The first video is the entire interview. But the two shorter videos are segments of the long one.
Rand did a great job explaining the debt .
In the 5 minute video at the end (@3:50 min ) he explains the amount the US takes in as taxes and we would not default. President must pay the interest on the debt because of the legislation called the full faith and credit act.

So, government is going to run health & medicine. Does that mean that medicine & hospitals are also going to shut down in a future shutdown??
I say let’s LET BOEHNER know we were proud of him today...
and to HOLD THE LINE STEADY!
Who is the smug smirking commiebabe? Rand is doing a fantastic job of explaining budgeting to her.
Thank you so much for the link.
Just saw it in the comments page and sent Mr. Speaker a quick email!
That’s Samantha Guthrie - been on MSNBC/ NBC for years now.
She was flustered and could not follow the white house talking points - you know how Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe (MSNBC) has a direct email line to the white house.

GOP Rep. to Rep. Gohmert: We Gave Base ‘False Interpretation’ That ObamaCare Could be Defeated
For the millionth time: It's not "default".
Default is when you don't pay what's due on your debt. There is more than enough revenue to pay interest on the national debt. Only an incompetent president would allow that to happen.
We are simply reaching our borrowing limit. When your credit card gets maxed out, you only go into default when you stop making payments. Obama has hijacked the debate by changing the name. It's a common Alinsky tactic. Please, please, please don't allow that here.
This debate is perfect for the Conservatives since it exposes the liberal cliches for their empty promises. The longer this goes the worse for them.
Obama has hijacked the debate by changing the name. It’s a common Alinsky tactic. Please, please, please don’t allow that here.
I agree they are changing the terms and definitions all the time.
But did you watch the Fox News Sunday Panel segment?
George Will pointed out that Jack Lew said he was not going to prioritize - which means that they (Obama or Lew) don’t intend to pay the interest on the debt. (correct me if needed)
As Rand Paul mentioned in his interview the President must pay the interest on the debt because of the legislation called the full faith and credit act. And there are enough taxes coming in to pay it.

Thanks for the Rand Paul MTP vid. Well worth watching.
Thanks for the link. Did you see how desperate Crowley got near the end. She was shaking her hands, and even stomping her feet. I expected her to start a crying tantrum because Cruz wouldn’t agree with her biased premises.
Oh I dunno. Maybe someday.
I watched Rand Paul too, and Meredith Viera was it?
He ran rings around her!
Or maybe I’m wishful thinking. I do that sometimes.
Rand pointed out that passing an appropriations bill one by one IS HOW IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE DONE!
So the pubs are letting the Dems create a whole new phrase...”CLEAN CR”, all except Cruz and Rand are pointing this out.
Those crap turds.....the political elite I mean. They like those CLEAN CR things. Some pub somewhere should be out and splaining that this so-called CLEAN CR would be like just estimating a year’s living expenses is $30,000, put the money in the account, and keep using for whatever as it comes up.
NO WAIT! We have to track our money by category you say? We need to decide if 10% of our money should be spent on grocery, maybe we can reduce that huge gas bill by changing suppliers. You know, like budgets go, like we all must do, like our businesses do.
Whatever, it ain’t rocket science.
No....instead we got this asshole thing called a CLEAN CR.
Give me two thousand breaks already.
Jonathan Jarvis, so that is the name of Obama’s aschlekker.....
My prayers are with you living in Chicaog...the redeeming feature though is you have GREAT restaurants!!!!!
I noticed that Lew was unwilling to threaten default. He certainly must realize that default only comes when the president refuses to use revenues to pay interest, and that there is more than enough revenue to do that. Lew may have a grain of integrity mixed in there somewhere.
Unfortunately, Obama has none. With Obama's willingness to lie unceasingly, it would be much harder to do that kind of ass kicking. Besides that, Obama has a willing press to cover for him. I don't think the fight will be this easy.
Just wanted to let you know. We have a system we can almost guarantee you will win. It all comes down to GOTV the right voters and you win. You would be a great representative.
Then those companies deserve to suffer a few days. It is time to end this crony capitalism and build a real market.
