No consistency in defunding of laws

Success - Article sent! close

In 2006, President George W. Bush signed a "law" to build a double-layered fence on 700 miles of the U.S. border with Mexico. The Democrats didn't like it and defunded the "law" the next year. The news media were silent.

In 2010, President Barack Obama signed the ACA, or Obamacare, "law." The Republicans didn't like it and have moved to defund it. The president and the news media are outraged and are calling it "unprecedented."

Umm, hypocrisy much?
