Rand Paul will vote against budget deal; calls cuts negligible - TheHill.comSen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a founding member of the Senate Tea Party Caucus, is urging his colleagues to vote against the spending deal between President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
Paul, who has proposed cutting up to $500 billion from discretionary spending over the rest of 2011, said the cuts agreed to Friday night are negligible.
“The much-ballyhooed 2011 continuing resolution will leave the federal government spending $1.6 trillion more than it takes in,” Paul wrote in a letter to Senate and House colleagues. “Despite descriptions of cuts, the 2011 Congress will spend more than it did in 2010 and with a larger annual deficit. It is the third year in a row with a record deficit.
“Only in Washington can a budget that spends more than it did the year before, with a larger deficit, be portrayed as 'cutting,' ” he wrote.
Good job Rand, these "cuts" are nothing but token bull****. **** the rest of the scum who think these "cuts" actually do any kind of dents in the budget.
