“First, I will veto any spending bills that contribute to an unbalanced budget."
(Memo to Rep. Paul: Please read Stephanie Kelton, What Happens When the Government Tightens its Belt and What Happens When the Government Tightens its Belt, Part II. Then follow up with Obama’s Implausible Dream: Cut the Deficit without Destroying Jobs)
“Second, I will veto any spending bill that contains funding for Planned Parenthood, facilities that perform abortion and all government family planning schemes.

“And fourth, I will on day one of my administration begin to repeal by Executive Order unconstitutional and burdensome regulations on American business. I will be the first President to shrink the size of the Federal Register. We must create a favorable regulatory environment for U.S. business. This cannot be stressed enough.”
(Someone please ask Rep. Paul to read some of the writings of Prof. William K. Black on control fraud. The False Dichotomy between Banking Honesty and a Sound Financial System is a good place to start.)
