Rand Paul: ‘The president is making stuff up’

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., didn’t hold back on criticism of President Obama’s sequestration scare tactics in a Friday appearance on Fox News’ “Happening Now.”

When asked by host Jenna Lee what his message would be to viewers, Paul let loose.

“I would say balderdash. It’s untrue, unfair, dishonest, disingenuous,” he said. “The president is making stuff up.”

Paul noted that while local taxes foot most of the bill for police and firefighters, Obama says they will be affected by the sequester.

“It’s not true. The sequester is a slowdown in the rate of growth of government,” Paul explained. “It’s the least we can do.”

NewsBusters accused the media of not telling the public the truth about “just how small these cuts are in relation to the size of the budget and the economy and therefore how inconsequential they’re going to be.”
