WASHINGTON, D.C. – [TODAY] Wednesday, July 31, the U.S. Senate will proceed to a vote on Amendment No. 1739, which was introduced by Sen. Rand Paul. The vote will occur mid-morning, though an exact time is yet to be determined.

The amendment eliminates military foreign assistance to Egypt based upon current law, which prohibits the United States from providing foreign assistance to nations that experience a military coups d’état. That money would be redirected to the “Bridges in Critical Corridors” fund in S.1243.

“We tell other countries to follow the rule of law, yet our own Administration fails to do so. Sending money to Egypt under their current military coups is illegal,” Sen. Paul said. “Instead of illegally sending that money overseas, we are better off spending that money at home.”

Things are worse now than when the whole 'revolution'

thing started: Just goes to show how insane most of the Senate is.

McCain appears in the foreground at 15:55, the devil himself.

These 86 Senators should be removed from office.

AWESOME SPEECH RAND!!!

THIS is why I sent money for his senate campaign.

THIS is why.

I love watching McCain and Graham squirm when the TRUTH is told on the senate floor.

This is what worries me about Rand...

So, is Rand advocating free handouts and gov't bailouts for Detroit? He keeps condemning financial aid to Egypt, which I totally agree with, but it's almost like he's advocating federal money to be handed out within our borders instead of overseas and that worries me.

Tax dollars to repair our

Tax dollars to repair our infrastructure is a good thing.

Even Federal Dollars?

I know sometimes it can be used for good (i.e., the construction of the interstate system) but I'm very skeptical of federal money being used in general for an individual state's purpose.

I think he was just making a

I think he was just making a point about how Detroit was faltering and our very own infrastructure is crumbling but we send billions to other countries.Most people can agree that the money is better spent at home.

Too much common sense from Rand here.

I'm all for sending the personal wealth of every Senator to Egypt that voted to table Rand's amendment. You'd think if Mitch voted with Rand that more Repulicans would have voted with them.

"Gold is the money of kings; silver is the money of gentlemen; barter is the money of peasants; but debt is the money of slaves."

That speech

was really kick ass.

Rand Paul at his best. He is bringing the A game. By the time he is ready to run, there are going to be many speeches ripe for grassroots videos.

I really believe he has the power to unite the country and lead it.

Rand continues to stand up for the rules and protect our rights.

I love that McConnell has to vote with Rand in order to get that 2014 endorsement from Paul. It makes Paul the mos powerful Republican in the Senate.
