U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) may be one of the only voices of sanity left in Washington. Paul is the son of former Presidential candidate Ron Paul who left Congress just last week.
Of the recent Fiscal Cliff “deal” Paul said,
“Not only are they raising taxes — maybe on a smaller percentage of people but a large amount of money — but they’re also going to spend more money,” Paul said. “So it’s a spending bill.”
Paul, a tea party Republican, continued, “I object to increasing spending and increasing taxes. That’s really the real deal killer for me. If it were just tax rates, and you told me I had the choice of protecting 99 percent, I would vote … for that. Once Democrats sign on board in the House, it should pass as well.”
Paul was born on this day in 1963. He is rumored to be considering a run for the White House in 2016.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
