Rand Paul Mocks Obama at CPAC

Sen. Rand Paul's speech on Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference drew cheers and standing ovations as the Kentucky Republican invoked Ronald Reagan and the importance of "believing in something" while mocking President Obama for proposing to tax the wealthy.

Paul cited several statistics emphasizing that the majority of income taxes are paid by the top 10 percent of earners. He said that if Obama "wants the tax code to be fair, he's going to have to reduce the taxes on the rich."

 

The freshman senator also criticized Obama's decision earlier this week to fully embrace a super PAC supporting his reelection effort after having often criticized such PACs.

"I have a question, a question for the president: Do you hate all rich people, or just rich people who don't contribute to your campaign?" he said.
