Rand Paul Introduces Bill to Cut $500 Billion

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is introducing “$500 billion in spending cuts today – to be enacted over one year,” according to a press release from his office.

“I am proud to introduce my own solution to the mounting debt our spendthrift, oversized government has accrued. By rolling back to 2008 levels and eliminating the most wasteful programs, we can still keep 85 percent of our government funding in place,” Sen. Paul said today.

“By removing programs that are beyond the constitutional role of the federal government, such as education and housing, we are cutting nearly 40 percent of our projected deficit and removing the big-government bureaucrats who stand in the way of efficiency in our federal government,” he continued.

    Good for you, Senator! While you’re at it, perhaps you can take a look at sunsetting the BATFE and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Send those folks home and return power to the States where it belongs.
