Rep. Ron Paul Slams Rick Santorum On CNN: He Is ‘Very Liberal’

In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash this morning, Ron Paul slammed Rick Santorum, calling him “very liberal.” When Bash asked why, Paul responded, “I mean, have you looked at his record? Go look at his record,” Paul exclaimed. “He spends too much money. He wasn’t leading the charge to slash the budgets and vote against big government.”

Paul’s son, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul added that Santorum’s voting record favored government expansion.

“He voted to double the size of the Department of Education,” Paul said. “He voted to expand Medicare and add free drugs for senior citizens and he has voted for foreign aid. Those are not conservative principles. Seventy-seven percent of the American people are opposed to foreign aid and Rick Santorum has voted for it every time it’s come down.”
