Of Course AynRandy Is Taking Wall Street Money

Just like his hero greedily grabbed Social Security while condemning government welfare.

Rube-gulling hypocrisy: it's the repug way.

Dawn Kopecki at Bloomberg News:

Sen. Rand Paul has preached the political peril of being too close to financiers as he gears up for a likely 2016 presidential bid.

"We cannot be the party of fat cats, rich people, and Wall Street," the Kentucky Republican told the audience at the Freedom Summit in New Hampshire in April. "Corporate welfare should once and for all be ended."  
 At the same time, the founders and employees of Mason Capital Management, a $13.6 billion New York hedge fund, have become leading contributors to Paul's political aims. The hedge fund has offices in London and San Francisco and offers clients offshore investments through a limited partnership in the Cayman Islands, among other strategies.
