Ron Paul Says “The People and the Congress” are Responsible for the U.S. Debt Crisis, Credit Rating Downgrade – Video 8/12/11

Here is video of Rep. Ron Paul being asked who is to blame for the downgrade of the U.S. Credit Rating, and the nation’s Debt Crisis. CNN’s Don Lemon tracked Paul down at the Iowa State Fair and asked him if it was the Democrats, the Republicans, the Tea Party, etc.

Ron Paul gave an interesting answer:

“The People and the Congress, because the People have demanded big government and supported all these wars, and they need to quit doing it. So, it’s an appetite for big government that’s at fault, and the Congress goes along with that because they appease them and they get re-elected.”
