Rand Paul: Congress Passed the 1.1-Trillion-Dollar Budget without Reading It

Here is Paul Ryan implicitly admitting the budget process wasn’t done the way the Founding Fathers intended but swearing Congress will change their ways next year.

Paul Ryan failed to mention that Congress passed an anti-Fourth-Amendment bill to empower more spying on the American people. The spending bill was obviously a collaboration of Republicans and Democrats against the American people.

The best you can say is that many Republicans voted for the bill without reading it. According to The Hill, “Paul: Nobody read the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill.”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday said he voted against the $1.1 trillion government spending bill that passed Congress last week because nobody had a chance to read the behemoth legislation.

“It was over a trillion dollars, it was all lumped together, 2,242 pages, nobody read it, so frankly my biggest complaint is that I have no idea what kind of things they stuck in the bill,” Paul told host John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York’s AM-970.

“I voted against it because I won’t vote for these enormous bills that no one has a chance to read,” he added.

“We were given it yesterday or the day before the bill came forward, and so this is not a way to run government. It’s a part of the reason why government is broke.”

Paul said his Republican colleagues in the House and Senate are just as complicit as Democrats for the legislation.

“Once again this came not at the behest of just the Democrats,” he said. “It came at the behest of right-wing Republicans who want military spending and left-wing Democrats who want welfare spending, and that’s the dirty little secret.

“Both parties are at fault for it,” he added.

Yes, but one party runs on the promise they want to increase spending while the other promises to restrain spending. Thus, Democrats are more honest than Republicans.
