Rand Paul

Rand PaulLook America, no bling. No rings, no earrings, no tats, no bracelets or watches, at least that I can see. Just Rand Paul, one of the smartest guys in politics.

He’s not our lord and savior, nor is he America’s daddy, but Rand Paul impresses me more and more each day. Talk about putting your money where your mouth is!  Rand Paul is DO, where most politicians are TALK. Obama could take a lesson from this man, and so could most other politicians.

As reported in Politico,

Sen. Rand Paul is taking his own message of fiscal conservatism to heart, returning about 17 percent of his Senate office budget to the U.S. Treasury.

“It’s the only budget I control,” Paul (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday at a news conference in Louisville, Ky., according to a Thursday report in The Courier-Journal, a Louisville-based publication. “It’s not enough, but it’s a start.”

Paul, who is set to return $600,000 from his $3.5 million office budget, has returned six-figure sums before.

The libertarian-leaning lawmaker said his office scrutinizes spending from big-ticket items like travel, down to “computers, paper, ink cartridges. Everything we buy,” the report said.

While Obama spends MORE and pulls a bait and switch with false budget cuts, Rand Paul GIVES TAXPAYERS BACK 17% of OUR money. Here here, Rand Paul. The Tea Party movement applauds your efforts.

    Where’ve you been? Daniel Webster (R-FL) has been doing this annually for YEARS in the US Congress. Why don’t you write about HIM?

    Rand Paul is great. Glad I live in Kentucky right now and I hope he runs for President in 2016. He is not his father, but hopefully will eventually get there.

      As things stand now, I’d vote for Rand. If he “eventually” turns into his father … not so much. There is a REASON Ron Paul lost so many times.

    The article is about Rand returning money, and makes it sound as if it were a wonderful idea thought up by Sen. Paul. All I’m saying was, Rand is not alone, nor was he first – and some of the others deserve a little recognition as well. Regardless, let me be the first to say it … Paul-Cruz 2016!
