“Republican” Senate Fails Yet Again to End Greatest Threat to the United States

Senator Rand Paul is one of only a few Republican Senators willing to take on this looming national emergency.
Most experts agree, this issue will finally destroy our great nation.
And “Republican” Senators just failed again to stop the greatest threat facing the United States today.
Most everyone agrees that federal government spending is out of control.
Democrats claim it’s all because of defense spending and not enough discretionary spending.
They tell their voters they will slash military spending and increase all other spending.
On the other hand, “Republicans” run every two or six years on a strong platform of cutting spending, reducing government waste, fraud and abuse, and restoring fiscal sanity.
At least the Democrats are honest.
Because in the U.S. Senate, Rand Paul has given the Republicans multiple opportunities to cut spending and balance the budget.
As part of his continuing efforts to restore fiscal responsibility in Washington and put his fellow Senators on the record, Dr. Paul first introduced his Pennies Plan budget back in April.
This bill simply proposes that for every on-budget dollar the federal government spends in Fiscal Year 2019, they spend two pennies less on every dollar (a cut of two percent per year) for the next five years.
This plan would balance the federal government’s budget – without touching Social Security – while providing Congress the full flexibility to make the best decisions on where to save taxpayer funds.
And every time, the Mitch McConnell-led spineless Republican Senate votes no.
This last time, only 23 Republicans joined Senator Paul and voted for his amendment to cut discretionary spending by a very modest 2%. A cut, by the way, that most government agencies say they would support!
Among some of the Republican Senate “budget hawks” who voted with Mitch McConnell against what should’ve been easy cuts for any Republican are Roger Wicker (R-MS), Richard Burr (R-NC), Tom Cotton (R-AR), and of course Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
You can see the final vote here.
Of course, these and the other Republican liberals will now go home and tell their voters how conservative they are and how hard they are fighting.
Yet, taxpayers are still paying to fund research into shrimp on treadmills, a study of the 1972 video game Pong, starting a professional cricket league in Afghanistan, study the sex habits of quails on cocaine, plus $114,500,000 more in similarly ridiculous and wasteful spending.
Meanwhile, our debt soars to more than $21 trillion!!
So the next time one of these Republican sellouts tell you they’re fighting for you – call them out on it.
Ask them why they won’t cut unconstitutional spending and why they continue to lie about it.
In a speech on the Senate floor shortly before the vote, Dr. Paul remarked how most people and groups he’s spoken to across the country understand the urgent need to cut federal spending.
“Even the groups receiving it are willing to cut 1 or 2 percent. But you know who’s not? The Senate. The Congress. They won’t cut anything,” Dr. Paul stated.
Paul then went on to highlight how runaway government spending is to blame for our massive deficits, even though federal revenue is actually up before adding, “My amendment won’t pass because people are afraid that the public won’t like them if they don’t give them more money. I’m afraid we’ll destroy the country if we keep running more deficits.”

And make it your priority to look at the vote on Dr. Paul’s amendment linked above and give your Senators who voted against it a piece of your mind.
