KY Sen. Rand Paul will Shut Down Government before Agreeing to More Wasteful Spending

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has had enough of the government's willingness to sell away the future of our children and our grandchildren and is refusing to vote on an emergency plan to prevent the government shutdown until something changes in this country.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">As we look at this debate, my hope is that both sides will come together and say, &quot;Enough&#39;s enough. This is the time. Tonight I say no.&quot;</p>&mdash; Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) <a href="https://twitter.com/RandPaul/status/961753301611098112?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

Right now, every single child that a parent gives birth to is born into debt. Currently, that debt sits at around $63,000 per child.

A child, who's never even had a chance to breathe in oxygen from outside his mother's womb, owes the Federal Government money.

This is an absurd concept, and if that's not <i>child abuse</i>, then I have a hard time explaining what else you could label it as.

As Congressional lawmakers began the scramble to secure enough votes to keep the impending government shutdown from happening, Rand Paul raised his fist high to say "enough is enough".

The White House is already instructing Federal agencies to begin the process of preparation for a government shutdown as a result.

Rand Paul is demanding that there be a concession on the part of lawmakers to impose budget caps, although it appears as if none in the Senate are willing to agree to such a measure. Paul says that despite their refusal he will hold up a vote until after midnight, meaning that the government will have effectively shut down as cash to fund it has run out.

"There is probably a lot of blame to go around for the Republicans who are advocating for this debt," Senator Paul said. "But I would say, really, primarily, this is coming from Congress. Leadership in Congress in both the House and Senate has decided to move forward. But the funny thing is you know so often in the media we hear 'we want you to work together.' They are are working together but working together to spend a ton of money."

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) had hoped that the bill would pass, believing that only Democrats were opposed to it.

"Part of it depends on the Democrats. This is a bipartisan bill. It's going to need bipartisan support," the Wisconsin Republican said. "We are going to deliver our share of support. I feel very good about Republicans."

Ryan clearly is out of touch with the base of his party, which Rand Paul strongly represents. Continued wasteful spending, unnecessary financing of foreign aid and absurd social welfare programs are key problems in America.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) seems to have been caught off guard by the rallying cry of Senator Rand Paul, although the majority of the nation agrees with Paul's sentiment.

"Sen. Paul has some concerns he wants to be able to voice," the Texas Senator said. "We're trying to work with him to help get that done."

"It takes unanimous consent to get an amendment." Senator Cornyn said." If we get one amendment up, you can imagine other people are going to have amendments," he said. "You can essentially accomplish the same thing by a point-of-order and get a vote. He doesn't need consent to do that. So that's an alternative we're going to suggest to him and work with him on."

Senator Rand Paul issued the following statement:

<blockquote>"When the Democrats are in power, Republicans appear to be the conservative party. But when Republicans are in power, it seems there is no conservative party."</blockquote>

<blockquote>"You see, the opposition seems to bring people together, and they know what they're not for. But then they get in power and they decide, we're just going to spend that money too. We're going to send that money to our friends this time."</blockquote>

Rand Paul is absolutely correct and brave to take this stance. He's also said that if the United States of America wants to give the US Military a pay raise, then we should bring our forces home from Afghanistan and give them the cash we're wasting there.

Keep in mind the opium supply which in turn floods the United States of America with heroin is coming from Afghanistan, and that production has only increased under US occupation.

Not just the endless warfare, but the hidden "pork" packed into these budget bills have caused nonstop debt increases that we the people must pay for.

Rand is right, cut the waste, cut the spending, and stop selling our children and grandchildren away for the government's endeavors overseas and ignorant spending here at home on illegal aliens and social welfare policies.

This is a huge breath of fresh air from the GOP, and I hope more come to Rand's side as he fights against the tyrannical debt slavery Americans are forced into.

The closest thing to Rand Paul being a hero is his McCain behavior - right or wrong he's dosed on the power of the deciding vote and pretends he's saving the world.
