Inexpensive yet costly,
Even if you can purchase something at a cheap price, you still may pay a huge cost for it. A good example would be illegal labor from Mexico. Some Americans see it as a good thing to have Mexicans work for cheap wages to build houses. They reason that since the Mexicans work for small wages, the houses will cost less. As far as price goes that may be true. But cost includes more than prices; in this case it includes longer waiting lines in doctors offices, higher taxes to supply health care to illegals, and any crime that illegals may bring here with them. That's an expensive cheap house.
