Rand Paul rips omnibus: Maybe ‘holding hands’ with Democrats not such a great idea – washingtonexaminer

 

“The debt is up over a trillion the Dow is down … Maybe the GOP holding hands Democrats isn’t such a great idea,” Paul tweeted.

Though Paul initially seemed poised to prevent a vote on the bill before the weekend – a delay that would have resulted in a government shutdown – he relented despite his opposition to the size and scope of the 2,232-page document. He mocked the short time span which lawmakers had to read the bill in a live-tweeting spectacle and urged Trump to veto it.

Trump himself was unhappy with the bill he signed due to concessions that were made to Democrats, and griped about its paltry border security funding and failure to codify protections for undocumented youth.
