ALT Title- Don’t blame me, I voted for Rand for POTUS in 2016
Senator Rand Paul slammed Republicans Monday for voting in favor of the $900 billion coronavirus relief bill, saying that they are no better than the Democrats they routinely label as ‘socialists’.
“To so-called conservatives who are quick to identify the socialism of Democrats: If you vote for this spending monstrosity, you are no better,” Paul urged in a speech on the Senate floor:
The Democrat controlled House, as well as the Senate passed the legislation, also tacking on a $1.4 trillion spending bill, prompting Paul to criticise the move as the government giving away “free money”.
“When you vote to pass out free money, you lose your soul and you abandon forever any semblance of moral or fiscal integrity,” Paul urged.
“If free money was the answer… if money really did grow on trees, why not give more free money?” Paul said.
“Why not give it out all the time? Why stop at $600 a person? Why not $1,000? Why not $2,000? Maybe these new Free-Money Republicans should join the Everybody-Gets-A-Guaranteed-Income Caucus? Why not $20,000 a year for everybody, why not $30,000? If we can print out money with impunity, why not do it?” the Senator proclaimed.
In addition to Paul, only five other Republicans voted against the legislation:
Marsha Blackburn ,Rick Scott, Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz
On that list Ted Cruz and Rand are the only two worth a shit. Mike Lee exposed himself as a shill for google and a supporter of the H1B visas long ago and the rest are typical shitheels.
I have to admit I have little problem with actual tax payers getting back 1200 or 600 dollars of their own money stolen from us by the gov via taxes in the first place. I do have problems with…..
In a more nuanced discussion I am sure Doctor Paul would agree with me. Though I’m sure his solution would be an end to income tax all together. The best solution of course.
