Border fence hits wall, GAO investigators say   
     The government pays an average $7.5 million for each mile of fencing, nearly double the $4 million per mile figure the department originally estimated. Vehicle barriers cost an average $2.8 million per mile, up from $2 million. Members of the House Committee on Homeland Security criticized the department for the cost increase and construction delays.
    "I was in business for a long time, and it seems to me this is really off the page," said Rep. Bob Etheridge, D-N.C., of the mounting costs. [...]
    Congressional investigators testified they were concerned the department hadn't estimated how much the fence would cost to maintain.
    Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, told the committee he would refer to border security as "BS" when he addressed the subject.
    "I'm not sure if we've had a lot of BS, some BS or no BS at all, but we're clearly dealing with BS," Green said, prompting laughter from the audience. "At some point, we have to take a look at how much BS we can stand."
