I'm not sure what's in the water in our national capitol.
Rand's best idea was to make Europe pay for its own defense for a change.
I'm not sure which idea was his worst. However, this newfound desire Rand Paul shares with Obama to make our oil companies more profitable will be paid for with US jobs and higher energy bills. US manufacturing presently has an energy cost advantage because gas is so much cheaper here than in Europe and Japan. Additional foreign demand for US gas will raise domestic prices. Putin's move will become very profitable for US energy companies. I hope US taxpayers won't have to subsidize any of this. Home heating bills will also climb.
