Ron Paul Opposes ‘In God We Trust’ Resolution

Friday, 04 Nov 2011 10:02 AM

Texas Rep. Ron Paul, a Republican candidate for president, told The Hill Thursday that he opposes the Republican resolution that would reaffirm "In God We Trust" as the country’s motto.

The resolution passed the House easily Wednesday, with only nine "no" votes. Paul was absent for the vote. But he said the bill was superfluous.

"I would have voted 'no' not because I don't like the motto and don't think we can use it, but 'no' because we were telling the states what to do," Paul said. The only Republican to vote against the resolution was freshman Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, who supports Paul’s presidential bid.

President Barack Obama ripped the House for the issue, rather than focusing on jobs.
