Government involvement in health care eliminates price competition and therefore increases costs, asserted Rand Paul, who appeared with his father Ron Paul on CNN’s Situation Room today. The Obama administration’s notion that increased health care spending won’t increase the debt is ridiculous, and new solutions are required.
Ron Paul attacked the government for fighting undeclared wars; the sooner we end them, the better, because they are one of the causes of the US government’s de facto bankruptcy.
Rand Paul stated that the government’s primary purpose is national defense; therefore, any potential war should be carefully debated before it is actually started.
Rand Paul is running for the US Senate in Kentucky. Check out his website at RandPaul2010.com
