STAND WITH RAND: Sen. Paul SOUNDS THE ALARM on National Debt
Posted On 12 Feb 2018 /
National Radio host Buck Sexton weighed-in on Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster of the recently passed bipartisan budget deal on Friday, saying he’s one of the few Republican legislators to sound the alarm on the nation’s ballooning debt and overspending.
“There you had Senator Rand Paul during his filibuster which didn’t last all that long. The government was shut down in the middle of the night, no one noticed, it was re-opened by the time the day got started,” said Buck.
“This is a big budget deal. It adds more to the military, and there are increases in spending across a lot of major categories. When you look at this, you have to think, ‘Hold on a second, what is the end state here? Where is this all heading?’” he asked.
“It keeps the government funded for a while, it gets rid of budget caps, but no one is saying, ‘Hold on a second, maybe we should take a step back and re-evaluate how long we can keep spending beyond our means?’” said Sexton.
“Debt is a very dangerous thing, a very destructive thing. It’s powerful but it can also turn on you. In the case of our government, we’ve been able to get away with a lot because we are the world’s reserve currency, and that really helps,” he added.
