Ron Paul: "Monstrous" Super Committee Not Constitutional

Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) spoke with FOX Business Network’s (FBN) Lou Dobbs about the deficit deal reached by Congress which includes the formation of a super committee to cut government spending. Paul said “I keep looking and I can’t find any place in the Constitution where we have the authority to create such a creature as the super Congress.” He went on to say that the formation of such a committee is “monstrous.”

“You don’t get out of the problem of having too much debt by allowing Congress to spend a lot more. It never made any sense to me; it just digs the hole much deeper and then it gets harder for us to get out. It was a very easy vote for me but it became much easier when I saw the vehicle they were using to create this super Congress. Where in the world did that come from and where is that going to lead to? That is monstrous. I keep looking and I can’t find any place in the Constitution where we have the authority to create such a creature as the super Congress," Rep. Paul said.
