 billion to erect, the report notes that maintenance could cost as much as $70 million per mile over its 25-year life span and that miles of private property in Texas still must be purchased.
Let me translate this from "Beltway speak" into average American English...

"WE DON'T WANT TO BUILD IT AND YOU CAN'T MAKE US! NIENER--NEINER!"

The only time the government cares how much something costs is when they don't want to do the will of the people.
