Not every Republican is wussing out on the debt limit. Rand Paul isn’t.
Senator Rand Paul says he plans to vote against raising the nation’s debt limit as leverage to force the White House into budget reform…
“I’m not in favor of raising the debt ceiling unless we have significant budgetary reform which shows we have changed our ways and we’re going to begin to balance the budget,” Paul said.
Rand Paul says President Obama’s refusal to negotiate over the debt ceiling simply means he’s not going to reduce spending or the government.
“I don’t think the President is accurate when he says, ‘Oh, we have to pay our bills’ because raising the debt ceiling doesn’t pay your bills. It pays the interest on your bills and you keep accumulating more,” Paul said.
