ROCHESTER, New Hampshire — Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul told voters in high-stakes New Hampshire that the US must transform its foreign policy to cut back on aid, military bases and combat missions.

“I am sick and tired of foreign welfare,” said Paul, 76, a medical doctor who has delivered more than 4,000 babies and who served as a flight surgeon in the US Air Force.

He added: “Stop these senseless wars so we can provide health care for people at home.”

Declaring government spending “is the problem,” Paul vowed to cut $1 trillion from the budget the first year if he were elected president.

Paul spoke at a packed town hall on Veterans Day, vowing to stop federal bailouts, allow more US energy development and encourage American businesses to “come back” from China and elsewhere through business-friendly tax policies.
