Rand Paul: Negotiator

Evidently Rand Paul's been watching the Priceline commercials.

Want to save $500 billion this year? Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has a way to do it.

That's a number that Boehner (and for that matter, the Republican Study Committee) never even dreamed about--and it's in ONE YEAR.

...there's also no reason every agency has to see its budget increase every year, and a lot of these cuts really do make sense. Most of them simply represent a return to 2008 levels of spending -- remember that a 30 percent cut is less than it seems when an agency's budget been increasing by 40 percent over the last few years.

Sorry, up late - a little snarky.

Run that through....
