All statements involving Rand Paul

Says President Barack Obama revealed in his State of the Union address that he "now is against earmarks."

"We now consume at the federal level 25 percent of the gross domestic product. Historically we were at 20 percent. So we've taken 5 percent away from the private sector."

"The average federal employee makes $120,000 a year. The average private employee makes $60,000 a year."

"The interest on the debt now is going to approach in the next couple of years ... what we spend in the national defense budget."

Rand Paul wants "to end all federal faith-based initiatives, and even end the deduction for religious charities."

Rand Paul "wants us to pay $2,000 just to get Medicare."
