We should have known!

Rand Paul, as did Ted Cruz, will single handed shut down the government and just as they did 2013, will blame the Democrats! I don't like some of the bill, but has some good in it to benefit most?

The Creating and Restoring Equal Access to Equivalent Samples Act, known as the CREATES Act and co-sponsored by members of both parties, was rumored to be a part of budget negotiations until the final days.
