Paul pledges to write own U.S. balanced budget

June 07, 2010 | | Comments 70

Rand Paul, Republican nominee for U.S. SenateFRANKFORT — Republican U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul vowed Monday to introduce his own balanced budget for the nation if he is elected.

“If filibuster be necessary to make them pay attention to the debate over a balanced budget, I think a good week’s time would be well spent to have the whole country talk about what’s going to happen to us if we become (financially troubled) Greece,” Paul said.

Paul, appearing on the Rush Limbaugh radio show with guest host Walter Williams, stressed his call for a federal balanced budget by law.

He noted that Kentucky requires a balanced budget.

Kentucky “is suffering through a recession like every other state but we are nothing like California because we are forced to balance our budget,” Paul said.

“We don’t spend money we don’t have.”

Paul’s opponent in the Nov. 2 general election, Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway, could not be immediately reached for comment.

Paul, a Bowling Green eye surgeon who is making his first bid for public office, said the Tea Party movement shows that the United States cannot keep borrowing and adding to its debt.

Paul is to speak at a Tea Party movement statewide rally July 10 at the Capitol, said his campaign chairman, David Adams.

The rally is called “FreedomFest 2010! It is to begin at 5 p.m. that day and run through 8 p.m.

Adams said Monday that the campaign has been working with movement organizers in Kentucky for the event.

The movement advocates fewer taxes and less federal government.
