Sen. Rand Paul holds up Senate vote on budget package as shutdown looms

The stalemate began when Paul repeatedly objected to a quick vote on the deal struck by his fellow Kentucky Republican, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Paul said he was asking for a recorded vote on reversing the bill’s spending increases. That effort could delay a final Senate vote until 1 a.m. Friday, past the deadline for keeping the government open.

“I ran for office because I was very critical of President Obama’s trillion-dollar deficits,” the Kentucky senator said. “Now we have Republicans hand in hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits. I can’t in all honesty look the other way.”

At one point, an exasperated Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., took to the Senate floor to lambaste Paul for what Tillis described as “theater.”

All Senator Rand Paul is asking for is a 15-minute vote on his amendment to restore the budget caps. He is ready to proceed at any time

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog
    when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  2. I don’t even understand how I finished up right here, however I believed this

    to a famous blogger for those who aren’t already.
    Cheers!

  3. We absolutely love your blog and find almost all
    of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers

    having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
