Rand Paul talks spending, ‘free stuff’ in Tea Party response to SOTU

By

Sen. Rand Paul didn’t reach for a sip of water during his Tea Party Express state of the union response, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching. Paul’s speech was all about limited government and responsible spending. Mitt Romney took a beating in the press for suggesting that the promise of “gifts” was partially responsible for President Obama’s reelection, but Paul wasn’t backing away from the idea.
