Senate Democrats join with Rand Paul to oppose Saudi arms sale -
It was nice living in a free country. Read this... *from Dudley brown and rand Paul* I've got bad news. Last night, Harry Reid's attempt to muzzle pro-gun free speech with a new Constitutional amendment passed its first Senate vote with enough Republican support to secure the 2/3 needed for final passage. Fortunately, we've still got time to convince swing Senate Democrats and weak-kneed Republicans to change their minds before the final Senate vote happens in the next few days. Please sign your Emergency Fax Petition against SJR-19 by clicking here so we can deliver it to your Senators while there’s still time. Then, if you live in one of these swing-Senators' states, please let them know you're disappointed they voted to advance the anti-gun and anti-free speech Constitutional amendment yesterday. Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) (202) 224-3004 Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Mississippi) (202) 224-5054 Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) (202) 224-5824 Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee) (202) 224-4944 Sen. Kay Hagan (D ...
Gun Owners of America GOA Activists Help Rand Paul Put Harry Reid on the Defensive! -- Reid derails appropriations process in order to avoid gun vote Not a GOA member yet? Make sure to join Gun Owners of America! If there is any doubt about the hatred that Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats hold for the Second Amendment, that hatred was made apparent last week. To review the bidding: The Senate was slated, last week, to consider amendments to the giant appropriations bill funding the Justice and Commerce Departments. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) had submitted an amendment to prohibit Attorney General Eric Holder from continuing Operation Choke Point -- a program designed to shut down gun stores by forcing banks to dry up their credit and to stop processing their credit card purchases. You will remember that Gun Owners of America alerted you to the Paul amendment and urged you to take action in support of it. And, wow, did your efforts make an impact! GOA is very grateful to the thousands upon thousands of .. ...
I spoke with Rand Paul today before his speech here on reining in the NSA and protecting privacy, which was received enthusiastically. He’s one of the few people in America who can get a standing ovation at the Conservative Political Action Committee and also at Berkeley. But Berkeley wouldn’t have been so welcoming had he mentioned his opposition to abortion even if a woman’s life is at stake, or his negative view of *** marriage. He’s a libertarian only when convenient. We talked vaguely about national politics and he told me how much he collaborated with Senate Democrats. I suggested he urge his Republican colleagues to do the same. Paul has the superficially pleasing demeanor of a velvet glove fit firmly around a right-wing extremist’s iron fist.
The Top Ten Bad Votes of Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) 1. Thad Cochran Voted to Let Harry Reid Fund ObamaCare (2013, Roll Call Vote 206) Senator Cochran voted to end debate and allow Senate Democrats to re-insert funding for ObamaCare into the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government. Although Cochran did vote against the final bill, he and all Republicans knew that voting for cloture to end debate would allow Senator Harry Reid to fund ObamaCare by a party-line vote, and thus a vote for cloture was a de facto vote to fund ObamaCare. 2. Thad Cochran Voted for Medicare Part D (2003, RCV 457) Senator Cochran voted to pass Medicare Part D, a massive entitlement expansion that conservatives rightly predicted would tremendously expand the deficit and add trillions of dollars in long term unfunded liabilities to the federal deficit. 3. Thad Cochran Voted for the Federal Takeover of Education Senator Cochran has been in the Senate long enough to have voted to help President Carter establish the Departm ...
The President and Senate Democrats want to shut down government tomorrow. House GOP has offered compromise.
We listened to you and now will fight: Restore America's Voice has delivered 2.1 million petitions to the House and Senate demanding repeal of ObamaCare. Senate Democrats have ignored them--and every poll. Even if the Senate acted faithfully, Barack Obama cares even less what Americans think about his signature issue and would veto repeal. There are three paths forward: Mid-term elections next year could deliver a Senate majority that will then repeal, court cases could overturn it or John Boehner could risk a government shutdown by defunding ObamaCare in this fall's Continuing Resolution. You called it and we listened: Get ready for a new petition--to John Boehner to defund Obamacare.
Senate Democrats have decided that holding the Internal Revenue Service accountable is not a priority right now. On Tuesday the Democratic leadership in the chamber blocked a resolution by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to investigate the federal agency and fire all people responsible for improperly targeti...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Senate Democrats placed a hold on Sen. Rand Paul's recent resolution that condemns the targeting of Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and calls for an investigation into this practice.

WASHINGTON -- While many Senate Democrats said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) raised legitimate concerns about the Obama administration's drone program during his epic filibuster of John Brennan's nomination as CIA director, most of them were unable to explain why they didn't join him on the Senate floor. S...
Senate Democrats' push Wednesday for speedy confirmation of John Brennan's nomination to be CIA director ran into a snag when GOP Sen. Rand Paul began a lengthy speech over the legality of potential drone strikes on U.S. soil.
When Hillary Clinton was unanimously confirmed as Secretary of State four years ago, I thought, OH, COME ON. I could not accept the entire U.S. Senate, much less my 2 senators from the great state of Texas, saying yes we want this person to hold such a position. Now she is leaving with civil war in Syria, stalled nuclear negotiations with Iran, our relations with Russia crap, the Middle East going all to *** and still no answers for what happened to our people in Benghazi. Job well done, Clinton. So now the President is into round 2, John Kerry is stepping up to the plate, and oh look, it's time for the Republicans in the Senate to play nice. 45 members of the Senate are in the GOP and only 3 of them said no to Kerry. While Republican rising stars and Tea Party favorites like Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky joined Senate Democrats in approving Mr. Flip Flopper on funding for our troops in combat, from Taxachusetts, Sen. Inhofe of Oklahoma joined the Texas Delegation, Senators Cornyn & C . ...

Rand Paul Threatens Filibuster Over Indefinite Detention November 26, 2012 Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is bringing a new — and more aggressive — approach to a longstanding debate over the Defense authorization bill, threatening to filibuster the bill to get a vote on his amendment limiting indefinite detention. Paul’s amendment takes a new tack to curb the military’s ability to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism by affirming they have the right to a speedy trial by jury under the Sixth Amendment. His push to change the indefinite detention laws for U.S. citizens follows a contentious fight last year where liberal Senate Democrats waged an unsuccessful attempt to scale back the detention laws before an 11th-hour, watered-down compromise was ultimately reached.
*Suzanne Noel Rand Paul's bill to cut off aid to Libya, Pakistan, and Egypt fails in the senate. * Democrats INSIST on giving away YOUR money no matter who it is to! Even people that hate you. Why can't we keep our own money? Why must it be given away at any cost?
Opposing Unconstitutional Wars By Sen. Rand Paul Much has been speculated and written since my endorsement of Mitt Romney for president. Many in the liberty movement and my longtime supporters wondered if, as a result of endorsing someone for office, I would stand up to them when they went astray. The question to me is as strange as the answer is simple: Yes, strongly. Every time. I have always done what I believe and I have never been blinded by party. In my time in the United States Senate, I have opposed the USA Patriot Act, voted against the NDAA over indefinite detention, fought to end mandatory minimum drug sentences, and voted against my party’s official budget because it didn’t cut enough spending. I introduced a resolution against an unconstitutional war in Libya, and tried to repeal the authorization for the unconstitutional war before that in Iraq. I don’t believe any fair look at my record will show blind partisanship — or partisanship of any kind. I have worked with Senate Democrats o ...
"Senate Democrats should give back their salary because they are not showing up for work" - Rand Paul
Zero Votes for Obama's Budget Last week, Senate Republicans tried to get Harry Reid and his Democratic majority to do something they haven't done in more than three years: pass a budget. Tea Party-backed Senators Pat Toomey, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee all introduced fiscally conservative budget proposals that were voted down by the Democrats. Senate Democrats have refused to submit their own budget, but Republicans did manage to force a vote on President Obama's budget proposal. "President Obama’s budget proposal, S.Con Res. 41, was introduced by Senator Sessions of Alabama in order to give the Democrats a chance to vote on the President's plan to dramatically raise spending and taxes," commented Max Pappas, FreedomWorks Vice President of Government Affairs and Public Policy. "Unsurprisingly, the Obama budget received zero votes from either party, as it is absurdly unsustainable and indefensible."
A budget offered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) failed 16-to-83. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) offered a budget, but it fared no better, losing 17-to-82. A plan modeled after House Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) proposal failed 41-to-58. Senator Pat Toomey's budget (R-PA) got the most votes, but still came up short on a 42-to-57 vote. You will notice these are all Republican proposals, yet Democrats control the majority in the Senate. Where was the Democrat budget? For the third year in a row, Senate Democrats have refused to produce a budget. So Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, decided to put President Obama's 2013 budget proposal on the floor. It failed 0-to-99. That's not a typo. Not one single Democrat was willing to vote for Barack Obama's tax-hiking, big-spending budget. And this isn't the first time. Earlier this year, Obama's budget was defeated 0-to-414 in the House. And last year, the Senate voted 0-to-97 against Obama's 2012 budget. If members of Ob ...
Unfortunately, Rand Paul's budget proposal to the US Senate received only 16 votes today. But, that's 16 MORE votes than the President's budget proposal received today (yes, it was voted down 99-0). The Senate Democrats didn't even offer up a budget proposal. Pitiful bunch.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the U.S. Senate voted on several budget resolutions including one introduced by Sen. Rand Paul. Also known as A Platform to Revitalize America, Sen. Paul's resolution would balance the federal budget in five years, reform entitlement programs, and fix the tax system. Though...
