Will Paul Filibuster the CR?
“Ask me tomorrow,” he says:
Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) on Wednesday declined to say what his plans are for a vote in the Senate on a bill to keep the government funded for the remainder of fiscal 2011. “Ask me tomorrow,” Paul said when asked whether he plans to filibuster the budget measure, which could be voted on as early as Thursday. The deal is the result of negotiations between House Republicans and Senate Democrats that includes almost $39 billion of spending cuts, the most in U.S. history.
