Senator Rand Paul proposed legislation that would have cut aid to countries that are hostile to the United States. The $9 billion would have instead been used to aid in Hurricane Sandy recovery.
The Catholic Relief Services took umbrage at Paul's common-sense initiative and urged the Senate to defeat it. The Reid-led cabal did so, by a 91-3 vote (obviously some RINOs were swayed, but that's another post).
Giddy from their "victory for kindness and truth, justice and peace", the CRS issued a gushing press release thanking the Senate for the defeat of common sense.
Did I ever mention that I think the USCCB should be abolished??
