Rand Paul Can’t Name One Item He Would Cut in the United States Budget

Rand Paul

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)– Interviewed by Christiane Amanpour on ABC’s This Week, Senator Elect Rand Paul refused to name one budget item he would cut, insisting, instead, that he would look at the budget "across the board."

From Joshua Miller at ABC:

One thing was very clear: Rand Paul wants to drastically cut how much money the United States spends. Which specific programs will get the axe? That was a bit fuzzier.

"Give me one specific cut, Senator-elect," This Week anchor Christiane Amanpour asked Paul in an exclusive interview Sunday morning.

"All across the board," Paul said.

"But you can’t just keep saying all across the board," Amanpour pressed.

"No, I can," Paul replied. "I’m going to look at every program, every program." He said he would freeze federal hiring and, perhaps, reduce the number of federal employees by 10% along with the remaining government employees’ wages by 10%.

Amanpour pressed for specifics. Paul danced.
