Paul: Deficit Spending No Better Under Republicans


Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday slammed deficit spending under congressional Republicans, saying it’s no better than the spending he adamantly opposed under former President Obama.

“Well you know I think we should draw attention to the fact that we’re spending so much money. I ran for office in 2010 with what was called sort of the Tea Party tidal wave,” Paul told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“At that point we were very, very critical of President Obama’s deficits, you know, approaching a trillion dollars in a year. We talked endlessly about them we had 100,000 people rally on the [National] Mall in Washington. And I’m still against deficit spending; just because Republicans are doing it, doesn’t make it any better.”
