Freshman Kentucky Senator Rand Paul continues his push to cut $500 billion from the federal budget.
In an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Paul, a Republican, spoke for the Tea Party Caucus “Bring on the cuts! And then, bring on more!”
Paul’s budget plan would cut billions from the departments of education, housing and agriculture, among others. It puts him and his Tea Party Caucus (which is a minority in the Senate and in the GOP) at odds with both major parties, which are championing different spending plans.
