But poor misunderstood Senator-elect Paul is only insisting on his liberty to not do his job!
It’s the freedom to make symbolic meaningless votes Kentuckians demanded! Kudos Bluegrass Staters!
Poor misunderstood Senator-Elect Paul is only insisting on the liberty to not govern. He’s only insisting on the freedom Kentucky voters demanded for an ultimately pointless symbolic gesture! Kudos Bluegrass Staters you’ve made the TX GOP seem reasonable and competent by comparison.
Not Rick Perry he’s nuts but maybe the rest of them.
Opposing the increase in government spending and being consistent in that position by refusing to vote to raise the debt ceiling hardly qualifies as throwing a temper tantrum.
He may not vote to increase the debt ceiling but he’s got that DC religion on earmarks:
“In a bigger shift from his campaign pledge to end earmarks, he tells me that they are a bad “symbol” of easy spending but that he will fight for Kentucky’s share of earmarks and federal pork, as long as it’s doled out transparently at the committee level and not parachuted in in the dead of night. “I will advocate for Kentucky’s interests,” he says.” – Veronique de Rugy on NRO
As Ms. de Rugy mentions in her piece it’s a significant shift from Paul’s “no-pork pledge” in Feb 2010
It’s the liberty! He has the freedom to not allow the government to borrow more and to also submit earmarks! Freedom y’all!
