Early Friday morning, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to pass Senate leadership’s budget-busting spending deal:

“Tonight, you could feel the frustration and embarrassment growing in Congress as we exposed the hypocrisy of Republicans who are joining in an unholy alliance and spending free-for-all with Democrats at the expense of the American people and our party’s supposed principles. Make no mistake, I will always stand up for fiscal responsibility, regardless of which party is in power, and I will continue to call the Republican Party home to the ideas that led to Americans trusting us with government in the first place.”

Paul largely led a one man battle against this budget and the fiscal irresponsibility it clearly fosters.  While his colleagues were obsessed about avoiding a shutdown, Paul was more concerned about what this bill will do to future generations.
