Sen. Paul: Both Parties Spend Too Much

Source: WSJ, 2-12-13

Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.), who was asked by tea party activists to respond to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, was preparing to criticize both parties for letting spending rise – a central tea party theme.

“Washington acts in a way that your family never could. They spend money they do not have, they borrow from future generations, and then they blame each other for never fixing the problem.’’

“Not only should the sequester stand, many pundits say the sequester really needs to be at least $4 trillion to avoid another downgrade of America’s credit rating. Both parties will have to agree to cut, or we will never fix our fiscal mess.”

“We are the party that embraces hard work and ingenuity, therefore we must be the party that embraces the immigrant who wants to come to America for a better future.”
