Rand Paul Issues Plea for Help From Libertarians and Conservatives

The below video from Senator Rand Paul is a heroic attempt to slow government spending but it doesn't appear there are enough in Congress that take such a principled position.

The spending will go on and thus Trump's tax reform is nothing but a two-fold shift in how government will squeeze even more money out of the economy, nothing else. For 30%, there will be an immediate increase in taxes, the rest will be made up by government borrowing that will squeeze out private sector financing.

  1. After courting the support of Repubs like Rand Paul on his tax reform bill, Trump now has the nerve to hold his signing of the bill hostage to concessions on a number of issues related to the CR funding the gov't from those same folks. There is something very dysfunctional about all of this. I assume the Repubs will cave to tax cuts and the same and/or more spending. However, if they don't, things could get real interesting.
