For Sen. Rand Paul, Elections Do Not Have Consequences
Today, Sen. Rand Paul appeared on Glenn Beck's radio program to make the case that, despite the results of the recent election, the American people want Republicans to refuse to even consider raising any taxes whatsoever in order to deal with the looming "fiscal cliff."
As Paul sees it, if Republicans are willing to raise taxes in this case, then the entire party ought to simply disband; an idea that Beck wholeheartedly endorsed since the GOP has become the Whig Party and everyone, outside of his immediate family, hates House Speaker John Boehner.
Paul went on to claim that since Republicans only lost 52%-48% in the last election, they didn't really get "creamed," so there is no reason for them to have to compromise. Instead they simply need to come up with an alternative solution to the crisis that doesn't involve any tax increases at all and "show the American people we are willing to avert the so-called cliff, but this is how we would fix the country if we were in charge, because we are in charge of the United States House of Representatives. You elected us to be in charge; let's act like we're in charge."
The only problem with that, Paul explained, was that any such plan would have to go through the House Republican leadership, which would be quite difficult since, as Beck proclaimed, that means it has to go through Boehner "and he sucks":
