Ron Paul: Government, Deficit Always Grew Under Republican Presidents


By    |   Wednesday, 02 Mar 2016 03:15 PM

Republican lawmakers crow about America's need for limited government — but that's not the way they operate, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul tells Newsmax TV.
 
"There's a pretense that the Republican Party has always been for less government," Paul said Wednesday on "The Hard Line" with Ed Berliner.

"But any conservative or Libertarian that would look at the Republican Party for really dealing with that, they would have to be disappointed.

"Even with our very conservative presidents, Republican presidents, government always grew, the deficit always grew … The Democrats pass all these wonderful things, these handouts, but Republicans feel fiscally responsible and think we ought to balance a budget, so they raise taxes."

Paul is a two-time Republican presidential candidate and the presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party in the 1988 election. His son, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky dropped his own bid for the presidency last month.

Asked by Berliner if Donald Trump's anointment as the GOP presidential nominee is inevitable, Paul said: "I don't think anything's inevitable, [but] it sure looks like the cards are in place for him."
