I take spending and balanced budgets seriously. I’ve never voted for a budget that didn’t balance. Since it appears one is not being offered this year, and since our deficits and debt are spiraling out of control, I decided to offer my own. Adding to massive debt isn’t what I signed up for — and it isn’t what people voted for.

The people expected the GOP to keep its word and work to rein in spending, shrink government, and cut the deficit. They expected us to put forward a plan to BALANCE THE BUDGET like we said we would.

“Senator Paul’s budget resolution would balance the federal budget in five years, forcing real discussion and debate about America’s priorities. The budget resolution would also put teeth in the budget enforcement mechanisms and bring about a more transparent and effective budget process that would help reduce waste and duplication.”

April 15th is known by most as Tax Day. But it also marks a day of significance in the federal budget process. The Congressional Budget and Impoundment Act of 1974 sets April 15th as the deadline for Congress to pass its annual budget resolution. The consequences for tax delinquents are penalties, l...

Today, the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on our policy in Yemen. I had a few things to say.

This year on tax day, I say let’s pick up the fight again. Let’s keep fighting for smaller, constitutional government. Congress will be forced to vote on my balanced budget plan in the coming days. I hope they’ll show some fiscal sanity for a change.

We can and must fight against terrorism when it rears its ugly head. We can do that in a smarter, constitutional way, and President Trump can lead our country in a new direction, as he seems to want to do. But he'll have to stop listening to the people who caused so many problems and so much death and destruction over the past 17 years if he wants to make his goals reality.

The conflict in Syria is not our battle to fight and Trump should go back to trusting his gut on that, writes Rand Paul

My biggest concern with Mike Pompeo’s nomination is that I don't think it reflects the millions of people who voted for President Trump, who actually voted for him because they thought he'd be different, that it wouldn't be the traditional bipartisan consensus to bomb everywhere and be everywhere around the world. That’s my main concern, and I just want to make sure that that's loud and clear to everyone.
