He should announce resigning, as should the others.

WHY?

Both Rand and his crazy father are NOT and NEVER have been conservatives, team players, nor out for anyone but themselves.

So...Rand Paul is saying that Congress voted and granted Hussein the Billions he flew into Iran?

Will he make this public?

Is it in Congressional Record?

I guess Randy Paul doesn’t care that Congress passed the “National Emergencies Act of 1976.”

This act gives President Trump the authority to declare an emergency at the border and to take action.

The turd didn’t fall far from the bull.

After the ‘90 to ‘91 war Wrong Paul toured the morning political talk shows expounding on his theory that the use of armored bulldozers and tanks with plow attachments to clear Iraqi trench lines was tantamount to war crime.

Evidently we should have charged in on foot and jumped in with bayonets and trench knives.

National Emergencies Act

If he doesn’t like it, he should start legislation to have it removed.

I am a Trump supporter. I agree with Paul. That emergency declaration is a bogus law that gives the president too much power. I agree that Congress and only congress controls the purse strings. We do have an emergency. Trump can order the Military to secure the border.
