Ran Paul block the passage of 9/11 healthcare funding

Shame on this man.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul objected Wednesday to an attempt to pass the bill funding 9/11 first responders’ health care unanimously, arguing that passing such a long-term bill without offsetting the cost would contribute to the national debt.

The delay presents another hurdle in the dramatic fight to secure funding for the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, despite Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s continued reassurances that the fund would be fully funded. After comedian and fund advocate Jon Stewart gave emotional testimony last month accusing lawmakers of failing to support the bill, the measure was swiftly approved for to a floor vote in the House and passed the lower chamber last week on an overwhelmingly bipartisan 402-12 vote.

The hills this clown chooses to die on amaze me. Where was he when massive tax cuts were being pushed without budget offsets? Or the plethora of other things we waste money on?

Corporate profits are more important

10 hypocrites.

What an especially vile deplorable Rand turned out to be. Hopefully he’s protested against Donald’s taxpayer funded golfing escapades with the same vigor as protesting paying for 9/11 responders’ medical care.

We can afford $1.5T for corporations and zillionaires, but can’t pay to help our first responders.

The GOP is truly shameless and worships at the alter of greed over human decency.

This guy really chooses some weird places to draw lines in the sand.

Rand Paul is a piece of garbage.
