Sen. Rand Paul: Compromise on partisan tax battle is possible

Senator Rand Paul (R – Kentucky) comes OutFront to discuss how to tackle the ever-growing deficit and the lack of progress in Washington. If raising tax rates is completely off the table, could Republicans and members of the Tea Party accept closing certain loopholes to raise revenue?

    Let me add that I'm not against cutting aid for Pakistan, they are not our friends and it is one of the few things I agree about with Senator Paul.

    The Republicans and Tea party voted for gridlock in 2010 and they now have it. If they take over the Presidency, I hope the Democrats won't work with them, because conservatives deserve what they sowed and that is millions of the idiots out of work.

    Erin, Rein in your guests!
    Some of these talking heads are too full of themselves, interested ony in the sound of their on voices ad the amount of airtime they are Abe to grab by their interruptive behavior.
    A little decorum/manners pleae.

    I'm glad to see a rep. say he is willing to compromise and work with the other side. We need to work for the best interest of the people not the parties.

    Erin the question you should have asked Rand Paul is: Are you willing to take 100 billion out of the defense budget which amounts to 500 billion dollars annually to fix all the big issues the country faces??
