Rand Paul decries adding $45 billion more to a military budget that exceeds the next 10 nations combined improving US national security?
“I have ‘shocking’ news for conservatives, big-government Republicans are really secretly tied at the hip to spendthrift Democrats. The Republicans differ only in where they wish to spend the money.”
“Conservatives are often disappointed when Republicans tell us one thing at home when they’re running for office and do quite the opposite as soon as they cross the Potomac.
“…I can best explain it, as I did recently to my Senate Republican colleagues:
“Our leadership paints the massive spending bill before us a Republican victory because it secures $45 billion more for military spending. That is one perspective, but it ignores the real question: Is adding $45 billion more to a military budget that exceeds the next 10 nations combined improving our national security?
