Rush Limbaugh endorsed Ron Paul’s Restore America economic plan, which the conservative talk grand poobah touted as showing the Republican presidential field what a “serious fiscal reform plan” looks like. The plan includes freezing government agency budgets at 2006 levels, the EPA cut by 30%, the FDA by 40%, foreign aid zeroed out, and the Pentagon budget slashed. Much federal welfare would be block granted to the states, while the federal workforce would be reduced by 10%.
Rush claimed that Ron Paul doesn’t really own these ideas, which is laughable. For the record, Ron Paul is a libertarian Republican.
