WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released the following statement after voting to disapprove of the national emergency declaration regarding the border:
I stand with President Trump on the need for a border wall and stronger border security, but the Constitution clearly states that money cannot be spent unless Congress has passed a law to do so.

He should announce resigning, as should the others.
Not always. IT IS A FREAKIN’ EMERGENCY.
Eat sheet Rand.
Amazes me how when democrats vote for democrats, they get democrats
When republicans vote for republicans, we get democrats
I was so in his corner....
....very disappointed now
Poor l’il Rand. Daddy’s boy,trying to look all Constitutional,only comes off as stupid and weak. Do you know what the USSC is for dumbazz?
The search function works.
Oops sorry. Mods, please lock this thread
Both Rand and his crazy father are NOT and NEVER have been conservatives, team players, nor out for anyone but themselves.
Will he make this public?
Is it in Congressional Record?
You might want to ask the moderators for a handle change. they can do it.
I guess Randy Paul doesn’t care that Congress passed the “National Emergencies Act of 1976.”
This act gives President Trump the authority to declare an emergency at the border and to take action.
The turd didn’t fall far from the bull.
After the ‘90 to ‘91 war Wrong Paul toured the morning political talk shows expounding on his theory that the use of armored bulldozers and tanks with plow attachments to clear Iraqi trench lines was tantamount to war crime.
Evidently we should have charged in on foot and jumped in with bayonets and trench knives.
I’ll move to Kentucky and vote for the guy who kicked the shit out of him. What a lowlife.

National Emergencies Act
If he doesn’t like it, he should start legislation to have it removed.
A man is known by the company he keeps. Just look at the others who voted with Rand. Thats says it all.
I am a Trump supporter. I agree with Paul. That emergency declaration is a bogus law that gives the president too much power. I agree that Congress and only congress controls the purse strings. We do have an emergency. Trump can order the Military to secure the border.
