Rand Paul On Budget: We Need 'Reagan-esque' Recovery Senator Rand Paul on Fox News' "On the Record" with Greta van Sustern: "You know I think senior citizens are squeezed, and they're squeezed because their check stays the same and their prices rise. Can you squeeze some extra money out os seniors by doing all these manipulations to the CPI? You might be able to. But why don't we get an economy that grows so that not everybody is so squeezed. You know we're growing less than one percent on average for the last for years, the last quarter we actually were shrinking. The jobs report of last week was abysmal. So really what we need is a Reagan-esque type of recovery and we're not getting it."
