He explained the tax vote. He's a small gov guy. The more money we have and the less the feds have, the better. He talked about a crazy system where waste is not tackled as part of the approval process. He talked about the insanity of some of our global meddling and wasted projects. He talked about what the US gov should be doing, according to the government as it's supposed to function. He expressed great concern about the obscene deficit and the hypocrisy of 'pubs who don't seem to care now that they're in control.
It's a real good speech. Except that the NY Times obviously didn't even bother to hear Rand Paul's explanation for the tax vote, the article is spot on. FWIW, if the Rand Paul who gave that speech has matured enough to do so and is the one who shows up and runs for President (established third party?), I'd support his endeavor.
“He talked about a crazy system where waste is not tackled as part of the approval process. “
In the fantasy that plays in my head, Trump will audit every nook and cranny of the Fed and eliminate waste. Early on, I heard about 6 bil. missing at State, 1/2 bil at HUD and then nothing.
Paul gave a fabulous speech. Reminded us that many Repubs are part of the swamp.
My own Senator from the great state of Texas, John Cornyn criticized Sen. Paul for his filibuster of this monumental fiscal mismanagement...I hope he has a primary challenger. Same goes with RINO Rep.Kevin Brady of The Woodlands Texas.
