Let me get this straight.

What is it that Bush objects to, paying people the going wage?

From Think Progress:

"Bush promises to veto homeland security bill.

Yesterday, the House passed a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security, despite President Bush’s veto threat. The White House objects to a provision that would require DHS contractors to “
pay their employees at least the local prevailing wage.” It also “funds the hiring of 3,000 new border patrol agents, rejects the cuts President Bush sought in the training and equipping of first responders, and improves aviation and port security.” June 16, 2007 6:10 pm "
