Rand Paul Set a Radical Example...

Pot­ter: But if you haven’t spent all of this year’s bud­get why send the sur­plus back to Washington?

D’Angelo: Num­ber #1 Wash­ing­ton loves to get money, they’re always giv­ing it away, you send a bureau­crat back there a check he’ll spin in his chair for an hour.

After Mash 1983

Right now Wash­ing­ton is going nuts over the idea of seques­tra­tion. How on earth are peo­ple going to func­tion with a reduc­tion in the increase in spend­ing that they had counted on? Par­tic­u­larly when you’ve got peo­ple like Rand Paul insist­ing that seques­tra­tion is a drop in the bucket.

On the sub­ject of seques­tra­tion, the Ken­tucky Repub­li­can makes the case that these defense cuts amount to a drop in the bucket. “Seques­tra­tion was $1.2 tril­lion over 10 years. And we will be adding $9 tril­lion over 10 years [in more spend­ing]. Instead of spend­ing 45 tril­lion over ten years we’ll spend 44 tril­lion,” Paul said.

Oh Yeah, YEAH? That’s big talk when that 2 – 3% is com­ing from some­one else’s increase. I’d like to see if Rand Paul can do with less money than he expects.

At a press con­fer­ence on Wednes­day in Louisville, Sen. Rand Paul announced that he will be return­ing $600,000 to the United States Trea­sury, money unspent from his offi­cial oper­at­ing budget.

The total amount being returned is more than 20 per­cent of Sen. Paul’s orig­i­nal office budget.

20% Cut! An actual cut, er…ah…well… it’s a stunt! Any­body can do it for ONE Year. It’s not like He’s been doing it every year so some­thing:

Fresh­man Sen. Rand Paul is mak­ing good on his promise to cut fed­eral spend­ing. The Ken­tucky Repub­li­can and tea-​party favorite said Thurs­day he’s return­ing $500,000 to the U.S. Trea­sury — money from his oper­at­ing bud­get that his office never spent.

That story is dated Jan­u­ary 12th 2012.

That’s 1.1 mil­lion returned over two years.

There is noth­ing more dan­ger­ous to a false meme than an exam­ple con­trary to it.

I’m sure the MSM would LOVE to cover this deeper, but Marco Rubio was seen near a bub­bler and MSNBC & CNN only has so many resources to spare.

Update: Smitty has a bit of spare time to cover it.

Potter: But if you haven’t spent all of this year’s budget why send the surplus back to Washington?

D’Angelo: Number #1 Washington loves to get money, they’re always giving it away, you send a bureaucrat back there a check he’ll spin in his chair for an hour.

Right now Washington is going nuts over the idea of sequestration. How on earth are people going to function with a reduction in the increase in spending that they had counted on? Particularly when you’ve got people like Rand Paul insisting that sequestration is a drop in the bucket.

On the subject of sequestration, the Kentucky Republican makes the case that these defense cuts amount to a drop in the bucket. “Sequestration was $1.2 trillion over 10 years. And we will be adding $9 trillion over 10 years [in more spending]. Instead of spending 45 trillion over ten years we’ll spend 44 trillion,” Paul said.

Oh Yeah, YEAH? That’s big talk when that 2-3% is coming from someone else’s increase. I’d like to see if Rand Paul can do with less money than he expects.

At a press conference on Wednesday in Louisville, Sen. Rand Paul announced that he will be returning $600,000 to the United States Treasury, money unspent from his official operating budget.

The total amount being returned is more than 20 percent of Sen. Paul’s original office budget.

20% Cut! An actual cut, er…ah…well… it’s a stunt! Anybody can do it for ONE Year. It’s not like He’s been doing it every year so something:

Freshman Sen. Rand Paul is making good on his promise to cut federal spending. The Kentucky Republican and tea-party favorite said Thursday he’s returning $500,000 to the U.S. Treasury — money from his operating budget that his office never spent.

That story is dated January 12th 2012.

That’s 1.1 million returned over two years.

There is nothing more dangerous to a false meme than an example contrary to it.

I’m sure the MSM would LOVE to cover this deeper, but Marco Rubio was seen near a bubbler and MSNBC & CNN only has so many resources to spare.

Update: Smitty has a bit of spare time to cover it.
