Rand: We Send $15 Billion to Pakistan, They Laugh ... and Don’t Change Their Behavior

‘We have things at home that need to be fixed’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

PAUL: “I think the people are greatly disconnected and unhappy with Washington. Two weeks ago I tried to block the sale — the subsidized sale for taxpayers pay for F-16s for Pakistan. Nobody in my state is for that. We have things at home that need to be fixed. Roads repaired. We sent $15 billion to Pakistan and they basically laugh and cash our check and they don’t change their behavior. They persecute Christians. They are — have imprisoned the guy who helped get bin Laden. So people at home don’t understand us sending that money overseas when we have problems in Kentucky.”
