Rand Paul Unloads On Unlimited Debt Ceiling Increase

Rand Paul did not hold back on raising the debt ceiling.

Some say that it is irresponsible not to raise the debt ceiling. Well, true fiscal conservatives say it’s irresponsible to raise the debt ceiling without any reform of our profligate spending ways. To allow the debt ceiling to go up an infinite amount, as much as Congress can possibly spend and borrow, over a nearly two-year period is fiscally irresponsible and has never been seen in our history. This may well be the most fiscally irresponsible thing we’ve done in the history of the United States. The federal government is currently spending nearly $2 million every minute. Don’t let anybody fool you, this is a spending problem. The annual deficit this year will exceed $1.2 trillion. What is irresponsible is recklessly indenturing our children and our grandchildren. What is irresponsible is binding our kids to this massive burden of debt. What is irresponsible is a Congress that believes they are Santa Claus and that they can be everything to everyone and everything is free.
