Vote for democrats.

"Conservatives" love weed, strip clubs, porn, social programs, decent paying jobs and prostitution. Then they turn around and vote AGAINST each one of them and blame the left for their misfortunes.

Weed = should be legal

Strip Clubs = should be handled at state/local level

Porn = just keep it from kids

Social Programs = depends on which ones but stop robbing Peter to pay Paul

Decent Paying Jobs = Trump is better at this than Dems

Prostitution = should be handled at state/local level

What does any of that have to do with conservatives voting against what they like?

Rand Paul is pretty consistent at opposing spending.  Its not like he hasn't worked against spending his entire career and suddenly he opposes this spending.

But he's seemingly ok with deficits. Strange that.

I think the criticism has more to do with him voting for massive tax cuts that ballooned the defecit.  He didn't care then.  If he thought tax cuts would increase revenue, he was wrong.  If he was wrong he should be reevaluating his position instead of doubling down.

He forced the tax cut bill to include a provision that it be paid for in the budge.  Republicans later passed a different amendment that removed the provision.  Rand Paul is not the one who supports deficits.  He may be the single biggest advocate for controlling deficits.

Rand Paul?  

No...wrong...  He is opposed to deficits.  

Again you are lumping all Republicans together which is not correct.

If that were the case, then he wouldn't have supported a tax cut that has ballooned the deficit.

All that's going on here is Rand Paul virtue signaling with a high profile bill saying, "Hey look, I still really care about spending, see?" But has no problem going along with other expansions of the deficit. 

It's hypocrisy of the worst kind.

Rand Paul tries to control spending on every bill.  The difference is that Jon Stewart doesnt go to congress and cry over every bill that Rand Paul tries to have spend money responsibly.

So he didn't vote for it?  My bad.  I apologize for being wrong.

And Rand rode on Stewart's coattails because he needed to show he's still a spending hawk after supporting a tax cut that ballooned the deficit.

This is purely a show and it's at the expense of 9/11 first responders. It's not going to play well.

No worries.  We are all boneheads sometimes.  image.jpg?w=1024&c=1

 

He voted for tax cuts that ballooned the deficit.  Nothing can change that. I don't care about what people say, I care about what they do.  If he is such a deficit hawk he should have voted no.

Rand Paul's own words RE: The tax cut bill:

"This tax bill is a true test for my colleagues. I’m not getting everything I want — far from it. But I’ve been immersed in this process. I’ve fought for and received major changes for the better "
- Rand Paul

"This bill is not perfect. I would prefer a larger cut. I would prefer that the Senate bill match the House bill and keep some form of state and local deductions so that no one gets caught in the trap of losing too many deductions at once and failing to benefit from the tax cuts. Lastly, I’d like to see more permanence on the individual side. Some of that is still achievable. Some of it is due to the peculiarities of the budget and Senate rules and will have to wait for another day."
- Rand Paul

"It's going to balloon the deficit but I will vote for it anyway".

Sounds like his problem with it was that it wasn't big enough.

Do you tell it like it is?  Is that just he way you are?  Do people just have to accept it?
