Rand Paul: Attach Spending Cuts to All Legislation

By on 12.29.10 | 9:14AM

Sen.-elect Rand Paul (R-KY) is already stirring up trouble. He says all major pieces of legislation should contain spending cuts.

"I think that every piece of major legislation that goes forward from now on needs to have attached to it spending cuts," Paul said during a podcast with conservative blogger Ben Domenech. If Congress is serious about the nation's ballooning debt and deficits, Paul said, "We have to be serious and introduce spending cuts.

"That's one thing that I will do when I am there, is introduce it at every opportunity and we will have votes on it," he said.
