The commie savages on reddit jumped on this Reason hit piece with gleeful hate. That is the strongest indicator of bullshit (even more than Rand's own words).
Seriously. You have to take a Republican's word (including both Pauls) with a grain of salt, but you can assume the propaganda cheered by Democrat media is at best manipulated to make a Republican seem as bad as possible, and more typically the exact opposite of the truth. This was a hit piece written by a Beltwaytarian and cheered by Dem propagandists. The red flags should have been automatic.
