Rand Paul "Room in the Party for those who believe in bigger government"Submitted by Ian56 on Sun, 08/18/2013 - 14:50
On Sunday, Fox News host John Roberts asked Rand Paul if he wanted to try to defuse the situation.
“What I would say is the party’s big enough for both of us,” the Kentucky Republican replied. “This all started with him saying, we don’t have room for libertarian Republicans. The thing is, that’s how we grow our party.”
“But, again, do you agree with your father when he says Gov. Christie offers nothing?” Roberts pressed.
“What I would say is there’s room for people who believe in bigger government in our party,” Rand Paul insisted. “Some of the things he seems to have promoted makes us believe that, well, he thinks there’s a lot more spending that can go on. I think that national defense is a priority for our country. The only way we have enough money for national defense is actually to be very, very frugal with other spending. And that is a valid disagreement we have.”
A better segment from the same interview this morning:-
On “Fox News Sunday” this weekend, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul said President Barack Obama’s proposed measures for handling the NSA data collection scandal were insufficient and called for the agency’s powers to be reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
