Paul Caught On Hot Mic Discussing GOP Talking Points

WPSD-TV caught Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) talking strategy  around the government shutdown on a live microphone.

Paul: "Do you have a second?"

McConnell: "I'm all wired up here, um."

Paul: "I just did CNN and I just go over and over again 'We're willing to compromise. 'We're willing to negotiate.' I think... I don't think they poll tested we won't negotiate. I think it's awful for them to say that over and over again."

McConnell: "Yeah, I do too and I, and I just came back from that two hour meeting with them and that, and that was basically the same view privately as it was publically."

Paul: "I think if we keep saying 'We wanted to defund it. We fought for that and that we're willing to compromise on this', I think they can't, we're gonna, I think... well I know we don't want to be here, but we're gonna win this I think."
