Former presidential candidate Ron Paul criticized President Obama’s economic recovery proposal but said Saturday that blame for the financial crisis is deep-seated and includes Republicans who failed to hold the line on spending during the Bush administration.
He also offered a harsh critique of the three Republican senators who have said they will vote for the economic recovery proposal. A vote is scheduled for early next week.
Paul, a Republican representative from Texas who sought the GOP nomination for president, said that although some people call Obama’s plan to jumpstart the economy a “stimulus package,” he thinks it is a “pure spending package.”
The message came on a video posted on YouTube.
