“I just don’t think it’s useful to be doing investigation after investigation, particularly of your own party,..we’ll never even get started with doing the things we need to do like repealing Obamacare if we’re spending our whole time having Republicans investigate Republicans. I think it makes no sense.”
Rand Paul just outed himself. As a US Senator he puts Republicans before country. To him it makes no sense to investigate the first president who is possibly guilty of treasonous collusion with a foreign leader–Vladimir Putin of Russia–as a presidential candidate and president-elect for personal gain and to avoid being blackmailed. But it makes perfect sense to deprive 20 million Americans–many of them families too poor to afford healthcare and adults with pre-existing conditions which made them lepers to health insurance corporations.
So Paul is on record as being out there. Solely out there in the Senate for his political party and not for his constituents, his country, and the US Constitution. That’s pretty short-sighted for a guy who used to be an ophthalmologist, don’t you think? And the tragic irony in all of this is that Kentucky voters likely to continue to be as self-centered and myopic as Paul when he runs for reelection.
