Rand Paul: $32 Billion in Spending Cuts Doesn’t Cut It

By    |   Friday, 04 Feb 2011 04:22 PM

When House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan put forth the Republican plan to cut spending through the end of the fiscal year by $32 billion, many scoffed, as that figure equals only 2 percent of the projected $1.5 trillion deficit. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is one of the skeptics, The Hill reports.

"It's really not going to touch the problem," Paul said Friday in an interview with ABC news.

"There's a disconnect between Republicans who want a balanced budget but aren't maybe yet brave enough to talk about the cuts to come," Paul added.
 
The tea party-backed freshman has suggested cutting spending by $500 billion this fiscal year, more than 10 times the House GOP total.
 
Another skeptic is Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.

“Anything short of our pledge to cut $100 billion from fiscal year 2011 will be getting off on the wrong foot,” Flake says.
