Senate passes budget resolution on way to major tax cuts The 51 to 49 vote was split mostly on party lines. Only GOP Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky voted no. ... I would like to add that Rand Paul should not be voted in when he's up for re-election. He has done nothing to help the Republicans when it comes to major legislation, often making bone-headed excuses as to why. ... It's clear that Chuckie doesn't know anything about taxes.
