Rand Paul Blocks Senate From Approving 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund

2

Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday blocked an attempt by Democrats to pass an extension of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tried to win the Senate’s consent to approve the House-passed bill, which would reauthorize funding until fiscal 2090. The bill cleared the House in a 402-12 vote last week.

But Paul objected, pointing to the country’s growing debt and arguing that any new spending should be offset by cuts to other spending.

He added that if the House bill was brought up for a vote in the Senate he is planning to offer an amendment, “but until then I will object.”

  1. The government confiscated $10 Trillion dollars from the person behind 9/11 after he was executed. Let the compensation be taken from that money.

  2. I fail to understand the reasoning of this this guy; namely, Senator Rand Paul, M.D.!!
    He is a graduate of the prestigious Duke University School of Medicine; a licensed Physician, & a medical specialist, Ophthalmologist, to boot. And, the Son of a Physician; former Congressman Ron Paul, M.D.
    Seems to have no compassion for the suffering & the urgent medical needs of fellow human beings; in this case ‘First Responders’ no less. Not to mention, the Hippocratic Oath, to which he is bound.
    A Goy! We Jews are: “Rachmonim b’nei Rachmonim.
