Simply stated...

Ron Paul does not believe in unilateral budgetary disarmament. He'll put in his 2 cents worth of pet projects for his district and then down vote the entire package-- the idea is that if ANYONE gets money back EVERYONE should get money back.

Since Paul has had little luck convincing his addle brained coworkers to give that money back by slimming down the tax code he uses the only option at his disposal.

Paul isn't stupid; while he may be an idealist (a quality I admire him for) he is pragmatic.
