Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul

By Beth Musgrave –

FRANKFORT — U.S. Senator Rand Paul will appear before a state government legislative committee in late February to lend support to a resolution that would ask the federal government to balance its budget.

According to a release from Senate President David Williams, Paul will testify in support of a bill Williams intends to sponsor encouraging Congress to balance its books. The resolution would encourage calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would require a balanced federal budget.

Paul, a Bowling Green eye surgeon, has said he intends to release his own federal budget soon that includes billions of dollars in cuts.

Williams, a Burkesville lawyer, is seeking the Republican nomination for governor.

The Republican freshman senator will appear before the senate State and Local Government Committee on Feb. 22. Paul is expected to address the full senate in the afternoon.

    This seems to be a case of Ronald McDonald appearing on the ‘Bozo Show’.

    Makes for rip roaring TV, but after the face paint wears off, there isn’t much to show except for a bunch of tired old f*arts.

    Balancing the budget is a good idea, but all of these people calling for a balanced budget will not put forth a tax and spending reform plan to do so. Ending our pointless and expensive wars would be a good start.

    They don’t put forth a plan because they have not figured out how to fit one on a bumpersticker. That type of rhetoric is all we have yet to see; yet the bobbleheads ran as quick as possible to the voting booths to endorse bumpersticker economics, never mind that the math just doesn’t work.
