The GOP in-fighting continues — with two of the most well-known Senators on the right getting into a testy skirmish Tuesday over the subject of tax reform.
Rand Paul (R-KY) opened the sniping by accusing Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John McCain (R-AZ) of “torpedoing the budget.”
Senators McCain and Graham are torpedoing the budget by insisting on busting the budget caps for more spending.

Graham promptly fired back.
Getting more bad info @RandPaul.
Don’t screw up #TaxReform now.
— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) October 17, 2017
Speaking later with reporters on Capitol Hill (in comments reported via NBC’s Frank Thorp), Graham said he believes Graham is “looking to vote no” on tax reform.
“This is a subterfuge by Senator [Paul],” Graham said. “Senator Paul can’t vote yes on anything because it’s never good enough.”
The GOP civil war continues.
