This is where the insanity comes in. The sole GOP dissenting vote on that budget bill came fromSenator Rand Paul of Kentucky. Paul and his father, Ron Paul, have been the loudest voices of dissent within the GOP on the many military actions the U.S. has been involved in since 9/11.
For this they were labeled as the crazy people in their party. The sane ones were the guys who borrowed trillions to blow things up in the Mideast, first under George W. Bush and then under Barack Obama.
Bush used those wars as an excuse to ignore his campaign promises to balance the budget. As for Obama, at least he had the excuse that as a Democrat he never made any such promises.
But between the two of them they stuck us with a giant debt with little or nothing to show for it. Mulvaney put that debt into perspective by stating “If you are an ordinary American family, the equivalent to you of a $20 trillion debt is a credit card bill of $260,000.”
