    Rand says he'll 'stay here all weekend' to get foreign aid cut included in coronavirus bill

    Congress agreed to put a bipartisan emergency spending package to curb the spread COVID-19 up for a House vote Wednesday, but it may get held up by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who wants to include an amendment to the bill.

    Paul, a deficit hawk, wants to ensure the U.S. has some way to fund the COVID-19 package, so he's trying to sneak a foreign aid cut in there. Paul is confident he'll get a vote, but he's prepared to stick around Washington all weekend either way.

    @caphilltrish

    "We will have an amendment to pay for it," Paul told me. "We've talked to the powers that be and let them know...that we'll have an amendment to offset it. If we dont get the amendment, we can stay here all weekend for all I care." Paul says he thinks he'll get a vote, though

    Paul is certainly consistent when it comes to spending bills. Over the summer, he was opposed to passing the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund (which also had bipartisan support), arguing that he'll "always take a stand against borrowing more money to pay for programs rather than setting priorities and cutting waste."

    As for the new coronavirus, Paul said Tuesday thinks there's "room for optimism," noting that he could see it dissipating more quickly than people are portraying.

    Lol.. get ready to defend Rand from all your friends and family. This is the kind of stuff that really pisses people off. They see it as underhanded and bad, when it is the opposite.. underhanded and good.

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    Richest of the MAGA's top donor couple is Israeli and he just signed bill approving $38B of taxpayers donation to Israel.

    How should Rand be defended if attacked by Israel lobby (non-parasitic wing)?

    Rand's amendment was promptly voted down, he was the lone no vote on the bill, and the hate is pouring in on Twitter.

    Another typical day for the most principled man in politics.

    David Badash is a $#@!ing $#@!.

    [Rand] is an ophthalmologist without a bachelor’s degree who has not been board certified by a current licensing board. He reportedly had to start his own medical association because “his ophthalmology certification is contested.”

    In addition, I sent the following comment to Rawstory:

    Michael Badash is a dishonest reporter, you shouldn't be publishing his articles on your website.

    Although technically accurate, this statement is 100% dishonest without context:


    "[Rand Paul] is an ophthalmologist without a bachelor’s degree who has not been board certified by a current licensing board. He reportedly had to start his own medical association because “his ophthalmology certification is contested.”"


    https://www.rawstory.com/2020/03/go-...spending-bill/


    Rand Paul graduated from Duke Medical School, one of the top Medical Schools in the world. The reason he doesn't have a bachelor's degree is because he was in an accelerated medical school program that allowed him to advance more quickly because he was smarter than many of his peers. The fact that he doesn't have a bachelor's degree is a credit to his abilities and intelligence, but your reporter David Badash makes it sound like he doesn't have a degree at all.


    If I owned a publication, this type of dishonest reporting would never be allowed. I would be completely embarrassed to find out something like this slipped by and I had reporters with such a lack of credibility.


    I would certainly not allow David Badash to write articles for my publication and I recommend that you check in on any editors who approved this article as well.

    Rand doing great work, all the time and scheming in the most creative ways to get done what needs to be done.

    Yet he gets all this crap from RPF and the laughable "libertarian base".

    Screw all the ungrateful good for nothing, do zero ideological isolationists. You know who you are.

    Hah, seems to work now. He probably reported it, but it doesn't break twitter's rules.

    I clicked on his tweet earlier and it said not available tho, so I'm not completely sure what's going on.

    That's what it says when I try to go to twitter to see your tweet, you are being shadowbanned.

    I just tested it again.
