It's so obvious! From an Epoch Times article by AZ Rep. Paul Gosar:

I am a proud co-sponsor of the Border Bonds for America Act of 2019, filed by Rep. Steve Palazzo (R-Miss.). If enacted, this bill would direct the Department of Treasury to issue up to $5 billion in bonds in a fiscal year. The proceeds will be placed in a trust fund for the construction and related infrastructure for the southwest border with Mexico. If this bill were signed into law, Americans could lend money to the federal government by buying wall bonds, just as we did in World War II for war bonds, and the money could be directed for use on the security wall.

I could go for that. It's not exactly Mexico paying for the wall... but we still need something regardless of who pays for it.

I actually like this idea. Build the wall if you want, just don’t use my money for it. Bonds are a great way to raise ca$h from people who’ll voluntarily fork it over for that. I fully support this idea.

you're paying for the wall as a taxpayer - who has to payback the bonds with interest....perhaps a gofundme.com by Trump to pay for his wall that he said Mexico would pay for but now the DoD is paying for it (via American Taxpayer funds).

Reparations seem to be the "deal of the day". I expect a dem candidate say we need to pay reparations to Mexicans for CA, the SW and right through Texas.

The rich will pay for it.

Your welcome Bernie.

Still a better deal. After inflation, thatíll cost less than appropriating the funds directly from the federal budget.

While you may not be paying for it, actual taxpayers in the US will be. This doesn't magically shift the cost away from taxpayers.

I overstated a bit. No, itís not magical at all, but again, it creates a better deal since the paltry rates on a bond lessen the real cost to pay back once inflation is factored in. Iím willing to compromise over something like this.
