Not to many people in the media wrote about his appearance…..
But it appears he also did Ok….
Sen. Rand Paul got a rousing reception this afternoon at the Conservative Political Action Conference, lighting up a crowd that tends to have a libertarian streak to it, saying, “In the coming weeks, I will propose the largest tax cut in American history.”
Speaking with rolled-up sleeves, he promised to pitch “a tax cut that will leave more money in the paychecks of every worker in America. My tax plan will keep the IRS out of your life and out the way of every job creator in America. My plan will also cut spending and balance the budget in just five years.”
Paul, R-Ky., blasted Congress, now controlled by Republicans, calling it “dysfunctional.”
“Often, bills are plopped on our desk with only a few hours to review,” he said. “No one, and I mean no one, is able to read what is in the bill. I propose something truly outrageous: Congress should read every bill.”
The crowd was packed with supporters, and Paul was interrupted by chants of “President Paul, President Paul.” He perhaps received the loudest applause when talking about personal privacy and going after the woman he may face if he they both choose to run in 2016: Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary’s war in Libya is a perfect example,” he told the CPAC crowd in National Harbor, Maryland. “Hillary’s war made us less safe,” adding, “Libya’s less stable.”
He said to cheers: “It’s time for Hillary Clinton to permanently retire.”
Calling the crowd “lovers of liberty,” he asked them to “rise to the occasion.”
To those who complained about Jeb Bush packing the crowd?
Seems that the OTHER GUYS did so ALSO….
