Rand Paul: It's A "Lie" Republicans Are Fiscally Conservative

Rand Paul is a Republican himself, so don't think he's crazy.

He's just here to let his fellow Americans in on a little secret:

Republicans aren't being as responsible with your tax dollars as they say they are.

On December 14, Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky made time for an interview on "Kudlow," airing on Fox Business Network.

While there, Breitbart reports that he said what many Republican voters have been thinking for a while:

"Republicans had 'emasculated' themselves by agreeing to the framework for an omnibus spending bill to fund the government through 2023."

Paul wants Republicans to actually step up and stop the big spending, not just SAY they'll do so.

"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."

According to Paul, this goal is totally achievable:

"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."
