Sen. Bernie Sanders called out the president for lying to the American people and creating a false crisis at the border.
"Mr. President, we don’t need to create artificial crises. We have enough real ones. Let us end this shutdown and bring the American people together around an agenda that will improve life for all of our people."
"What if we instead added $5.7 billion in teacher pay? Or replacing water pipes? Or college tuition/prescription refill subsidies? Or green jobs?"
"And just like that, GOP discovers $5.7 billion for a wall," says the incoming congresswoman. "But notice how no one's asking the GOP how they're paying for it."
All this for a boondoggle project most Americans continue to oppose.
America may get its border wall. It just might have to do without a lot else.
