Hey, Kentucky. Why do you guys keep voting for this clown? Because “muh rights”?

«In July, Paul blocked a bipartisan bill that would ensure that a victims’ compensation fund related to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, never runs out of money. Paul questioned the bill’s 70-year time frame and said any new spending should be offset by corresponding cuts. After the amendment failed, he wound up being one of two no votes on the legislation.

He even briefly caused the government to shut down in 2018, using a procedural tactic to block the Senate from meeting the deadline to keep the government open because he objected to the price tag.»
