Democrats Bolt Super Committee Negotiations - Sen. Rand Paul

Democrats Bolt Super Committee Negotiations - Sen. Rand Paul

Walkout Follows Rejection Of Republicans Proposal

By Dell Hill

A report today by Senator Rand Paul indicates that Democrats assigned to the President’s debt reduction super committee have walked out on the negotiations.  With a Thanksgiving deadline, this would not seem to be the time to be bolting from the on-going talks, but it’s not all that surprising, given the Democrats rejection of a Republican proposal to allow up to $300 billion dollars in revenue (taxes!) in exchange for tax code reform and adjustments to the so-called Bush tax cuts.

Here’s the latest from Hannity.

“Latest update on the lack of progress for Dems and Republicans to reach a tax deal. Yesterday Democrats of the Super Committee rejected Republicans' offer to "raise federal tax collections by nearly $300 billion over the next decade."

Senator Rand Paul exclusively has JUST told Sean that not only are Democrats rejecting offers put on the table, but now they won't even continue to negotiate and have "walked away from the table...refusing to talk to the Republicans."

Paul warns the American people that this is all about Obama's reelection, and the taxpayers livelihood is of no concern to Obama and the Democrats.

For those who can’t access the audio, here’s a transcript of the conversation between Sean Hannity and Senator Rand Paul.

Audio verbate: Senator Rand Paul (KY) on the Sean Hannity radio show Nov. 9, 2011:

P:Sean can I make it up to you by giving you a scoop, that maybe people don't know yet?

S: Yeah what you got it

P: I have news straight from sources close to the SuperCommittee that the Democrats have walked away from the table and they're refusing to talk to the Republicans about a deal and they will not counter any offers and basically there's an impass and it's starting to look like they don't want any deal at all.

S: This was all being telegraphed by Chuck Shcumer yesterday, I am sure you saw it on TV

S: They want to say that because Republicans will not raise taxes they are rigid. THat we are not going to have a deal on teh economy.I think the democrats are just gonna be happy gutting the defense department, which is part of this deal.

P: And the truth is quite the opposite the republicans have offered tax reform that lowers tax rates and closes loopholes.The president talks about millionaires not paying their taxes, we are trying to close some loopholes, but we want to be part of tax reform. We have offered a serious credible offer, but bascially they have walked away from the table.
