Must-See Moments From Fox News Channel's New Primetime Lineup
Paul slammed Democrats’ priorities in light of the government shutdown, saying, “You’ve got to wonder. Apparently the Amber Alert, you know searching for a kidnapped child, has been closed down but Let’s Move weight loss program for the First Lady is open today, so I guess they do have priorities.”
While he believes Dems are “playing games with the shutdown,” the more serious concern is that “they’re also playing games with defaulting” which will scare the markets. “I think it’s irresponsible for the president or Jack Lew or any of his men or women to go out on TV and say, ‘Oh, the U.S. might default.’ […] We’ve never defaulted, we will never default, and there’s not even a reason to default because we have plenty of revenue that comes in every month to pay our interest payment.”
