Rand Paul Chides Harry Reid for Calling Bundy Family 'Domestic Terrorists'
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) called for “calmer heads to prevail” in the showdown between the Bundy family and the federal government.
Paul chided Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) for calling the family and their supporters “domestic terrorists.”
“I don’t think calling people names is going to calm this down; I think its liable to stir it up, so I think all parties including Sen. Reid should calm the rhetoric a little bit. Let’s try to have a peaceful resolution to this,” Paul said during an interview on Fox News Thursday night.
Paul added that he believed that the Endangered Species Act had been abused for years, calling it “government run amok.”
“We have to balance the needs of a turtle and the needs of man, and the needs and the rights of property owners,” he said.
