Rand Paul’s response to Obama’s State of the Union address

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul delivered a personal rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening, mainly addressing the economy, unemployment and government spending.

Opening with a quote from the great Ronald Reagan, Paul said we can’t fix “mass unemployment and the poverty of the great recession” without understanding what caused it: The Federal Reserve, he said, caused the housing bubble and subsequent crash.

As a country, all of us together must ask, are we better off when we borrow money from China? Or are we better off when we print more money to pass around hoping no one will notice that the emperor has no clothes? The illusion wears thin. It’s time we choose another path.

I fully believe that most Americans hate the trap of government dependency, but can’t break free because big government gives them no exit. Hard work and sweat invigorate the spirit and provide a solace no government program will ever achieve.

America has much greatness left in her. We must believe in ourselves, believe in our founding documents, believe in our future, and then we will thrive again.

Watch Paul’s response here, and then watch the GOP’s empowering State of the Union response:
