Sen. Rand Paul stated Thursday that he’s a ‘no’ vote on a continuing resolution arguing that it's going to best put the nation in a worse monetary scenario.
“I’ll be a no vote because I’m not going to vote to continue to put the country further into debt,” Mr. Paul, Kentucky Republican, stated on Fox News.
“What I would propose is that we spent money at the same rate we spent it last year,” he defined. “If you do that for five years you actually balance the budget in five years.”
Mr. Paul’s “no” vote places Republicans in a good more difficult scenario to steer clear of a govt shutdown. They already wish to courtroom 9 Democratic votes to achieve the 60-vote threshold to cross a spending measure, and with Republicans opposing the invoice now too, they’ll want much more Democrats on their aspect prior to Friday’s cut-off date.
