Sen. Paul Responds to President Obama’s Nomination of Alan Krueger Rand Paul | United States SenatorYesterday, President Obama nominated Princeton labor economist Alan Krueger to become the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Sen. Rand Paul issued the following statement in response:
"Alan Krueger is nothing more than an extreme government interventionist, cut from the same cloth as those who have failed to correctly predict, diagnose, and manage our economic problem.
"During his tenure at the Treasury Department, Alan Krueger helped design the 'cash for clunkers' program and even supported a European style value-added tax that would raise prices on American families.
I agree with him, but this seems pointless. Might as well ask Obama to step down as well.
