Exclusive-Rand Paul: I Think Obama Will Cave on Debt Ceiling NegotiationsSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Fri, 10/11/2013 - 13:07
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News exclusively on Friday morning that he believes President Barack Obama will cave on the debt ceiling and end up negotiating with congressional Republicans if the GOP holds its ground.
As Paul was leaving to meet with Obama at the White House from the Family Research Council (FRC) Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, he told Breitbart News he believes Obama will end up negotiating over the debt ceiling. Paul and several GOP senators are planning to meet with the president at the White House on Friday about the debt ceiling.
“He [Obama] says a lot of things like he won’t negotiate and he’s going to veto things,” Paul said. “He really isn’t that consistent with following through. I can probably count 10 times in the last five years where he says ‘oh, I’ll veto something’ or ‘I won’t negotiate’ and he ends up negotiating or not vetoing things. So, I think he will come to the table.”
