The “Fed works temporarily, but we put so much money into the system that over time, due to inflation, we risk destroying the dollar. We must fix the budget deficit,” he emphasized. Dr. Paul compared the current state of the U.S. to that of the Soviet Union and its rise and collapse, as the soviets would make up plans to fix their deficit, but never act on it. “Republicans introduce legislation, but it doesn’t get done,” Paul stated.
