VIDEO: Sen. Rand Paul on #OccupyWallStreet, Repealing No Child Left Behind


The latest iteration of No Child Left Behind comes before a Senate committee tomorrow with bipartisan support. But if Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has anything to say about it, the bill won’t go anywhere fast.

“I think the whole process stinks from top to bottom,” Paul said. “The bill is 867 pages and we got it yesterday? I talked to committee members today and said this isn’t the way government should work.”

A Tea Party favorite who won election last November, Paul has promised to introduce 100 amendments to No Child Left Behind which comes before a Senate committee tomorrow, including a complete repeal of the legislation.

Paul also addressed the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protest in New York and similar demonstrations taking place across America. “I see a lot of hypocrisy in the movement,” he shared. “But I also see some lurking danger in the sense that they are saying that people who are successful got it somehow immorally and that it’s immoral for them to have it.”

The interview runs about 5 minutes. Hosted by Rob Bluey and produced by Brandon Stewart. For more videos from Heritage, subscribe to our YouTube channel.
