Paul Blasts Federal Regulations on Economy

Government regulation is stifling the economy and the greatness of the nation, Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul told an audience Monday in Georgetown. Repeating many of the themes that got him elected last November, the Bowling Green eye doctor said the marketplace, not regulators, should decide the success of businesses. “If people want to buy a car that gets 15 miles to the gallon because they think it’s safer, they ought to be allowed to,” he said. “We need to get the government out of most of these decisions.”
