Paul Discusses Government Shutdown, Debt Ceiling

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.”

    I couldn’t agree more. Social Security has over a two trillion surplus as it stands today and the Republicans want to tap into that money that has been solvent for 75 years. So keep your Damned republican fingers out of the Social Security and let it keep its soventcy just as it has been for the last 75 years. You want to cut Billions upon Billions, Were paying over 70 billion dollars a year to keep non violent offender in prison , So start cutting on prisons. There is no reason That The United States Has More People In Prisons Than any other nation in the whole world. I talking about non-violent offenders of the law . You want to tap in to Social Security That You well know will help keep non-violent offender of law in prisons . We are the Prison Capitol Of The World , But no matter where you want to cut or tapp into anything, Leave Our Social Security Solvent , and I could thing of any place better to start cutting in the prisons and building more while your at it and Veterans have been needing a good Surgical Hospital in Casper Wyoming, But You would rather build more prisons rather than Hospitals and not to mention that our great nation of prisons spends 95% more on jails and prisons than they do for schools. I can’t’ be proud of THIS America
