Sen. Paul Announces Taxpayer Savings at Louisville Press Conference

Feb 20, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. - At a press conference today in Louisville, Sen. Rand Paul announced that he will be returning $600,000 to the United States Treasury - money unspent from his official operating budget. The total amount being returned is more than 20 percent of Sen. Paul's original office budget. Sen. Paul returned $500,000 to the Treasury last year, contributing to the $1.1 million in money unspent from his operating budget since he took office.

"I ran to stop the reckless spending, and I pledged to the people of Kentucky that I would work to keep their hard-earned money out of the hands of Washington bureaucrats whose irresponsible spending has threatened our country's economic health," Sen. Paul said.

At the press conference, Sen. Paul presented taxpayers with an over-sized check for $600,000, representing the money being returned to the Treasury.

Sen. Paul will also introduce legislation this year incentivizing federal employees to identify and eliminate wasteful programs in their respective agencies.

He is already one of the best Senators in the country.
