    One guy fighting the good fight. Who else is with him in the Senate? Mike Lee? We know Thomas is on the right side of this in the House.

    Rand ia still blocking the defense bill

    While senators have said they want an open amendment process, one risk is that any senator can derail it. Some senators, including Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman James Inhofe (R-Okla.), expressed concern that Paul could block amendments if he does not get a vote on his legislative priorities.

    “I have not had a conversation” with Paul, said Inhofe. “I find that I have better success with him when I don’t have a conversation with him. But he is doing kind of the same thing that he’s done in the past."

    Sergio Gor, Paul’s deputy chief of staff, said in an e-mail that the Kentucky Republican “would support a fully open amendment process” but noted that “an amendment process that is limited to the chosen amendments of leadership is a far cry from an open process and vastly different from previous years’ precedent.”

    Sounds like Inhofe is pissed LOL!
