Paul took to the Senate floor Thursday evening, armed with charts and graphs that pointed to what he says is wasteful government spending.
The agreement raises federal budget caps for two years with the increase divided nearly equally between defense and domestic spending.
But the libertarian, failed 2016 GOP presidential contender and "wacko bird" - a moniker an angry Sen.
Negotiated by McConnell, Schumer, and other leaders of both parties, the agreement gives Congress six weeks to appropriate funds that are in line with spending levels set forth in the deal. That would put the Senate vote no earlier than about 2:30 a.m.
"I didn't come up here to be part of somebody's club".
It all comes down to a Senate procedure, which allows Sen.
"I think we're going to be fine", Ryan said in a radio interview about the upcoming vote. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., said on the Senate floor.
Salma Hayek "Felt Ashamed" for Not Speaking Out About Harvey Weinstein Earlier

Sen. Rand Paul called out his fellow Republicans for "hypocrisy" in their budget plan after the GOP criticized President Barack Obama for adding to the United States deficit during his time in office. The federal Office of Management and Budget told federal agencies to plan for a "limited shutdown" of perhaps a few hours. Pelosi and other top Democrats say they want to force Republicans to agree to legal protections for DREAMers, including the roughly 700,000 immigrants who are in the US illegally after being brought to the country as children and who are enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Flake said in a statement that "fiscal responsibility is more than a talking point to trot out when the other guys are in charge".
"This spending bill is a debt junkie's dream", Republican legislator Mo Brooks said, as reported by the Washington Post this week.
The whole process could take several hours, and the government is funded only until midnight Thursday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., filed a motion to end debate on the budget deal late Wednesday night.
"I will make them listen to me", Paul said.
Some House Democrats, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, plan to vote no on the bill because it doesn't include a permanent solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration program. "But I would argue that it is time to vote".
UN Security Council to take up Maldives crisis
New Dehli said it was considering a "full range of options", including "tough measures" against Yameen's government. By Tuesday evening, the capital, Malé, was calm, with shops open and traffic circulating, but fear hung in the air.
Paul came to the Senate in 2009 after defeating a GOP primary opponent that McConnell had actively supported. Porter was working for the president with an interim clearance.
"We get along fine", Paul told reporters Thursday.
Much like Paul, many House Republicans are concerned about the bill's projected effect on the deficit.
"I think it will all work out". He's opposed indefinite detention of terror suspects by the military, backed President Barack Obama's restoration of relations with Cuba and waged an 11-hour filibuster in 2015 against renewing a law on government surveillance.
Trump has offered to give the Dreamers protection from deportation and a pathway to citizenship over 10 to 12 years, but he wants in exchange $25 billion to fund his proposed US-Mexico border wall and tighter restrictions on legal immigration.
"We'll see. If they want to stay up until 3:00 a.m., I'm happy to do it for the fiscal solvency", he said.

These chemicals could so far have been "an insufficiently considered factor in the models", said Ball. They discovered that the amount of ozone in the lower stratosphere was still decreasing.
