Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) objection to the new bipartisan budget deal is going viral, thanks to a boost on Facebook from Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah).
Lee posted a video of Sen. Paul raising his objections to the agreement prior to the Senate vote early Friday morning.
This is how it happens. Last night while you were sleeping the Senate voted to steal $150 billion dollars from the Social Security Trust Fund. I joined 34 of my colleagues in a vote to prevent this raid. I would like to thank Senator Rand Paul for leading the fight to protect to Social Security from the thieves in Washington, who seem to think that if they steal from the American people at night while they are sleeping that they will get away with it. I was proud to vote with Senator Paul on his point of order that would have protected Social Security, and I ask you to help me shine a light on what Washington has tried to hide from you in the darkness of night.
He called on Americans to share the video, arguing that “a vote to raid social security in the middle of the night in a desperate attempt to perpetuate an unsustainable spending addiction isn’t a sign of strength. It is a sign of weakness.”
