Rand Paul Revolts: ‘Republicans Are Emasculated’ and ‘Unwilling to Gain Power Back’

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has ripped Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other Republican senators for caving to President Joe Biden and the Democrats, warning that the GOP has been “emasculated.”

During a fiery appearance on Larry Kudlow’s Fox Business show, Paul blasted all sides over the bipartisan spending deal.

The senator warned that lawmakers will pass the bill “without reading it” and notes that it will add over a trillion dollars in debt next year.

Paul said: “This brings upon us the lie that Republicans really are fiscally conservative.

“The Democrats aren’t. They will not pretend to be fiscally conservative.

“Not one of them up here gives a darn about the debt.

“The Republicans all profess to be, but when you make them vote on the PAYGO resolution, pay as you go, that we can’t have new spending without offsetting it, they always vote to exempt it.

“So the omnibus will be 3,000 pages.

“We’ll get it two hours before they want to pass it.

“No one will read it.

“But hidden in the 3,000 pages will be we’re going to wave PAYGO.

“It would take 41 votes.

“Forty-one votes would stop the big spending.

“If 41, one of us said no and held our ground until there was a compromise, we could force Democrats to reduce spending.

“We have completely and totally abdicated the power of the purse.

“Republicans are emasculated.

“They have no power, and they are unwilling to gain that power back.”


Paul also reiterated his wari g during a press conference,

“Mark my words — December 16th or 18th we’re going to get a 3,000-page bill that’ll have been given to us an hour or two before,” he said.

“No one will read it.

“It’ll add over a trillion dollars to the debt next year.

“The system is not working.”
