During Tuesday’s debate, Rand Paul asked Marco Rubio how he was going to reduce spending and debt while still supporting a trillion dollars in new Pentagon spending.
“We have to decide what is conservative and what isn’t conservative,” Paul said.
“Add (Rubio’s child care credit) to Marco’s plan for a trillion dollars in new military spending and you get something that looks to me, not very conservative.”
Paul added, “You can’t be conservative if you’re going to keep promoting programs you’re not going to pay for.”
Rubio said, “I believe the world is a stronger and better place when the United States is the strongest military power in the world.”
“I know that Rand is a committed isolationist; I’m not,” Rubio said to Paul.
