Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was on with Greta Van Susteren tonight to discuss the current fiscal crisis in Washington DC.
Paul told Greta,

“I would raise the debt ceiling on one condition and that would be a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Barring that, people in Congress, those who I’ve met up here they don’t deserve to manage any more money. They’re doing a bad job managing the money they have. We should not send them any more money. They’re not to be trusted with money.

Agreed. Not another dime.

  1. “They” not to be trusted?

  2. As I mention previously – if you are not having your taxes sucked out of your paycheck in vampire-like fashion – don’t pay the taxes.

    The Federal Government is not based on your taxes but based on deficit spending. Tell them to send you a bill in 2249. And that you’ll be glad to pay it then.

  3. ++

    Amen Mr. Rand, wish you and your father could have
    traded places, as you may have been president right
    now, but alas, i digress..

    pardon the repetition:

    warning for those with, or are prone to, ulcers,
    take your meds, then proceed with caution..

    Harry Reid: “Paying income tax in America is Voluntary”

    bit more..

  5. I will be glad to pay more taxes…Just open up my unlimited line of credit with the Federal Reserve like all the politically favored people have. I will pass all the tax bills onto the line of credit and my earned income will cover the annual 0.05% interest payment. Then you could tax my income 99% no problem. When do the private sector tax payers get a government grade ponzi scheme ?

    Senate Democrats Say They’re Not Going
    To Pass A Budget In 2012 Either 2/4/12

    [Senate Democratic leaders do not plan to propose a budget this
    year, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters Friday, saying
    that they had already done so with the debt-ceiling agreement.

    “We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year — it’s
    done, we don’t need to do it,” Reid said, according to The Hill.

    Democrats have said that the agreement reached to
    raise the debt ceiling set spending for Fiscal Year 2012.

    North Dakota Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad, chairman of the Budget
    Committee, has said he will mark up a budget resolution this year, per
    an agreement he made with Budget Committee ranking member and
    Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions.

    Technically, Conrad marking up a budget resolution, but not ever
    bringing it to the floor, per Reid’s comments, does not violate that
    agreement, conceded a Republican aide, but the staffer went on
    to blast Reid’s comment.

    “What’s the point of marking up a budget if you’re not going to bring
    it to the floor for debate and vote?” fumed the Republican aide.]

    Obama never passed a budget 8/27/12

    [President Barack Obama will be the first president in this great
    country who will not have passed a budget in his first term of
    office. He submitted a budget that was defeated by a vote of
    97-0. Not a single Democrat or Republican voted for it.
    ]

    and last but not least, back to the future: 11/15/12

    New Democratic shenanigans, same
    as the old Democratic shenanigans..

    [Nutshell version: Democrats are continuing to apply the term
    “balanced approach” to what they’re actually shooting for, which
    is an uncompromising fiscal band-aid that can further delay us
    amending our unsustainable ways. Forward!
    ]

  7. Can our Reps be sent packing if they ignore their fiscal responsibilities?

  8. Wow–honesty from a politician. Must admit each time I hear Rand speak, I’m impressed. Why can’t GOP leaders talk like this–rhetorical question.

  9. It’s serious time. We’re heading for disaster- quickly under Obama. We’ll have $20,000,000,000,000 in public debt in 4 short years. What if interest rates go back to normal, say 5%? That’s a Trillion a year, just for interest. That’ll be about a quarter or more of our budget. That’s a disaster.

    No more debt ceiling increases. We’ll have to live on what we take in. It’ll hurt, but it’s required.

  10. Rand Paul is actually a true conservative “Libertarian”.. The acorn did not fall far from the tree.. The main stream Repugnants are big taxers and spenders just like the Kleptocrats.. Two sides of the same coin..

    rotf :lol: mbo!!

    Rand is not his father, whereas Ron is on the opposite side
    of the same coin (as you well know i have reiterated many
    a time)..

    same Obama coin..

  13. amen, brother. a true voice!!!

  14. No more debt ceiling increases. We’ll have to live on what we take in.

    Too late for that. If you want to “live on what we take in” the time to do that is when Congress passes appropriation bills. Not raising the debt limit is like controlling credit card debt by not paying your bills.

  15. Ann Barnhardt did it. Publicly announced it. Not paying for any more abortions. Not paying for any more Solyndras. Not paying for any more of Michelle’s multi-million-dollar vacations. Not paying for any more hundreds of Abrams battle tanks to be sent to the MB in Egypt.

    But how many other people have the balls?

    Leftists can issue death threats all day on Twitter, using their real names? And not get investigated, let alone punished as applicable by law?

    How many other people the balls to say “I’m finished paying for all of this.” PIGFORD I, II, and now, III (Women’s Edition, 50 thousand dollars, only about 85 days left to claim it. You don’t even have to be a woman, just claim your mother, or your grandmother, was denied USDA Farm Loans in the 90’s, and you get your “reparations”. Nobody will check anything.)

    Not enough. That’s how many.

  16. IT is called, budgeting. Common sense and it appears that not many in Washington ever passed economics class. It will take 20 years to get back to a healthy economy.
