Rand Paul after the Kentucky Republican voted against a bill that would reauthorize a fund that compensates victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The Kentucky senator also voted against the bill this week, which passed in the Senate by a 97-2 vote. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also voted against it.
