The government has come to a screeching halt over 5.7 billion in wall funding.
Rand Paul thinks he knows where we can find it.
GOP Sen. @RandPaul on the government shutdown over border wall funding: “Right now we’re spending $50 billion a year in Afghanistan. We could easily find $5 billion for a wall if we weren’t so busy building and rebuilding Afghanistan.” #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/9KD7eGUY5n

Yup. Knowing what I know I’m NOT AT ALL suprised by this. Rand has been pretty open about his desire to pull out of foreign wars.
You may be (slightly) more interested in who’s agreeing with him:
Solid point. https://t.co/p6jb2VFuCw

It’s definitely a solid point. Should we be rebuilding a nation if we can’t defend our own?
