In 2011, Paul’s first year in the Senate, he was among 38 Republicans voting against a major FEMA funding package despite the fact -- not lost upon publicintegrity.org -- that his own state of Kentucky had been the nation’s largest recipient of FEMA funding ($293 million), mostly because of a 2009 ice storm.
In 2013, Paul was one of 31 Republican senators who voted against a $50.5 billion relief aid package for Hurricane Sandy -- “after previously okaying disaster aid for their home states,” as reported by ThinkProgress.org.
In 2017, Paul was one of just 17 senators to oppose an emergency $15.3 billion federal relief bill for victims of Hurricane Harvey. It had wreaked havoc similar to Friday’s tornado, but not in Kentucky.
Paul didn't want to raise the federal debt to help his fellow countrymen and demanded offsets in some other government programs before funding these and all other disaster programs in the last ten years.
"They say we are out of money to pay for hurricane relief. So instead of finding that money somewhere else in the budget, they simply want to raise the limit on our credit card," he wrote. "This has to stop. We spend too much. We owe too much. We cannot keep spending money we do not have."
Funny, he doesn't have a problem with getting that money now, offsets be damned. The grinch wants a hand out.
Hypocritical politicians are always a good laugh. The man is completely devoid of ethics and intellectual integrity. More on the story here.
