Rand Paul adopts DownSize DC Agenda!

I got the following E-mail today from Downsize DC. Watch their interview with Rand Paul.

Rand Paul wants to Cut Congressional Pay for every year that the government runs a deficit.

I don't know about you, but that always ticks me off when Congress automatically gives itself a "cost of living adjustment." I don't get a cost of living adjustment. And the reason I need one is because the Federal Reserve is devaluing the dollar! Anyway, here's the DownSize DC e-mail.

I travelled down to Kentucky last Friday to meet with Dr. Rand Paul, son of Congressman Ron Paul, and candidate for the U.S. Senate from Kentucky. I was there to discuss our Downsize DC Agenda proposals -- the Read the Bills Act, etc.
We met at a coffee shop. I just arrived after four hours on the road, walked in, and before I could order anything they suggested turning on a camera to tape our discussion so they could put it on their website. I still had gum in my mouth, but off we went with the interview. IT WAS GREAT! WATCH IT!
* The Rand Paul website is here:
* You can watch the video on his homepage, or if that doesn't work for some reason, you can watch it here:

There's a very good chance Dr. Paul will be the new Senator from Kentucky, so it was very exciting and gratifying to hear him endorse and agree that he would introduce every single item of the Downsize DC Agenda! That means . . .
* The Read the Bills Act 
* The One Subject at a Time Act 
* The Write the Laws Act 

He also promised to co-sponsor the Enumerated Powers Act, introduced in the Senate by Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.
And shortly after the camera went off, he told me he'd also re-introduce the Fiscal Responsibility Act. This is a bill to cut Congressional pay each year they run a deficit. Since Nathan Deal of Georgia has refused to reintroduce it in this Congress, we haven't updated the campaign.   
Please go to Rand Paul's homepage and watch the video!
And sorry about the gum chewing.

  1. How can you make those remarks about Obama's stand on BP. Evidently you do not understand the technology of well drilling. Did you not see 60 minutes this last week. BP is endangering the lives of employees on the rigs and understood fully how neglectful they were in not making the proper changes in equipment to keep this from happening. Big companies making billions become greedy and press their luck by not doingwhat is necessary to keep their equiment in top shape. Perhaps you should become more knowledgeable before you blame the president for stepping on their toes. What if that was your son that was totally set on fire at that rig. Would you have a different opinion. I think so. A concerned citizen of US.
