 Paul to serve as top Republican on Senate oversight committee 
by Alexander Bolton - 11/17/22 10:59 AM ET

Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) announced Thursday that he will take over as the top Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee next year, opting not to become the ranking member on the Senate Health Committee, where he also serves as a senior member. 

The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is the Senate’s chief oversight committee, which will give Paul broad jurisdiction over federal departments and agencies. 

Had Republicans won the Senate majority in last week’s elections, Paul could have spearheaded Senate investigations of the Biden administration. 

The committee has authority to receive referrals on all legislation related to the national archives, the census, the federal civil service, the organization of the executive branch and the U.S. Postal Service. 

“The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s mission of oversight and investigations is critical to Congress reasserting itself, and as ranking member, I look forward to continuing the storied history of this committee’s leadership in consequential bipartisan oversight and investigations,” Paul said in a statement. 

“Given the committee’s duty to conduct oversight over the entire government, I remain hopeful that we will pursue a robust and bipartisan investigation into the origins of COVID,” he said.

If Warnock wins his Senate race, there will be two more Democrat Senators added to each Senate Committee (or 1 more Dem and 1 less Republican).
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

This is a good thing. Paul is very much needed.
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
    I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

So,nothing is going to get done other than press releases?

I respect Rand Paul's honestly, but the janitor there gets more respect and cooperation.
