Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) stated during an interview with the Fox Business network’s Maria Bartiromo that Democrats in Congress and the Biden regime who are trying to get unaminous consent for an popular spending bill “couldn’t run a 7-Eleven much less the government” on Thursday.
“The Democrats have done nothing, they have not introduced a spending bill and I don’t even think it’s passed the House yet, and so they’re gonna do it on the last day,” Paul told Bartiromo. “Well, things in the senate take about a week to pass, and that’s the normal procedure around here and that includes amendments.”
Paul continued, “If they wanna force it through with no amendments and they wanna do it in a short period of time, they have to have unanimous consent. Well, a lot of us don’t consent to just because the Democrats are incompetent and haven’t brought it forward, that we should speed up time to let them spend more money that is bankrupting our country. The debt ceiling’s the same way.”

The senator concluded, “If they want to raise the debt ceiling, they oughta do it. They’ve had plenty of time to do it, this is all on Democrats. It’s their incompetence in getting anything done, these people couldn’t run a 7-Eleven, much less the government.”
Paul also slammed disgraced Biden medical advisor Anthony Fauci in the interview, stating that “Fauci should go to prison for five years for lying to Congress,” and “At the very least, he should be taken out of his position, because I think he has cost people’s lives through misinformation.”
