As Twitchy reported earlier, Sen. Rand Paul had finally finished printing the 2,232 pages of the omnibus spending bill and began tweeting his objections starting with page 207 — $6 billion to the “ever wasteful” National Science Foundation.
Paul made it through 600 pages Thursday before giving up:
I shared 600 pages tonight. I’m done tweeting them for the evening. If they insist on voting, I will vote no because it spends to much and there’s just too little time to read the bill and let everyone know what’s actually in it.
Thanks for sticking with me.

Uh-oh; if Paul is going to vote no, that might mean a repeat of February, when Paul kept everyone up until the wee hours by stalling a bipartisan budget deal reached by Sens. Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell.
Slate is on it:
