The junior Senator from Kentucky voted NO or obstructed :
a. The Veterans Job Corps Bill (S. 3457) to provide job training and related benefits to veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Passage of the 2022 PACT Act to provide medical care, including mental health services and counseling, to veterans who were exposed to toxic burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan.
b. The Bring Jobs Home Act (S. 3364), that would cut taxes on U.S. companies that return jobs and their operations back to the U.S. from overseas.
c. The September 11th Compensation Fund for First Responders.
d. The Iron Dome Supplemental Appropriations HR 5323 to provide Israel with $1 billion to replenish its Iron Dome missile defense system, and the the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018.
But wait, there is more:
> Kentucky’s junior Senator introduced a bill, S. 2359, that invited every terrorist and ‘tourist’ to carry any firearms to the U.S. Capitol (even non-U.S. citizens and persons under observation for mental illness). It required a person “not a United States citizen” to provide “his or her alien or admission number.” The Senate refused to even give his bill a vote.
> The junior Senator proposed a bill that would have prevented our border patrol agents from accessing data on the phones, laptops and other digital devices of terrorists entering the United States. S. 2957-117th.
> Rand Paul wanted to “de-militarize” [a word meaning defund] our local law enforcement officers. The junior Senator’s proposed bill, S. 3931-116th, would have prohibited “any transfer” of “Weapons, weapon parts, and weapon components, including camouflage and deception equipment, and optical sights. military-grade equipment to federal, state, and local agencies for law enforcement activities.”
