Senator Rand Paul took to Twitter to prove that he is reading the entire 2,200 page omnibus budget bill


Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul is a dedicated man.

He has decided that before he casts his vote on the $1.3 trillion budget bill he wants to read the entire bill ---all 2,200+ pages of it.

And to prove that he is a man of his word, Paul printed out every page and has been live tweeting out parts of the bill that he found objectionable.

On an interview on the Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Paul said, "When I ran in 2010, when we had that tea party tidal wave, we were opposed to President Obama's spending and we were opposed to Obama's trillion-dollar deficits," Paul added. "This bill will give us a trillion-dollar deficit this year."

But he assured that his goal is not to shut down the government over the spending bill.

"My goal is to say that we should be for balanced budgets, limited spending, less debt, and we should be for reading the bills," he said.

If the Senate cannot pass the $1.3 trillion spending bill by midnight Friday, the government will run out of money and shut down.

The $1.3 trillion bill would fund the government through the end of September.
