RAND PAUL SLAMS ‘RIDICULOUS WASTE’ OF TAXPAYER MONEY BY GOVERNMENT
‘Some idiot in government’ spent $700,000 on deciphering 1969 moon landing speech… in 2017.

Rand Paul Slams 'Ridiculous Waste' Of Taxpayer Money By Government
Following his impromptu filibuster speech on Friday, Senator Rand Paul made several media appearances at the weekend to explain how insane government spending has become and how some Republicans are hypocritically supporting it.

Speaking on New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” Paul slammed the “ridiculous” amounts of money being wasted by government.



“I can give you a quick example of some of the stuff we spend money on,” Paul told host John Catsimatidis.

“We spent $700,000 last year studying what Neil Armstrong said when he landed on the moon,” Paul explained.

“You remember, he said, ‘One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’ Well, some idiot in government took $700,000 of taxpayer money and wanted to know whether he said, ‘One small step for man’ or,’One small step for a man.’ So that’s the kind of stuff your government is spending money on.” The Senator urged.

Paul called for the Pentagon to be audited to find out where vast amounts of money is disappearing to.

“Before we give them more money, make them account for the money they’re already spending,” he told listeners.

In a further appearance on CBS’ Face The Nation, Paul called out GOP representatives for being “hypocritical” in passing both tax cuts and spending increases.

“I think if you’re for tax cuts and for increasing spending that’s hypocritical. But if you’re for tax cuts and you’re also for cutting spending a corresponding amount — see, I would offset the tax cuts with spending cuts, and there are a few of us that would actually do that,” Paul explained.

“I voted for the tax cuts and I voted for spending cuts. The people who voted for tax cuts and spending increases — I think there is some hypocrisy there and it shows they’re not serious about the debt,” he continued.

“I’m still against deficit spending just because Republicans are doing it doesn’t make it any better,” he added.

The Senator also revealed that he is “very worried” about large scale increases in military spending.

“I think one of the questions the Republicans, I think, are not willing to ask themselves is, can you be fiscally conservative and be for unlimited military spending?” Paul noted.

Paul claimed that the GOP is “unwilling to confront that they want more, more, more for military spending and so to get that they have to give the Democrats what they want, which is more and more and more for domestic spending. ”

Senator Paul also argued that the military’s involvement abroad is “beyond what we need to be.”

“We’re actively in war in about seven countries, and yet the Congress hasn’t voted on declaring or authorizing the use of military force in over 15 years now,” Paul said.

“We’re spending 50 billion dollars a year. And if the president really is serious about infrastructure, a lot of that money could be spent at home. Instead of building bridges and schools and roads in Afghanistan or in Pakistan.” he added.

A hypocrite who's not serious about the debt?

Duh.

Who could that be?

You didn't pay attention, I've always been a deficit hawk.

Running deficits is snowballing the can down the road.

But Tea Partiers want a budget balanced at the expense of the weakest.

Something I believe always comes at the cost of future upheavals.

Impossible.

Whatever waste Paul would nix would be peanuts compared to tax cuts + great works.

Trump is thinking of cutting into Medicare.

Taking from the poor to give tax cuts to the rich.

Your Manchurian imbecile is paving the way for a Warren/Sanders presidency.

Looks like Putin has succeeded in weakening the U.S. in a durable way.

Under your cheers, Fryer.

"The Senator also revealed that he is “very worried” about large scale increases in military spending."

You can now that America has been taken off the world stage, cut defence spending by half. You'd still have the largest defence spending in the world by a long way but would save 0ver $300 Billion per year. You'd be just as secure, probably more so, and the savings would more than offset the tax cuts.

It's what politicians the word over say and it never ever works.

there's never waste to the level of massive measures like Trump's Tax Bill.

Some, sure, never that big. To save, you've got to cut in the meat. Like Medicare.

Back to taking from the poor to finance tax cuts for the very educated elite.

Trump only cares for people who read books.

Don't misunderstand me, Fryer. Never would I say it's not possible.

But that's cutting $3 trillion in services to the fat opiod addicted poor (often Trump voters)

to finance better profits to the educated elite which owns stocks + reducing their income tax.

Trump is a Russian agent who only cares for the very educated Wall Street elite.

Not really likely as the latest budget will double the annual deficit. It might be doable but they're already heading in the wrong direction. With full employment and the economy near capacity doubling the deficit is ridiculous. They should be cutting it, not growing it. What happens when the economy takes a dive? And it will. You can't, despite what Gordon Brown claimed, stop the economic cycle.

If anyone here was a real 'Conservative', or -shudders- a Tea Partier, you could answer.

But you can't and you won't.

Because it would hurt your frail egoes too much to admit it: Trump is a fraud.

The Trumpists will come up with an answer if they haven't already. They'll call it alternative economics. They've changed the paradigm of conventional economics, so everything is going to be alright.

But he has cut billions in waste and redundancy . IT aint rocket science either snapperheads , lower taxes ,less regulation, Increased productivity, and consumer spending have historically resulted in more money flowing into the treasury.

I can't tell if you're trolling or if you've become a true believer.

It's not that he's not going to balance the budget in his first year, he's not planning to. Ever.

Neither did he say that he would double the deficit in his first year. But that is what he did. No one expected the deficit to double at a time with the economy running at or near full capacity. Anyway, he implied it when he said that he would eliminate the national debt within 8 years. No one would seriously expect debt to fall when you're actually increasing debt by doubling the deficit.

Not that he has a cat in hells chance of eliminating the debt even if he tried.

"Spending Cuts or Economic Growth Wouldn’t Do It

Gross debt (currently $19 trillion) will reach nearly $28 trillion by the end of 2025.2 To save that much money would require cutting all spending by two-thirds or achieving 16 percent real annual economic growth; growth is currently projected to average 2.1 percent.

Excluding Social Security – which Mr. Trump has said he would not significantly change – the rest of government would need to be cut by 93 percent.

Donald Trump has also proposed over $10 trillion of tax cuts and spending increases through 2025. Incorporating these, spending would have to be cut about 90 percent and the economy would have to grow more than 20 percent per year."
