    I don't think that's the case for Schumer and McConnell. Unanimous consent means everyone was for it. Now, it's that everyone except Paul was for it - and the impression is that even Paul's vote could have been bought if the bill included an auditor to track the spending. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying the US ought to be sending billions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine, much less billions of dollars that we don't have and will need to borrow in order to do so. But by proposing an independent inspector general to oversee it, Paul waters down his objection by giving the impression that his objection is not with the aid, nor the fact that the US is borrowing the money, but rather that his vote could be bought if the spending just had an auditor to monitor it. I guess I'm just parroting what devil21 said earlier:

    Yes, exactly. He didn't block it - he delayed it. Ironically, it ends up costing more because it now has to go through the extra cost of the full Senate bureaucracy before it's passed. The extra cost is miniscule compared to the bottom line of the bill, but it's extra cost and extra national debt nonetheless. I'd say that it was worth the extra cost to get his message out there, except that the only people who hear that message are people in the Rand Paul choir who already agree with it. Everyone else just sees it as another example of Rand Paul and his followers being assholes. Am I missing something - was there any measurable benefit gained from this (other than Rand Paul pumping up his choir to keep those campaign contributions coming)?

    Hey, don't forget about all the voter suppression going on there: - No ""early voting" prior to the day of the election. - No absentee or mail-in balloting (banned in 1975 due to security concerns). All ballots must be cast in person at a qualified voting location on the day of the election. - Everyone casting a ballot is required to present a government-approved photo ID. - Nationwide effort to de-register people who had died or changed addresses.

    Genes code proteins with mRNA. Artificial mRNA codes proteins. Ergo, artificial mRNA is gene therapy (artificial gene, artificial protein.)
