Rand Paul May not want to blow up the economy

Rand Paul promises to filibuster everything over debt ceiling | Video Cafe:
"'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. We will filibuster until we talk about the debt ceiling, until we talk about proposals, and many of us in the conservative wing are going to present our own proposal next week. And that is to raise the debt ceiling. We will actually vote in favor of raising the debt ceiling next week if we can but it will be contingent upon passing a balanced budget amendment.'"
But he sure does sound like that is his goal. For anyone that needs more proof that a balanced budget amendment is a shitty idea they need to look no farther than California and the requirement for a supermajority to raise taxes.
