Rand Paul Calls Report Saying He’ll Vote Against GOP Tax Plan ‘Fake News’

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took to Twitter to call reports that he was questioning his support of the Republican-backed tax plan “fake news,” after Paul tweeted remarks noting his concern over the national debt earlier in the day on Tuesday.

The Street reported, on Tuesday:

“Sen. Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, raised questions about how he will vote on the Republican-backed tax plan by tweeting he “cannot in good conscience vote to add more to the already massive $20 trillion debt.”

“It wasn’t clear whether Paul’s tweet referred to the tax bill that Congress is considering, which is estimated by the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation to add more than $1 trillion to the national debt over the next 10 years, or to a spending bill that has to be passed by Dec. 22 to keep the government running.”

Paul took to Twitter after his initial statement caused confusion to express his support for the Republican tax reform plan, blasting as “fake news” reports that said otherwise.
