Rand Paul Quotes: $1.3 trillion Omnibus spending bill

“Republicans control the government, yet Congress still follows the Democrats’ playbook. Time and again, spending skyrockets, and conservatives are expected to fall in line to praise the party for making the big-spending status quo worse”.

“The debt is up over a trillion the Dow is down…Maybe the GOP holding hands with Democrats isn’t such a great idea”.

“Congress must do better for the American people. We can support our military without further endangering our nation through fiscal recklessness, and I will keep fighting to hold our party to the conservative principles we had no problem proclaiming during the Obama years.”

“This is why people are so upset with politics, because when the Republicans are out of power, when they’re in the minority, they are the conservative party. But then when they get in the majority, there is no conservative party.”

“I agree @realDonaldTrump should veto this sad excuse for legislation because it’s $1.3 trillion in spending that (almost) no one read.”

“If they insist on voting, I will vote no because it spends to much and there’s just too little time to read the bill and let everyone know what’s actually in it.”

“We have border security money for the Middle East but not border security money for the US.”

“I found it! I found it! Border security, what President Trump wanted! no . . .wait a minute section says Defense can spend what funds it determines to enhance the border security of Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and Tunisia.”

“I voted against this deficit-spending bill because I believe our promises to change Washington matter. Even in such an enormous bill that combines so many different things, Congress somehow still failed to deliver for President Trump on issues important to grassroots Americans, including defunding sanctuary cities and stopping forced taxpayer support of Planned Parenthood.”

“I ran for office because I thought the Obama spending and trillion dollar annual deficits were a real problem for our country and now Republicans are doing the same thing.”

“Shame, shame. A pox on both Houses – and parties. $1.3 trillion. Busts budget caps. 2200 pages, with just hours to try to read it.”

“Reading this monstrous bill full of grant programs begun decades ago reminds me of Reagan’s critique: the nearest thing to immortality is a government program.”

“$961 million to destroy our chemical weapons. Who was it, exactly, who convinced our government to pay billions to develop weapons we now find deplorable?”

“Page 392 sec 9007: no $ shall be spent “for the permanent stationing of US forces in Afghanistan” Wonder what they meant by permanent? Some might argue that after 16 years we approaching the definition of permanent.”

“Page 447: a little over $30 billion for Dept of Energy. Wonder if anyone would notice if we had no Dept of Energy.

“Put oversight of nuclear waste in DOD and let supply & demand be our Energy policy”

“$9 billion for Govt Services Admin that oversees federal properties.

“Fed government spends $1.7 billion a year to maintain 770,000 empty buildings while continuing to buy new properties.”

“You have to know what’s in it. Really, should we be looking at 1,000 page bills with 24 hours to decide what’s in them? It’s really not a good way to run your government.”

“So I’m giving them the same grief I gave Obama.”

“It’s a good thing we have Republican control of Congress or the Democrats might bust the budget caps, fund planned parenthood and Obamacare, and sneak gun control without due process into an Omni…wait, what?”
