Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul said Tuesday that he cannot vote to add more to the national debt. The lawmaker wrote in a post on Twitter that “I promised Kentucky to vote against reckless, deficit spending and I will do just that.”

Rand Paul may be one of the few fiscally conservative Republicans in politics today.  Paul’s tweet didn’t suggest he would oppose the GOP tax bill due to deficit concerns.

 

The lawmaker clarified in a follow-up tweet that tax cuts “are never the problem.”

Senators voted Thursday to approve a two-week spending bill that averted a government shutdown. It is unclear how Paul’s stance will affect negotiations to keep the government running beyond December 22. The temporary spending bill that passed Thursday went through overwhelmingly, with 81 voting in support. Which really isn’t a surprise.  The government isn’t going to shut itself down, nor will they willing reduce their size and power.

According to CNBC, the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that the Senate’s tax plan would add more than $1 trillion to the federal budget deficit over 10 years. Paul initially supported even deeper tax cuts than the GOP proposed. The White House has said that increased economic growth will pay for the tax cuts.

  • He’s right, spending needs to be cut, to keep taxes low. But ultimately some taxes need to be outright eliminated – salary & property tax. Business income can be taxed but at a low and flat rate. No licensing/certification fees.

      But ultimately all taxes need to be outright eliminated – theft isn’t a valid method of changing ownership.

    They do not even need taxes when the government has an open check book from the Rothschild owned Fed Bank. When ever the government spends money it comes from the population. Either front door by taxes or back door by printing. Either way our standard of living is reduced. Reduced taxes means nothing unless accompanied by reduced PRINTING (translated as “borrowing” from the Fed, that sound so much better doesn’t it, it would be more accurately described as TAXING from the Fed). The old shell game, that the elite so love to do to their peons.

    What’s the difference? It’s all funny money they’re talking about anyway. Nothing backed by nothing = nothing. It’s actually quite comical if you step back and look at it. Go ahead and add another 100 trillion to it….what’s it going to matter?

    On another note, I’m glad to see Rand is back from his recent ass kicking. He’s one of the few in the swamp that I’m reluctantly inclined to believe hasn’t been completely compromised (yet). His dad however, is the best of the best…

    • THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH YOU DON’ FA

      Doesn’t Rand still pledge his allegiance to AIPAC like all the others? Fvck him then, he’s no savior, he’s just another zio owned harlot.

    What is a better definition of TREASON, but a “captured” Govt. putting a 20 TRILLION DOLLAR DEBT on the backs of the People? …for what? A FAKE and CONTRIVED WAR on terror, for Globalist pedophile satanist Bankers to make money. Treason has a DUE at the end of a ROPE.
