My podcast with Senator-elect Rand Paul is already breaking news today at The Hill:
“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, “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.
Listen to the whole thing, as Paul had more than that to say. He last spoke with us in September, so there are several news stories since then — on Obamacare’s standing in the courts, the deficit commission, and the omnibus budget bill — which he weighs in on.
