@RandPaul was so right in just mentioning the changing demographics behind social security from 16 workers per retiree to 3, does not work.
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn sounds a little predisposed to the idea of war. With four boys, I don't get it.
Look forward to joining @TedCruz this Friday in Mount Pleasant to kick off his #CruzCountry Bus Tour... ow.ly/Qw7ZH
Today filing closed for this year's elections...
I filed for reelection in the 1st District of South Carolina and I wanted to write and ask for your vote, support, help and even prayers.
I believe our country really is at a pivotal point in its history, and that if we do not turn back the tide of more government and more government spending profound problems are coming our way. Accordingly, I am running because of my continued concern over our country’s financial future and the vital importance of preserving liberty and opportunity in the American system.
In Washington, our office has continued to work to cut spending, shrink government and indeed protect liberty. I believe it's for this reason that the National Taxpayers Union has ranked me in the top 1% in Congress for efforts to protect the taxpayer. It’s certainly why I have voted against things like the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 which suspended the debt limit and authorized an additional $80 billion in spending.
I have tried as well to listen well and represent the viewpoint of people at home - and we have done that in a variety of ways whether in our work to conserve resources, in expanding freedom or in working to bring common sense conservative ideas to Washington.
With your support and the help of friends, I hope to continue representing the taxpayer’s view in Washington and work to turn back the federal government’s runaway spending. I can't do it on my own though, so again, I would be most honored if you would help us. I ask for your vote. I ask for your prayers. If you are able to help in volunteering or in financing a part of the campaign effort I would really appreciate that too.
Think on what you can do and please join us.
Lowcountry Listening Tour continues today ow.ly/QCe18
Then 1pm I'll be w/ @TedCruz to kickoff #CruzCountry Bus Tour in #mtpsc
Well the budget didn't come up, but @RandPaul did just mention it in his closing remarks - kudos for his willingness to filibuster tomorrow.
