    Just in case you don’t know, the GOP tax cut that Paul voted for blew up the deficit and will help add 8 trillion to the National debt. He is either a moron or the biggest piece of shit to ever be elected to Congress. I think it’s safe to say that McConnell cowardly pushed for Paul to do this.

    I feel like this should be an easy poll to answer but, whatever, this is America after all.

    Typical lies, Paul voted for the tax bill when it had paygo provisions, he said he would do the same for this bill if it's paid for, but how do you pay for a 72 year blank check? That's exactly what the bill is as it stands now.

    Well see you’re an idiot if you think the tax law will pay for itself.

    Real simple...........He wants to do it but wants to find cuts to pay for it.............

    The money only grows on trees in la la land.........

    Income taxes have increased revenues..........business taxes down under Trump.............And very good job growth............

    Such is the liquidity trap of cuts versus increases...............the side that puts more Americans to work makes more sense........but Billy would rather chase business away like the idiots in California do now................Oh well.

    I haven't kept abreast about it and maybe shouldn't comment.
    But Rand Paul is no dummy, so if he thinks something smells rank in Denmark, then it probably is.
    Just based on my own political acumen.

    Bullshit. He voted for the hugely irresponsible tax cut and didn't care if there wasn't spending cuts. Now all of a sudden he cares when it comes down to care for heroes of the worst terror attack in our history? He can go fuck himself. I can't believe I actually used to think he was genuine, he is a piece of shit.

    He will vote for it..........Wants cuts to compensate.....

    Now we can go down that path..................tons of stuff to be cut or sold to pay for it...............Could do waste books...........maintained buildings for massive bucks that no one uses............duplicate jobs at different departments...............ARE WASTEFUL.........

    Cut some of that junk...............to pay for it................That isn't unreasonable...............You also don't hand out blank checks to politicians to hand out either..........winds up in their pockets instead of the people who need it all the time.

    Myself, I'm looking for factual responses to get valid insight.
    Not emotional knee-jerk responses like yours that shed absolutely no insight on this issue

    Why doesn’t he just be an adult and propose a separate bill that would cut spending? He could go after SS. I’m sure you’d love that.
