    Just because it wasn't /isn't reported doesn't mean it didn't / doesn't happen.

    Wow.... just wow.

    Those pesky checks & balances can be so cumbersome.

    That while the Democrats were restricting him it was the Republicans, his own party, that did not allow him to do anything

    That's not true. Paul filibustered the bill, by himself, until he was allowed to add amendments to the bill and that they would be voted on. The republicans do not control Paul, they are afraid of him. The democrats and most republicans in the Senate are big gov't progressives and Paul is exposing them as such.

    So in my opinion, it's not Paul's predicament, it's the Senate GOP's predicament. Give 'em hell Senator Paul!!
