Rand Paul Disses the Budget Agreement

Speaking truth to phonies, Senator Rand Paul said of the budget agreement, which will first extend the budget short-term through next Thursday, followed by a likely vote on a  budget deal that calls for an absurd ridiculously low $40 billion in cuts over the remaining six months of the fiscal year:
I voted against this short-term continuing resolution for the same reason I voted against the last one and the one before that – because it does not set us on a path to fixing the spending and debt problems our country is facing.

As I have said before, there is not much of a difference between a $1.5 trillion deficit and a $1.6 trillion deficit – both will lead us to a debt crisis that we may not recover from.


  1. This deal is like a deadbeat drunk promising to take a half sip less of whiskey the next night--it is completely meaningless.

  2. It's like a person growing their credit cards balances by $5,000 who decides to solve the problem by spending $180 less next month.

    Crash and burn.
