"A group of tea party Senators plans to filibuster over raising the debt ceiling, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) announced in an interview that aired on C-SPAN Sunday. 'I was part of a group this week that said, 'No more!'' Paul explained. 'We’re tired of talking about extraneous issues. We’ve had not one minute of debate about the debt ceiling in any committee. We haven’t had a budget in two years. We haven’t had an appropriations bill in two years. So I’m part of the freshman group in the Senate that’s saying, 'no more!' We’re not going to let them go to any issue if we have a say in it.'" (07/03/11)
