Republican Senator Rand Paul, appearing on What America Thinks, unlike many senators in his party, isn’t as worried about the impact of the sequester cuts on defense. "We do need weaponry, we need sophisticated weapons, but the weapons should be decided on whether or not we need them for our defense, not as jobs projects,” he says. “Because you have some Republicans who sound like liberals and sound like Lord Keynes when they say 'this is how we're going to create jobs' through the defense industry. But if that were true, why not the car industry or why not the computer industry?"
What America Thinks is a nationally syndicated television show hosted by Scott Rasmussen. It airs on 61 stations nationwide. Find a station near you.
