Sen. Rand Paul: ‘Monstrous Spending Bill…Is Everything Republicans Say They Don’t Believe In’

December 22, 2020

Both the House and Senate on Monday passed a $2.3 trillion bill, including $900 billion in COVID relief and the rest to keep the federal government operating.

The Senate vote was 92-6, with six Republicans voting against the 5,593-page bill — dubbed by The Associated Press as “by far the longest bill ever.”

The no votes came from Sens. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Rick Scott of Florida, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah, and Ted Cruz of Texas.
