    Rand Paul, Johnson may as well be a democrat

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...81686870&ei=26

    "As I see it now, I'm not so sure there's a difference between Mike Johnson being in charge and Democrats being in charge," he said. "The debt, the deficit this year will be $1.5-2 trillion, and that's Mike Johnson's bill, he put it forward, he supported it with a minority of Republicans, with the majority of Democrats. This is not using the power of the purse, this is abdicating the power of the purse."

    He continued: "People have to be strong in their convictions. He was seen as a conservative before he came to the speakership...but now he's completely changed and lost all his principles...If the Democrats want this level of spending, we want this level of compromise, splitting the difference. The Democrats got everything they want in the spending [bill], and all the hawks got what they want too."

    Johnson doesnt fight on anything. He looks like a buffoon taking orders from Trump on everything now. He and trump think we are idiots by proposing a voter integrity bill that isnt going anywhere.

    Here is Rand talking with Maria. She must have been rather perturbed

    I'm not sure there's any difference between any GOP Speaker and the Democrats.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    Trump is the one who is propping up Johnson. Doesnt really matter as Jeffries is going to be speaker in Nov.
