Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) says no one in Congress read the $1 trillion spending bill that passed last week.

According to The Hill:

“It was over a trillion dollars, it was all lumped together, 2,242 pages, nobody read it, so frankly my biggest complaint is that I have no idea what kind of things they stuck in the bill,” Paul told host John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York’s AM-970.
“I voted against it because I won’t vote for these enormous bills that no one has a chance to read,” he added.
“We were given it yesterday or the day before the bill came forward, and so this is not a way to run government. It’s a part of the reason why government is broke.”
