The reason for and message behind Rand Paul’s debate and action in the Senate is still here

Senator Rand Paul wrote an opinion editorial for Times in which he discusses and condemns the budget that was passed and the process that passed it. In this era of a Trillion Dollar national debt, the Senator tells his colleagues what they should have done. His action was like turning on a light and watching the bugs scurry for cover. Only they attacked Rand Paul and belittled his opinions. Read this and understand what happened in this latest budget “deal.”

As Written By Senator Rand Paul for TIME:

Last night, for a few hours, your government shut down. Most likely, you slept soundly while this happened. The sun rose, and the world went on. The Government is open again. But the reason for and message behind yesterday’s debate and action in the Senate is still here.

The Senate was set to vote on a 700-page bill that added over $500 billion in new spending to our already out-of-control debt. It was a massive and destructive bargain struck by the leaders of both parties, where both got to blow up the spending “caps” they agreed to just a few short years ago.

I simply asked for one thing in this broken process: a 15-minute vote on whether those caps should or should not be broken. The furor this request set off among leadership, the wailing and screeching among Big Government advocates in Congress and in the media — well, you would think I had asked them to shut down forever.

No. I didn’t want them to shut down at all. Not really. I simply wanted them to act like their spending matters. Like the voices of the people elected to serve matter. Like the process matters…..
