Additional spending keeps students "at the center of our universe"
See where $873 million will be going
My fiance Jared and I decided to have an adventure date at the fair with the stipulation we would not spend more than $60. See how we did it!
“I just have one question before this morning’s vote, one simple question. Is this really the best we can do? Is this the best we have to offer folks who are staring at $4 a gallon gasoline? A bill that even Democrats admit won’t do anything to lower the price of gas? And a process that blocks any other idea from even coming to the floor for a vote?"
Rand Paul's bait right now is a "penny plan" that would cut government spending by 1% each year for six years. His switch is the 25% mauling of government he doesn't want his supporters thinking about.
"This plan does not solve our problem. Not even close. I cannot abide the destruction of our economy, therefore I vigorously oppose this deal and I urge my colleagues and the American people to do the same."
The CC&B plan would cut total spending by $111 billion in FY 2012, and would also cap total federal spending at 22.5 percent of GDP next year; gradually decreasing spending levels over 10 years, until locking in at 19.9 percent of GDP in 2021 and beyond.
Rand Paul's proposed budget for 2012 did not get nearly the attention it deserved. Here's another installment in rectifying that.
You know that moment when Wile E. Coyote is over the cliff but he hasn't started falling yet? That's where Mitch McConnell is now with the debt ceiling issue -- and only the President of the United States can save him.
Rand Paul's budget took Washington nowhere, but it will take us inside his head!
