It appears Rand Paul is the one person really concerned with spending our money!

    Indeed, making a distinction between the message and the messenger is a lost art.

    I have laid out his failings numerous times and is there only because of the district he ran in and his fathers reputation. He has no legislation that does anything that he whines about and offers only stuff that he knows will not ever get a vote. He has not built a block of support within the Senate for any of his positions as well. So his only option to get a headline is to pull stuff like this!!

    Coattail Randi!!!! Fits him to a tee!!!!

    Watch he will be in Iowa soon!!!!!

    When did we start referring to states as districts?

    He does make a habit of last minute grandstanding. Doesn't mean he's wrong though.

    He's right. Why not a clean military appropriations bill? Why tie in domestic waste, um, I mean spending?

    Or shift money from those programs, if the military needs more money? Compromising here was idiotic, when compromising meant spending that much more.

    And there was no need to compromise. Had dems by the short hairs. I blame McConnell.

    Because that's the only way he can get above the noise and if it's not last minute it won't have any impact. He isn't wrong on many issues.
