WASHINGTON, September 29, 2015– On Friday, the United States Senate failed to pass a short-term continuing resolution, which increased the federal deficit by $400 billion.

Of the four Republican Senators running for president, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was the only one to vote against it. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) all voted in favor of the continuing resolution moving forward by ending cloture. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is running for President on the Democratic ticket as a socialist, also voted against the continuing resolution.

Paul says that although the bill defunded Planned Parenthood, he couldn’t vote for it due to the spending that was attached.

“Since coming to Washington, I have voted against every spending bill that continues to add to our nation’s mountain of debt. Spending at the levels in this bill will add $400 billion more new debt this year. Time and time again, the President and Congress fail to do one of their most basic jobs, which is to review and adjust federal spending and fund the government. While I support all efforts to stop federal funding of Planned Parenthood, this bill is a clear representation of business as usual in Washington – too much spending and too much debt. The American people deserve better,” Paul said in a statement released after the vote.

Paul’s foes were quick to paint him as a Planned Parenthood supporter for voting against the massive spending bill. However, Paul has made several attempts to defund Planned Parenthood. In fact, he even attempted to fast-track the legislation in July.
