Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) blocked an attempt by Democrats to pass an extension of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, The Hill reports.
“Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) tried to win the Senate’s consent to approve the House-passed bill, which would reauthorize funding until fiscal year 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.”Save to Favorites
