Congratulations America. You are now the proud owner of an additional $300 billion deficit. Apparently the Republicans only care about shrinking the country’s debt when the Democrats the ones in control of spending the nation’s money.
All the posturing when Obama was in office about outrageous spending was apparently just outrage that the GOP weren’t the ones getting to spend the nation’s future.
Rand Paul stood in the breech and pointed out the hypocrisy. He was one of the few who actually cares about the debt.
“I ran for office because I was very critical of President Obama’s trillion-dollar deficits,” said the Kentucky senator. “Now we have Republicans hand in hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits. I can’t in all honesty look the other way.”
GOP Senator John Cornyn, who is the embodiment of everything wrong with this Congress, declared, “I think it’s irresponsible…the act of a single senator who just is trying to make a point but doesn’t really care too much about who he inconveniences”
That’s right. Instead of championing a member of Congress for standing up for his principles and values, which by the way he was elected by his constituents to do, he was worried that he was missing his bedtime.
These barnacles in Congress have to go. There must be term limits. It becomes more obvious every year that these people are only there to be re-elected.
When will America wake up? We cannot keep spending like this.
