Speaking to a meeting of influential conservatives here Monday night, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul criticized his fellow Republicans in Congress for lacking a unified leadership on the upcoming sequestration.
“We announce our surrender before we get started on every battle,” Paul said. “That literally is our problem.”
“We need to say over and over again…that the sequester was [Obama’s] idea, that he’s the one who’s laying people off, we aren’t, and that we have an idea to fix the sequester in a way that avoids any layoffs,” he added.
Noting that Senate Republicans have not yet coalesced behind a plan to deal with the impending across-the-board budget cuts, Paul, a libertarian and Tea Party favorite, called on his colleagues to get behind his own plan to fix the sequester.
