    Rand Paul on Omnibus Spending Bill: ‘President Hillary Clinton Would Have Been Proud of This Bill’

    by SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY)2 May 20171,725

    Looking at all the smiling faces on the other side of the aisle, I have to ask: are Democrats still the minority party?
    You would be tempted to think the $1 trillion government funding deal is like Christmas morning for them, as Republicans have handed them free media to brag about how much of the President’s agenda they have stopped.

    You’ll see it in the news as an “Omnibus spending bill,” when it should really be called “the Status Quo Protection Act.” President Hillary Clinton would have been proud of this bill.

    It tosses out campaign promises as it continues to fund the military industrial complex and the welfare state.

    It not only rejects President Trump’s calls for cuts to multiple agencies, but it increases their funding by millions of dollars.

    It paves the way for those agencies to engage in more “use it or lose it” September spending.

    It leaves our deficit at well over $500 million.

    While good provisions are tucked in, “[o]verall,” as Bloomberg reported, “the compromise resembles more of an Obama administration-era spending bill than a Trump one.”

    Instead of legislating from crisis to crisis, Republicans should use fiscal deadlines to articulate the principles that supposedly set us apart – to boldly defend the conservative philosophy that fueled the country’s growth and can lead it into a new era of prosperity.

    Yet, for too long, Republican majorities have backed down from those debates. Like Monty Python’s Sir Robin, they have turned and fled from what seems the least bit threatening, with no shortage of people willing to sing their praises for “bravely” doing so.

    Trump is helping Rand pass his healthcare plan, if you think Trump actually supported RyanCare then you are foolish and you need to go read the threads where I addressed this topic. Rand was talking to Trump 2-3 times a week, and Rand told Trump straight up it wasn't going to pass, it didn't have the votes. Trump knew it wasn't going to pass, so he supported it to make sure it was all Paul Ryan's failure and none of it could be blamed on him. Trump hates Paul Ryan.

    Trump is going to help save Syria, with Russia's help.

    Trump made a good call as a politician. Libertarian souls can bitch all they want about principles and being conned. Trump is going to disappointed again. I have enough hairchest.

    Just answer the question. Which game is Trump playing?

    From the comments section:

    Why isn't Rand Paul the face of the republican party?
    Because the site you're reading duped people into voting for a man completely antithetical to everything they claim to believe in
    Feel completely deserted. Trump needs help but he isn't helping himself by caving on what he ran for/on and blaming the dems and the freedom caucus.
    This is what Trump does. It's who he is. Learn that lesson now and fast so you don't make that mistake again. Primary him with the rest of the Progressive Rhino's in 2020.

    I will admit that I thought he would be able to do more.

    I still like him as a person.

    Politically wise he is a mix.

    Do not regret at all for supporting him.
