Paul Plans Filibuster Over Debt Ceiling

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told C-SPAN that he will lead a Senate filibuster to force debt ceiling negotiations into the open.

Said Paul: "We've had not one minute of debate about the debt ceiling in any committee. We haven't had a budget in two years. We haven't had an appropriations bill in two years. So I'm part of the freshmen group in the Senate that's saying, 'no more.'"

"Next week, we will filibuster until we talk about the debt ceiling, until we talk about proposals."
