Spokesman Says Senator Paul Wants Pentagon Audited

RandPaul300x300FRANKFORT, Ky. (1/15/13) – Jason Hasert, a spokesman for U.S. Senator Rand Paul, spoke this week with surfky.com in an exclusive interview. Hasert spoke of several of Sen. Paul's concerns for the New Year.
 
"Senator Paul has been very concerned about the fiscal cliff,” said Hasert. “He did vote against the agreement because he feels that the government and congress have had ten years to deal with the problem. And, they waited until the last hour and the last minute to work on it. When you're looking at thousand page bills, and you have 4 minutes to read it, he just has a lot of apprehension. He wants to have a balanced budget amendment brought forward to help the government and the taxpayers have better service.”
 
What other issues concern Paul beyond the fiscal cliff?
 
"There is the upcoming budget we'll be dealing with in March. There's a debt-ceiling issue. And some of the things the senator would like to do are to find existing money in the government and move it around. He would like to audit the Pentagon rather than cutting the military. He'd like to find places where the money might not be working as well as it could, and move it places that need it." Hasert explained.
 
"Also Senator Paul has just been to Israel,” Hasert added. “He is a new member of the Foreign Relations Committee. He was there to meet with key government officials and learn about a lot of the issues, just to see where the U.S. can be of help, and what he can take back to Washington."
 
While in the Middle East, Paul met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and King Abdulla II of Jordon.
