Senator Rand Paul let it rip today on the Senate floor telling Senators to stop piling debt on future generations…open the economy, and cut waste in the budget.
Senator Paul was commenting on the outrageous COVID Stimulus Bill that’s full of pork (see report below).
He hits the nail on the head:
It’s like Deja Vu all over again with the multi-trillion-dollar stimulus bill that Congress just put together. It’s the exact same amount that was in the last Stimulus bill under Obama. Both of these bills are similar in that they have billions in giveaways to redistribute to foreign countries. This has angered Americans looking at the details below, and they cannot believe Americans get a paltry $600. It should be called the ‘Americans Last’ Bill. Nancy Pelosi called the lame $600 check for Americans “significant.”
For the record, President Trump put Americans first with his proposal back in October:
Let the record show that this was President @realDonaldTrump‘s offer back on October 6th, 2020.
Sir, you should call an emergency press conference to veto this WASTEFUL & INSULTING monstrosity. Repeat your offer. Dare them to override the veto in front of every single American. https://t.co/Cx8Dw0xa2E

According to The Conservative Treehouse, the COVIDE Relief Bill is a 30/70 split with 30% going to Americans and businesses in need. The BIG problem is that 70% goes to “political donors, special interests, environmental lobbyists, K-Street groups who wrote the bill, foreign interests, Wall Street and corporate beneficiaries.”
The bill is $2.5 TRILLION COVID/Omnibus spending bill that totals over 5,600 pages. [LINK TO BILL]
The Stimulus Bill:
The gov’t closes the economy. You lose your job. You face eviction.
$600 for all your troubles.
Meanwhile, they send:
$135 million to Burma
$85.5 million to Cambodia
$1.4 billion for “Asia Reassurance Initiative Act.”
$130 million to Nepal
They hate you.

Can’t forget the 453,000,000 for Ukraine.
This is exactly what’s wrong with DC. Both Parties are NOT putting the American people first!
