Congress

Rand Paul to Fight Linking Harvey Relief Funding and Debt Ceiling with ‘America First’ Amendment

Published

on

On Wednesday, the House will be passing a clean funding bill for Harvey relief and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to add an increase in the debt ceiling to the bill. A source has confirmed to Big League Politics that Senator Rand Paul will be fighting the effort.

Paul will be doing two things to throw a wrench in McConnell and Paul Ryan’s plans to marry the issues.

First, Paul plans to push for an ‘America First’ amendment which would cover the $7.85 billion Harvey relief funding through foreign aid cuts. In theory, the debt ceiling will still need to be raised soon, but not in conjunction with the FEMA relief funds if the money is offset with budget cuts.

“It’s a mistake to raise the debt ceiling without having some dramatic reform to our budget process,” Paul told Politico on Tuesday. “A $20 trillion debt is really our no. 1 security risk so to just keep raising the debt I think is a huge mistake.”

The senator added that “if you are simply adding to the debt to give people money I think it’s not really appropriate,” explaining that the costs should be offset from elsewhere.

Second, the Kentucky senator will be fighting for the debt ceiling and the Harvey bill to be split so that senate will have to vote on and debate the issues separately.

With FEMA saying that they will be out of funds by Friday, pressure is on for a funding bill to be passed quickly. By attaching the two issues, senators will be forced to either pass funding with the changes to the debt ceiling or be responsible for not providing aid money to the devastated areas in time.

Obviously, the disaster relief funding on its own has overwhelming bipartisan support and would easily pass, but Paul Ryan and McConnell appear to be determined to complicate things by adding the politically charged debt ceiling legislation to an otherwise easy vote.

Multiple members of the Freedom Caucus have also made it clear that they will be forced into not backing the package if it doesn’t include meaningful fiscal reforms.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Brutalizes Ilhan Omar in Devastating Tweets Over Her Illicit Brother Marriage

Greene is the fighter conservatives have been looking for.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has not even been officially sworn into Congress yet, but she is already taking the fight to “The Squad” in ways that other Republicans would never dream.

The spat began after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) took potshots at Sen. Kelly Loeffler (D-GA), the patriotic who is fighting to keep her post as U.S. Senator during a run-off election in a state marred with unprecedented electoral irregularities.

Loeffler refused to take Omar’s abuse laying down:

Which prompted a weak reply from Omar:

This is when Greene showed up with the heavy artillery to back up Loeffler and put Omar in her place:

Omar responded by referring to Greene as “looney” for her supposed association with the QAnon movement, which has been targeted by Big Tech platforms.

Greene clapped back by putting Omar in her place, letting her know that her backward customs are not normal in the United States:

Big League Politics has reported on the political establishment’s outrage after Greene has her sights on Omar and the “Squad” that wants to destroy the American Republic and replace it with totalitarian socialism:

Facebook has censored a political advertisement from Congressional contender Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia after anti-American socialist Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was triggered by its contents.

Omar made a post about Greene’s ad, which featured a “scary looking” AR-15 rifle. The supposedly empowered feminist woman could not handle seeing the gun and demanded that her precious little feelings be protected by tech overlords as a result of her weakness…

It’s worth noting that Facebook’s representative who tweeted that the post had been censored is a Democrat operative who formerly worked for the both Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Democrats’ PAC…

The supposedly offensive campaign ad, which is said to be threatening by gaslighting leftists because Greene is holding an AR-15, can be seen here…

Another one of her campaign ads were censored by Facebook before she won her primary election. She said she was locked and loaded and ready for ANTIFA terrorists if they came to Northwest Georgia.

“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

Greene is the prototypical candidate of the Trump-led GOP. This is why the political establishments of both major parties are uniting in an attempt to stop her from being a Congresswoman.

The American republic will not be surrendered on Greene’s watch.
