Rand’s Plan to Permanently End Shutdowns
Article from Town Hall by Katie Pavlich.
Republican Senator Rand Paul has reintroduced legislation to end government shutdowns…forever.
The Government Shutdown Prevention Act doesn’t allow the government to shut down. Instead, it automatically cuts spending should lawmakers fail to come to an agreement over government funding.
“No matter where one stands on the debate over government spending, we should all be able to agree that Congress needs to handle Americans’ money thoughtfully and hit its deadlines. The Government Shutdown Prevention Act would take a major step forward toward bringing basic fiscal responsibility to Capitol Hill,” Paul released in a statement.

The Government Shutdown Prevention Act!
What a concept. Imagine ending government shutdowns and asking Congress to handle taxpayers’ money with more consideration. That’s such advanced thinking I wonder if Rand Paul will be expelled from the Senate for casting aspersions on our current idiotic and corrupt mess.
Rand always has a lot of great ideas. BUT NONE EVERY GET DONE.
To Senator Rand Paul , I have a better suggestion . Propose a bill that would stop pay to all of congress during a shut-down. I am sure this would keep politicians in Washington negotiating instead of vacationing in Hawaii, or jukits to Puerto Rico for fund raising.
Wow. In 25 years we could be debt free as a nation.
