Rand Paul: Republicans Don't Do Anything to Balance Budget

By    |   Monday, 02 Feb 2015 10:42 PM

Sen. Rand Paul called out his fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill on Monday, saying they vote for a balanced budget amendment, but don't take the action when voting for a budget that will actually balance it.

"I'm a stickler," Paul said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."

"I put forward a plan every year that I've been here to balance the budget in five years," Paul said. "That's consistent with the balanced budget amendment that we vote on. This year we'll vote again on the balanced budget amendment."

Paul said the "Penny Plan," first introduced by Rep. Connie Mack in 2011, would balance the budget in less than five years but cutting one penny from every dollar across the board.

On the other hand, President Barack Obama's budget proposal, released on Monday, would add more to the debt than all previous presidents combined, Paul said.

"He doesn't get what every American family gets. We can't spend what we don't have or we go to bankruptcy court," Paul said. "How are we supposed to be a powerful nation from bankruptcy court?"
