Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was interviewed by Sean Hannity of Fox News on Thursday night. He was asked about the prospects of a government shutdown.
“I don’t think any of us want to shut down the government,” he said, referring to Republicans in Congress.
Paul was also asked what it would take to win his support for an increase in the debt ceiling. “I can’t imagine voting to raise the debt ceiling unless we do something dramatic,” he replied.
“To me, something dramatic would be a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.”
