Sen. Rand Paul Floor Remarks on Balancing the Budget
Wednesday, 09 March 2011 15:43
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Rand Paul today took to the Senate floor to speak on the issue of our nation’s debt crisis and dire need to balance the budget.
We are discussing and debating two different alternatives, one from the other side of the aisle and one from our side, about what we should do about the budget deficit.
We have projected a $1.65 trillion deficit in the next year.
I think both alternatives are inadequate and do not significantly alter or change our course. On the Democrat side, we have a proposal to cut about $5 billion to $6 billion for the rest of the year. To put that in perspective, we borrow $4 billion a day.
