Rand Paul on OWS: ‘A Paris Mob’

by Betsy Woodruff

Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) tells NRO that Occupy Wall Street reminds him of a “Paris mob,” and he blames President Obama for stirring American unrest. “I think it stems from the president promoting this idea of class warfare and emotions of envy,” he says. “I don’t think it’s helpful to the country to say rich people are not paying their fair share, particularly when it’s untrue — we have a progressive income tax in our country. The middle class, the upper middle class, and the rich pay all of the income tax.”
