Press Release from Senator Paul's Office:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Sen. Rand Paul joined Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) in calling on Senate Democrat leadership to stay in session, cancel their vacations, and finally address the ever-worsening debt crisis facing our nation.
“Yesterday, Sen. Johnson took a bold step in calling to attention the inaction of our Senate Democrat leadership and President Obama. I stand by him and his mission to keep the Senate here in Washington to tackle the most critical issue facing our national security,” Sen. Paul said. “It has been nearly 800 days since the U.S. Senate passed a budget, the 112th Congress has been in session for six months and there has been no improvement on the issue of balancing our budget and addressing our debt.”
