Rand Paul single-handedly shuts down government

For the second time less than a month, the government couldn’t pay for itself, thanks to Sen. Rand Paul and his sudden renewed interests in the national debt and budget deficit.

“I ran for office because I was very critical of President Obama’s trillion-dollar deficits,” the LA Times quoted Paul. “Now we have Republicans hand in hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits. I can’t in all honesty look the other way.”

Paul is so concerned about the rising debt that just last December, he blithely voted for the largest tax cut of his career. That cut is projected to add $1 trillion to future debt.
